At first, I thought it said they were donating €10,000 (not ¥10,000) per frameset and wondered how expensive the thing must be to cover that. Nevermind.

Sorry…but FUGLY comes to mind.

Will the LeMond version come with sour grapes too?

For a 25th anniversary bike I would have rather seen some sort of remake with dt shfiters and remake delta brakes. Did even ride a Look branded frame? Pedals, yes but frame? This bike speaks nothing of GL’s win. Heck, there’s isn’t even any yellow on it.

On a side note I don’t think much of Lemond’s character.

Love the paint jobs…. love the stealth look the anniversary bike. To bad Look had to go and ruin it by involving lemond… would definitely consider buying it if it wasn’t for that fact.

LeMond was the greatest.

phlat albert - 10/06/11 - 12:08pm

can you make it more like lemond’s bike cuz I don’t like lemond anyway?! wtf?! by sour grapes do you mean roadie “whine”?

Louis - 10/10/11 - 9:58am

Because nothing evokes the classic 80′s cycling nostalgia of Greg LeMond like all black, nude carbon.

Seriously, WTF? Can anyone point to a single thing on this bike that pays homage or even references Greg LeMond other than the 25 sticker?

On the other hand, please give me two, the bike is sick.

They should celebrate LeMond being right after the indictments

I just found this site while doing a search for Lemond bikes. I know that most of these comments are older but I wonder what these posters would say now that it has been proven (and admitted to by Lance) that Greg was right all the time!!!! At minimum Trek owes him a heck of an apology.
