No longer an object of desire

A few months back I posted about the LeMond Washoe and how I wanted one, even though I couldn’t actually justify it alongside my existing Singular Firebird and LeMond Buenos Aires. I was seriously considering importing one, and had got to the point of working out if there was a way I could afford to order one in the new year.

Fortunately though LeMond solved the problem for me by increasing the price by $500. At $1799 it was expensive, at $2299 it’s, in my opinion, way overpriced for an off the peg 853 frame, even if it does include an ENVE fork and Chris King headset.
