LeMond Looking to Start Making Bikes Again?
We’re uncertain how long it has been up, but just after posting that Greg LeMond had started a new company to continue sales of his revolution trainer, we noticed that there is a survey on GregLeMond.com, inquiring to whether or not they should resurrect the LeMond road bike brand. LeMond bicycles was founded by Greg in 1990 as he was looking to create better bikes for himself to race and he thought they could be sold to the general public. In 1995, Greg struck a deal with Trek much like Gary Fisher or Gary Klein. Trek manufactured and distributed the bicycles until a lawsuit filed by LeMond cycling led to a counter suit by Trek, and essentially the death of the brand. The lawsuits have since been settled, and with the whole Lance chronicles, who knows?
What do you think? Should LeMond start making bikes again? Would you buy one?
