    I think, from looking at the decals available for sale on their website, it's a 2002 Litespeed Siena. It was very filthy when I got it - years of caked on gunk. It cleaned up nice though, and rides nice too!

    Looks like a nice bike. If you don't mind my asking, how much did you pay? Is that steel or titanium?

    Great either way, just curious!

    It's Ti, with 10sp Campy on it. $500! Course then I had to go and change out the bars, stem, bar tape, saddle, and tires... And it needed new brake pads and a couple of cables replaced.

    That's amazing! Ti and Campy? Yeah, wow!

    I googled the bluebook value, but it wasn't calculated, though the bike was listed. It looks like the retail value was about $3,600 in 2002. Not sure how much something like that would be now. A lot. I'd say that's worth more than $500.00. Good find.

    I got my Le Monde from Craigslist. Not sure when maybe 2014. Paid $595.00 for it. It was it great condition, but I replaced the chain and cassette. New saddle, seatpost, stem, and bartape.

    Whoa! Even old fat bike me would be tempted with that road bike. Amazing find. Congrats.
