Strengths:    the lemond reno has many strengths..very light weight, great handling, aerodynamic, shifts great, very smooth

Weaknesses:    the only weakness i can think of is the handle bar tape.. the only thing about it is that it's a light color so..or course.. it's gonna get dirty..no problem changing it though.

Bottom Line:   
Okay...if any of you want a lemond..Go for it!! the lemond reno is by far the best 1.2 bike i've rode yet..it's got it all

Weaknesses:    saddle
brakes


Bottom Line:   
(2008 model)
Great entry-level road bike for the price. I love the riding position- it works well for a long torso or just for a race-like position. I immediatley swapped out the sora front derailleur for a 105, but it still rubs when I'm in the big chainring. Couldn't stand the saddle after about 100 miles, and replaced it with a terry. Compared to an allez which is about the same price, you get one 105 component (allez is all sora I think) and fancier wheels. The brakes are terrible though.

Strengths:    Component mix,
Frame Geometry,
Brakes and crank


Weaknesses:    Saddle, pedals

Bottom Line:   
Was looking for a road bike that had a solid frame as a base and reasonable components that owuld not have to be replaced out of the box. I have ridden a number of road bikes over the years genrally building up a frame with parts groups I had, vs a new bike. But the LBS had this one n my size and there was little other than the pedals and seat that I wanted to change out. Heck....I would never bu a carbon seapost for myself. In any event It's a solid fit and a good ride and the tiers are not as bad as some people claim. Heck if I get 2000k on these on the chip-n-seal roads around here I'll be happy. The wheels give alot nicer ride than I would have thought, and the crank is stiff enough....I like the tripe vs, the compact, that is more of a personal preference. The real suprise is the FSA brakes...they stop on a dime....and I'm a clyde, so this really impressed me.

Genreally thsi is a solid allaround bike which is good for fitness and training rides. The Lemond geomtry is sopt on if you like a longer toptube.
