Funny, but it seems there is Lemond and LeMond bike gear... which further adds to the confusion. LeMond makes spin bikes, those cleat wedges, and god knows what else... and a few years ago, Target stores carried a bunch of ultra cheapo LeMond junk. It is a confusing mess.Friction_Shifter said:Just curious. Is he still in the loop?
That's the sign of a well thought out and reasoned decision making processRD-Man said:After all his trash talking about Lance, I must admit I have somewhat steered clear of LeMond bikes, even though they're really nice rides.
Of course you are correct RD..........RD-Man said:My nose is quite intact, thank you. If Lemond bikes were the only ones out there that were great rides, that would be another story. However, there are PLENTY of great bikes out there now. Also, there are obviously MANY reasons as to why one would choose or not choose a bike. For me, if I find two bikes that ride great, look great, similar price range, etc., I'm going to lean away from the one sponsored or endorsed by a person or persons with whom I disagree. People do this all the time with any and all products. For some people, this reasoning is higher up the ladder of importance than others. For me, it becomes a determining factor only when I find other products that are as good or better than the aformentioned endorser's product. I mean no disrespect against Greg LeMond or anyone who chooses to ride a LeMond bike. I respect the man for putting his opinion out there. I don't happen to agree with it and have searched out and found bikes that I like as well or better.
Greg is indeed a very genuine, respectful, courteous individual in person. Great conversation, and a pleasure to spend time with. Although I think it was unwise on his part to publicly criticize Lance like he did, I also suspect his comments were blown out of proportion to some degree...djg714 said:If I have to believe one of the two , then I have to go with Greg.....sorry ...........
