    Just finished building up a used ‘98 Zurich frameset with Dura Ace 7800, Deda bar and stem, pro logo saddle, and Velomax Circuit wheels. I’ll post a ride update soon. This DA groupset is one of my all time favorites as well as these old Lemind steel frame sets. Let me know what you think.

    Nice. Is it 853? I nearly bought a black one years ago. I can't remember what model/year it was

    Yes, it’s Reynolds 853. Rides great. I thought that I should be riding a 53cm. This one is a 51cm but it has a long top tube. With a 110mm stem it fit Mrs perfect. Such a compliant and comfortable ride. It’s pretty responsive, corners well, climbs well, and rides straight as an arrow.

    I'am the original owner of an '88 Team LeMond Pro, with SLX tubing. I upgraded it to Campy Chorus components/wheels a few years ago, I should have done that much sooner. That bike is very responsive, smooth. I like it much better than the Motorbecane Ti Le Champion I bought just a few years ago.
