Title

2001 LeMond Buenos Aires

Description

After selling KHS Aero Turbo, I missed a light weight steel... Del Rey is good but it is a little bit harsh feel. Buenos Aires frame geometry is great. 53cm frame fits really well, the ride quiality is nimble and stable. It's better than Aero Turbo, esp. in fast speed decent.

From BikePedia, 2001 Buenos Aires has 105 components, but this one has all Ultegra. So, it's more like 2002 model. The other thing is that, I had an impression of this bike being threadless headset, but it turns out this is threaded + threadless stem adapter. I was changing the stem and discovered that it is using stem adapter. So, I promptly swapped it with Velo Orange quill stem adapter instead.
Now, I can make the handlebar much higher which is a bonus.

As you can see, this is triple 9, which I like a lot, and same as Del Rey.
