    The #1 bike maker to win the TDF over history is Peugeot. Just goes to show what that means.

    If you mean Claudio Chiappucci, he never won the Giro. If you mean Franco Chioccioli, he won the Giro in 1991, but on a Pinarello. Chiappucci was twice 2nd (1991, 1992) once 3rd (1993)

    Glad to hear it....even if it was in name only. My first bike was a huffy, only because my son wouldn't have anything to do with it. I took alot of flack for riding that bike. I had no idea why at the time. It was a bike wasn't it? If only I could have told them it was tour worthy. Laughing is good for your soul.

    Between 1955 and 1985, there were many different "decals" on the winning bikes at the Tour de France. But, nine out of ten years during that period, the winner's primary bike (not necessarily his hill climbing bike or time trial bike) was pretty much the SAME bike: a bike with Reynolds 531 frame, Reynolds 531 fork, Campy hubs, Campy changers. The differences year to year were only details, such as the bars and stem (usually Cinelli) and the brakes (several companies competed with Campy on brakes).

    So, Trek still has about two decades to go before carbon fiber bikes will catch up to Reynolds 531 bikes. And Shimano has about fifty years to go before the number of winners featuring Shimano components catches up with the number of winners who have used Campy components.

    How many Tours were won during that same time period with 5, 6, or 7 speed freewheels rather than 10 speed cassettes? With toe clips and straps rather than clipless pedals? Friction down tube shifters rather than STI / Ergo levers? How about quill stems versus threadless? I hope these new-fangled gimmicks don't catch on!

    Thank god I can still access Bike Forums through my manual typewriter and an extension cord!

    Regarding Lance's Treks, I believe one year, maybe the first, his "Trek" was a re-badged Litespeed Titanium. Also, Lemond won in 1989 on a Bottecchia, I believe.

    Lance also competed on a bike branded as a Caloi. I have one of their mt bikes, I have no idea who actually made the LA frame.

    I must be going blind or daft,

    How about Colnago. Their bikes have probably won just about any race worth winning.

    Armstrong's TT frame in 1999 was a re-sprayed Litespeed Blade. Lance bought it himself. The road bikes were Trek OCLV carbon.

    Lemond rode a TVT carbon road frame with Mavic components in 1989. He used a steel Bottechia with Mavic for TT stages.

    In 1986 on a LOOK with La Vie Claire and in 1990 on a Greg Lemond branded bike. Does anybody know who manufactured that 1990 GL model?

    The CALOI frames ridden by Motorola were rebranded Merckx. They even said CALOI by Eddy Merckx on the decals (though the 'by Eddy Merckx' was very tiny font)

    Correct.

    Caloi is Merckx for the Brazilian market.

    Really, are they designed by the Merkx factory or is this just a bike manufacture that Merckx owns? I might have a bit more respect for my mt bike now?!

    Only the top road models are actual Merckx frames......they sponsored the Lotto team too. Tchmil won at Paris-Roubiax in 94 on a Caloi.

    Similar to when Serotta made the 7-Eleven frames and Huffy paid for the branding.
