    Who Rode These Bikes?

    Some of you old timers might recognize these bikes. I took these pictures at Interbike in the 80's. If you do a search you'll also find my Bottechia.

    Kinda easy, I know. I'd sure like to have one of these Mavic gruppos though.

    Velo Pasadena has a replica of that TT bike. I'm not sure if it was LeMond's backup or what.

    Some yuppie catalog, I think it was Sharper Image, was selling replicas of the TT bike in 1990. I forget how it was spec'ed or the price. Anyone remember or have a copy of the catalog?

    I remember - might have been Hammacher Schlemmer. They wanted $14k or thereabouts...

    I had a friend who owned a Bottechia road frame that was so badly built the chainstays were different lengths!

    The tt bike is a replica. I snapped these of the original in 2007 or 8 when LeMond gave a talk about the 89 tour with Phil Ligget. The bike was resprayed for the 90 Tour. There is a rumor that Roland Della Santa built the tt bike for him and it was badged Bottechia but I've never confirmed that.

    While we are on the subject...........found this in my stash of old retro posters. I know a lot of people know about and remember this poster. I had it up in my room and dorm room in college. I like both Lance and Lemond and try and not let their B.S. get in the middle of what made each one great. Tried to find one on ebay and googled and came up with nada. Maybe it's worth something. Trying to decide right now between office and garage for the official hanging.

    Love the pics. I've still got that Mavic crank on my winter bike. Loved it from the day I bought back in early 90's. I also had that LeMond poster on my wall at university.

    If you're ever in Denver, go by and have a beer and burger at the Handle Bar and Grill. The owner has a butt load of really nice memorabilia.
