I rode Lemonds for 6 years. First an aluminum Tourmalet I had bought for a beater bike. Loved the fit!

I ride a 58 in everything else but then Lemond wasn't offered in 58, it was a 57 or 59. I went with the 57 and it fit like a glove. Sadly the frame snapped on a climb. It was wimpy aluminum.

Upgraded to a partial carbon, spine design Chambery. Best ride ever! Much better than my full carbon Madone. I'm guessing because of the geometry and no material debates.

Sadly that one snapped too, not at the carbon sections but at the aluminum section near the rear dropouts.

But the best fit and ride in my 23 years of riding roadies.

I wish I could have another but I'd be worried about it snapping figuring anything I get Lemond now would be used. I'd worry less with a classic steel frame though.
