    I don't own a Lemond, but I really like their paint jobs.
    And, I love pie so much, I've got TWO different parlors on speed dial.

I've always coveted those early pre-Trek Lemonds, and like I tried to indicate, it would be a shame if Lemond had no input on design. But is he really just a figurehead? Is this truely accurate? LeMond Racing Cycles is obviously a corporation, but is it owned and completely controlled by Trek? Could it not have been worked out that Lemond might have been awarded a small but significant share in a company that bears his name?

    I this era of "he said, she said" or in this case "he said, he said" I really can't care less. Rumor at best unless you're actually there to hear the conversation. I like Lance, what he stands for, his cancer organization, his accomplishments, his fight against cancer, etc. Lance is a great athelete, great bike rider, etc. So are a number of other people. Lemond included. I own a Klein and a Lemond. I don't care about the politics. I do care about the sport, the bike, no matter the make. So what Trek owns Lemond cycles? So what they own Klein, and others. Its a bike, enjoy the ride no matter the make.

    Just my two cents...and that doesn't matter either!

    Hell, I don't know. I'm just looking at the new Lemonds and seeing they dropped the spine design for steel and Titanium. Yes the Top tubes are longer. I know that very well. I guess the OP wanted us to not buy Lemonds because Greg is an ass to Lance. My point is Lemond is part of the corporate Trek line and who really knows how much pull Greg has with his line these days? BTW, it would be really cool if Greg Lemond reads BF and saw this to set us all straight.

    Just when you thought that Greg Lemond might go back to cool and impressive past champion mode, he insists on opening up his mouth once more and proving that he is unable to get over the fact that Lance Armstrong has surpasssed him. From Velonews:

    LeMond, the first American to win the Tour - he won in 1986, 1989 and 1990 - said that he had come under pressure from Armstrong and his circle of friends after saying in 2001 that he was disappointed at the cyclist's association with Italian sports doctor Michele Ferrari. LeMond said that the threats continued after 2001.

    "Lance threatened me. He threatened my wife, my business, my life," LeMond told French sports daily L'Equipe. "His biggest threat consisted of saying that he (Armstrong) would find 10 people to testify that I took EPO."

    Note that this threat was supposedly made in 2001 - as in five years ago. Now that's current news - why didn't we hear about this then so Lance could prove it was wrong.

    It's funny because Lemond has this cool new bike that it is coming out with. Rest assured Trek that I would never buy such a bike if a single dime of it were to go to a whiner like Lemond.

    You know there was a time that I really looked up to and respected Lemond. His place in history is now shrinking by the moment.
    this is not new news. why didn't you hear about it?
    who knows?!! the original story was penned by samuel
    abt and appeared in the ny times after it ran in the
    intl herald tribune in 2001. not only had it appeared
    in those two newspapers, the story has been in the
    mainstream routinely ever since.

    I would buy/not buy a LeMond bike on its merits. But Greg does not help sell these bikes. Even when he was at his peak, he was always attacking other riders. Even his team mates were subjected to his constant paranoid delusions that "everyone was plotting against him".

    And, according to Greg, every race he won, he won because of his ability. Every race he lost was due to poor health, team mates plotting against him, guys on the other team that were cheating, bad weather...every excuse in the book.

    He was much like another current TdF rider in that he would show up every March fifteen or twenty pounds overweight, and then try to work himself into shape by July. By 1992 or so, he had basically become a thief: sign a contract for big money, and then go through the motions, while making endless excuses for his poor performance.

    I suspect the execs at Trek will end their association with Greg as soon as legally possible. He is a liability to the companly and to cycling in general.

    what contract(s) did he sign in/by 1992 that he went only through the motions on?

    I really do like Pizza. I have had a comearound of sorts to pizza. I think it had a lot to do with everyone around me eating nothing but pizza, because it was served in our cafeteria, and it was ****te. And when people would order pizza it was always Pappa Johns-More ****te. So I hadn't had a slice of pizza for almost 18 months (darned unusual for a 20 year old american. In fact, it was almost un-American.) And then I made some pizza with my friend Emily. From scratch. I'm hooked again.
    I guess the point I'm trying to make here is that ice cream clearly rules all, and Lance Armstrong sucks sooo much it's not even funny. I hate what he has done to this sport.

    To rehash an old party line.
    It is not a party unless there is pizza.

    I like LeMonds. I'd consider one next time I'd buy a bike.

    As for Greg, does he hand deliver each one? Ask to sleep over & have dinner? Borrow money? Date your girlfriend? Just sayin.... And I vote for Apple Pie. And pizza with onions, mushrooms and peppers.

    Doping has been going on since the beginning, so I'm not sure how GL could beat known dopers and own the fastest stage in the the TdF (until last year?) and be clean [when LA can't]. Sounds like the pot calling the kettle black.

    Lemond's statements are innuendo without proof.

    And that makes it sounds like sour grapes on Lemond's part.

    And that seems like classless whining by an American cycling legend who loses more respect every time he pisses on Armstrong's legacy without incontrovertible evidence.

    Nobody wins. Least of all Lemond. Ironically he's actually diminishing Lemond far more than Armstrong. Even if what he says IS true. I wonder if Lemond's agent tells him this. You would hope so.

    'Kudos' to him for coming forward? Well there's one person that thinks it's a good idea. And I'll bet there's another somewhere. This is public relations 101. Not everybody took that course.

    I like Greg and Lance.

    Of course I liked cycling when people (ignorant Americans) didn't know who Greg Lemond was. EVERYONE knows who Lance is. Lance built himself into a great athlete, but the media made him a star. Hell...he was even nailing Sheryl Crow--not a 10, but not bad either. He could probably get Jennifer Anniston too if he wanted. I don't suppose Greg enjoyed all that, but damn...what an athelete.

    Now if you want to talk about a$$holes, there's Andy Hampsten...
