I just bought a bike.

Behold. It's a beautiful 51cm Lemond Tourmalet. Probably a 2002, which was maybe the last year they made steel frames.

I'd long been considering a Surly Cross-Check or Soma Double-Cross. I test-rode a used Cross-Check yesterday, but the 2x9 setup wouldn't work well for touring. I could have changed that pretty easily myself, but finding the Lemond exactly the way I wanted it for $50 more was easier. I do have to buy some shoes before I can really take this one very far, however.
