The Sarthe would be my bike if I were in the market new MJs are some mix of different material and IMO are pretty generic nowadays. The Sarthe carries on the steel legacy. I think they use a TrueTemper alloy instead of the Reynolds currently.

LeMond makes a big deal about their geometry and I do find the "relaxed" seattube with the resulting longer toptube to be comfortable and efficient. You need to ride it.

Can't give you much about the others but for me it begins and ends with the LeMond.

Of course I don't care that LeMond doesn't get along with Lance either.



Who's this Lance guy?
