My wife has a 06-09(?) Lemond Versailles with a broken derailleur hanger and I was wondering if there are any other sources, other than derailleurhanger.com that might carry what I need. I've emailed Trek, but given the derth of information on their website regarding Lemond bikes, I suspect that Lemond is not one of their happier acquisitions. I've tried to attach a picture of the item and if anyone has any information I would greatly appreciate your feedback.

If it looks like this one, it's Trek SKU 273675 and they have plenty in-stock.

I think the relationship between Trek and Lemond ended when Lemond publicly accused Armstrong of doping.
I predict Lemond will have the last laugh.

Thats the culprit. I've called my LBS and they have ordered two and they will be here tomorrow!

I think you are probably correct Jim, but Trek's complete removal of every mention of the name Lemond from its website seems a bit unfair to all who purchased Trek's version of a Lemond. I imagine they made a pretty penny off that name, at least while the brand survived. Cheers!
FWIW My buddy just (within the last month) had a '02 Lemond Zurich dropout break. Trek replaced the frame under warranty. They didn't have the same frame but substituted a couple year newer Ti/carbon frame. He was the original owner and had his original reciept.

Why are you seeking other sources than derailleurhangars.com? Not in stock, bad experience, too expensive, long delivery...?
