Lovely build. Is there a story behind the frame? Looks to be in superb condition.

To follow up Pat's post, here are many more pictures of Lemond's 1990 TDF winning bike:

They may provide more inspiration for authentic team parts.

Lemond's drop-ins appear to have some sort of additional material under the tape, perhaps to make them more ergonomic:

Yea the Pedals are Brand new fresh out of there box.
I have 4 pairs of the Titan Silver ones & 6 pairs of the White Equipe ones all Brand new in there boxes complete wit he shoe plates.

It Looks like I cocked up with the bar tape, Benotto seems to be the correct type. & thats a bugger to get hold of in White.

I had a bike in once with some ergo converters like those. Essentially they looked like a piece of handlebar cut down the middle making two lengths of 'C' bar. I rolled my eyes and chucked them in the bin....

thats a great start to the new year.well done... interesting that ride rs in the tdf loved them , they must be wicked ! i wonder if they persnolized other favourit stuff much . i know that gilbert ducloselasalle did. used shallow drop touring bars. saddles must have been varied as well. i wonder how they compare to the giant cadex /s handling. even thats retro now.

Lovely bike, makes you wonder how much power you've got to be putting out to ride it with that rear cassette and crankset :shock: :lol:

Very Nice
How did those bars get by the UCI
Never safe? and they spoil a really nice piece of Kit.

i suppose the bars say a lot about gregs personality to try out and experiment with any thing new . i do agree a bit , but greg must have found some advantage . were there any other tdf bikes with them ? cant have been many !
