    1st post - have a question

    Hi folks. My bike is out of commission and I need some help! I broke the frame on my 2001 LeMond Tourmalet beyond repair. I was wondering if my hardware would transfer over to a 2008 LeMond Victoire frame. Any LeMond experts out there?

    The fork and headsets are different. Other then that every should swap over.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    Are you the original owner? Trek may warranty the frame if you are

    Well I didn't win the frame on Ebay so I ordered a new one from BikeIsland. I went with the Wndsor Knight frameset. I'm not an avid cyclist. I ride for exercise, usually to and from the gym and other cardio sessions. Sometimes I ride just to save gas. The Knight isn't sexy, in fact it's kinda ugly, but it's going to work to get me back on the road again. The thought of spending outdoor riding time on a treadmill or other "spin" machine indoors is upsetting.

    Pay atttention ot this guy. ^^^^^ I broke my Lemond frame and because I was the original owner, Trek replaced it with a free upgrade. TWICE! Broke two frames and both times It was upgraded including the fork. Last time to a Trek since they don't deal with Lemond any longer.

    If you are original owner you may qualify for a warranty replacement. Contact a Trek dealer. (I was a Trek/LeMond shop employee for years.)

    I'm not the original owner, so i pretty much have written off this frame. Thanks for the feedback. Everything is transferring over to the Windsor fine. Had to buy a new handlebar stem to fit the new headset. Bought a new SRAM chain just because.
