Okay, this goes out to all the cyclists who read this blog: I’m looking for opinions and input.
After five years of faithful service, I think it’s time to retire my 2002 LeMond Tourmalet from primary road machine status.
It’s not a decision I’m taking lightly, as I love my LeMond. But it’s been through hell, and its age is showing. I’ve also become a far better rider over the past few years, and want a more high-performance machine to work with for the next 5-or-so (or more) years.
But here’s the catch: I have a limited budget, which rules out a lot of the more sexy stuff. My top end is $1600, give or take. So I have to be creative.
