The cheaper Imola actually has the better components. Shifters aren't ergo (Campy) but appear to be 105 level brifters.

Cheeseroller, you've posted these before and I think you have gotten alot of feedback already on them? What more do you need?

Honestly I'd buy that LeMond if I could afford it, I think it's stunning. They are all good bikes, buy the one that you feel suits your needs the most. If you've posted these before, then you've probably received all of the real feedback you're going to get.

I'd take the Lemond. Nice frame.

(Are those Bianchis really the same size? Maybe it's camera angle, but they don't look it.)

I like the green one. Cool color combo would make me want to ride it.

I'd show up on this guys doorstep with 500 and if he doesn't take it, go offer 550 for the lemond.

I am with Bianchigirll only in reverse order, but again I will warn you against parking these at a bike rack. Maybe you should buy them both so when the first one gets swiped you can ride the other one (until it gets swiped)

Well the Lemond is stunning and the nicest bike of the bunch but it is more of a collectors show bike than a daily rider. For just a nicer road bike to commute with the newer cheaper Bianchi actually makes more sense.

What makes the Lemond a collectors bike?
