    Indurain

    What bike did Indurain ride in the 91 tour? I thought it was a Pinarello, but their ad says it was 92 to 95.

    He rode a TVT rebadged as a Pinarello. A few stages on a Pegoretti-built Pinarello.
    Delgado also rode a TVT rebadged as a Pinarello when he won in 1988.
    And Lemond rode a TVT in 1989 too, quite a nice run they had.

    Razesa was the bicycle sponsor for Banesto somewhere in there so that may be the source of confusion. The Razesa Banesto bikes I have seen were obviously Pinarellos. They had the Pinarello lug cutouts and logos on the fork crown, but had Razesa decals on the top tube.
    Budgets were small back then and lots of teams re-used bikes from year to year. Banesto probably peeled off the Pina decals and put Razesa ones on.
