Bumping this thread up, almost 20 years later. Iíve owned this bike for the duration, and yesterday I went to take it for a ride and realized my poor bike had a crack in the headtube/toptube weld. The end of an era.



Here she is in her most current condition. I knew something was wrong, it felt a bit wobbly and recently started creaking every time I stood to climb. I explained away the wobblyness as being due to the fact that itís a steel bike and less stiff than my other bikes, and I thought the creak was the bb, but I couldnít find any issues even after taking the whole thing apart.




This was my first real road bike - did my first races on it, put tons of miles on it in training, let my brother borrow it when he lived in Belgium, and put some newer stuff on it when it got back.

Hereís a pic from one of my first races - in my 99$ Nike Poggio cycling shoes and NC State Cycling kit;



Anyways Lemond, rest in peace.
