finally the Lemond is built, full 9 speed old school Ultegra. This was the first test ride of any distance, some adjustment to saddle height and I was off. Things couldn’t have gone better, i was concerned about the 53/39 chainset being a lot bigger than the compact I’m used to but it didn’t become an issue over the route i took, there ws a bit of climbing and the bike felt good, just zinging along as only 853 steel frames can. the bars are quite a bit lower than on my other bike but after about 5 miles i got used to it and the smaller Ultegra shifters felt miles better too, the temperature was just over 30 degrees and this certainly curtailed a longer ride but I looking forward to doing ones in the days ahead
