$300 bike.

Bought the frame from Lincoln on Saturday, scrounged up the parts I needed from stuff I had in the shed and now it looks like this. Rides like a dream, smooth as silk. Weighs 9kg as it stands. Could easy get into the low 8kg or even 7kg with a bit of money thrown around but can't see the need.

Not bad for $300. Thanks Lincoln :mrgreen:

Lovely frame and great colours. Lemond, the only American TdF winner and you're riding a winner as well.

Calling it a $300 bike when you throw hundreds if not 1000+ dollars of parts on it isn't really honest...

Lovely bike and sure $300 is a bit of an exaggeration but lets say to all that there are lots of lovely older really decent frames that can be had for under $500 that with a decent raid of your spare parts bin will make an excellent bike to ride.

Very nice. The only thing is the word "LeMond" does not appear in enough places! :D :D

Yeah, did exaggerate a bit. But I did already have the parts. :D

It is a "Made In America" frame and he is American so that's to be expected I think!
