Did Lemond Languish?

Great article about Greg/Lemond bikes Vs Trek from a website i just became familiar with, I know it's from a few years ago, I thought it was a great read, lmk what you think:

IMO lemond should have kept small as it started. The brand was big already (at least in reputation) before partnering with trek.

Hope the brand comes back but with just racing steel bikes, no rando or any touring cr@p bike that pretty much the whole market is full of those.

I agree w/you that I'd like to see the brand come back, shame it hasn't already. Maybe Cannondale or another company steps up & brings them back again(Look possibly?).

I sure miss my LeMond Tourmalet. I am looking to get my hands on another LeMond one of these days....if I can ever find one in my size that I don't have to travel halfway across the world to get.
