  1. LeMond Z team TVT production bikes: I just acquired one of the LeMond Z team TVT replica bikes. It is not a genuine team bike, but rather one of the production ones they sold back in approximately ’91. It is all original, but came to me without a seat and it has incorrect bar tape.

    I have studied threads and photos of the team bikes and it appears that the team riders used different seats (Rolls, Regal, etc.). Does anyone know what the replica production bikes came with stock?

    It looks like the old Benotto white tape was the standard on the team bikes. On the production replicas as well?

    Thanks for the help! My LeMond collection is growing…

    • Thank you for your interest in our blog. We’re not sure about a 100% correct answer here but we believe these replica bikes were combined with the Rolls saddle. Same thing for the Benotto tape. Love to hear that you also have a lemond collection. If you’d like to talk about it, please send us a mail (see home page).

  2. Can you share photos of your collection?

  3. Hi,

    I just wanted to say I really enjoy the blog. Keep up the great work. I noticed that Prendas Ciclismo is selling replica ADR kits from 1989. Check it out.

    Thanks again!

  4. Thank you very much for the tips on the poster!!!!

  5. Hi guys, thanks for the blog. I used to be the rep for Roland Della Santa, Greg’s first coach and mentor as well as his frame builder and proponent of the laid-back geometry in frames. Typified by slack seat tube angles (longer top tubes). This was also the prototype which was used and manufactured by TREK corporation when they contracted to make the LeMond frames and bicycles. I think we can all thank the poor Winter in the Sierra-Nevada mountains in 1976 as having been partly responsible for launching the cycling career of Greg LeMond (he was a free-style skier up until then). I have also been a photographer in the sport of cycling during those days in the 80’s and have a few images of Greg that graced magazine covers during that period as well. Trying to dig them up for you too. The Huffy he had decals for in the 1986 Coors race was actually a Della Santa too. But you know how sponsors are! Much like the Windsor decals that appeared on Eddy Merckx’s DeRosa in Mexico City for the Hour Record ride.

  6. This is a great site, I’m glad I found it! I’ve been a Lemond fan ever since I first saw him race on tv in 1984 when I was just 13 years old. It’s a shame that he doesn’t get the respect he deserves here in the U.S., and it doesn’t surprise me that it was 3 Europeans that created this site. I will be following the site and Facebook page in the future, keep up the good work!

  7. It seems to me that a little remembrance of something twenty-five years ago is in order today:

  8. Hi, I’m off topic.

    Can’t seem to find what I’m looking for… Does any of you guys know if the La Vie Claire winter hat seen in the film Slaying the Badger (29:30 min) is being sold anywhere?

  9. Just found your blog. Fantastic site. A few years ago Colorado cyclist was selling autographed posters of Greg LeMond and Lance Armstrong right after his first tour victory. LeMond being my inspiration for becoming a cyclist was the first poster I purchased. My wife suggested buying both. For some inate reason I declined buying the Armstrong poster. Good thing. It’s worthless now. My signed Lemond crossing the finish line at the 1989 Worlds is priceless. Gilbert

  10. Great site, chapeau! I’ve been a Greg fan ever since the mid 80’s when us UK cycling fans had no televised races and followed the sport in magazines. 1982 Worlds silver medal at Goodwood is my earliest memory, and when Channel4 televised the Tour from 1985… there was something about him…don’t know if it was the personality/character behind the Oakleys rather than being a cold machine, or willingness to innovate or what. Was lucky enough to see him in the flesh at Le Tour in England in his last participation in ’94, day before he climbs off. Keep up the great site!

  11. It was pretty cool to find your fans of lemond site thanks for giving him the credit he deserves a true sports man! Oh you should start selling those fans of lemond tshirts I would buy one!!

  12. Hi. I have a poster signed by Greg
    Its a 1989 final tt shot in front of arc de triumph
    Any way u may know how i might be able to verify authenticity?
    Thanks…. Off to spin class!

  13. How and where can I post some photos of my LeMond bike collection?

  14. Hi,
    I’ve recently built up a replica of Greg’s 1990 TdF TVT 92 which was featured on The Radavist .
    I sourced all of the components as per Greg’s build but have had huge issues trying to get the syncro 7spd shifters and freewheel to work with the 8spd rear derailleur.
    Has anyone else suffered from this issue and worked out a solution?



  15. HI Lemond fans – on the ´base of an 1986 ELYPSE frame I intend to build up a 1986 LOOK TVT – but I am not sure for the coulour ot the LaVie Clairé Team bikes.. Please someone will be able to help? At the moment Grigio Alloy Met. will be a good choise

    Many thanks in advance
