Jeannie Longo bicycle - None currently in stock

On this page: 44cm Jeannie Longo road bike, which is sold. We left this page up with this bike because of its interesting design and its relation to the greatest female racer of all time.

Jeannie Longo is the greatest female racer of all time and one of the world's finest-ever athletes. She earned 59 French championships, 13 world championships and an Olympic gold medal. In addition, she held the world hour record and won countless other races. Her career was astonishingly long. She began racing in 1975, raced in the 1984 Olympics and won the French Time Trial Championship in 2011. Late in her career she was beating women who weren't even born when she started racing.

44cm Team Longo Jeannie Longo bicycle - Sold
44cm seat tube x 48cm top tube.

This bike uses the design popularized by Georgina Terry. While it has a standard 700c rear wheel, the front wheel is 24" x 1". This allows for a much shorter top tube, properly accommodating the shorter torsos most women have. This is sometimes called "women-specific geometry".

Our bike has a Shimano 105 kit with Shimano Exage levers. Bar and stem are SR. Rims are Araya. Saddle is a Vetta women's saddle.

It's built with Tange Infinity double-butted chrome-moly tubing. Good stuff.
