The Story

Purchased new from the now-defunct Bicyclery bike shop in Half Moon Bay, CA in April 2004 for $4,000.

This bike replaced the 1999 LeMond Buenos Aires I was riding. That bike had a 59 cm frame and it always seemed way too long for me. The Blade fits me perfectly and meets my primary road needs: steady on the descents, stiff and light on the climbs.

To date, all parts are original, except for brake pads and tires.

Rock and roll
Rock and roll!
