Trek was certainly an up and comer before Lance, sure - and Schwinn did themselves no favors with poor marketing choices. But when talking the difference between two mid-grade bikes, the relative fortunes of the manufacturing firms has zippidee doo dah day to do with the relative merits of the bikes themselves, which was my initial main point.
