LeMond Buenos Aires

SPORTS SEDANA champion's philosophy underscores each LeMond rolling out of the Wisconsin plant: Comfort trumps efficiency. That's how Greg LeMond won three Tours de France—atop buttery steel frames like this one. And the Buenos Aires offers something extra: carbon fiber. By mating carbon tubes in the top half of the frame with steel along the bottom, Greg LeMond preserves his ride's signature stability while shedding half a pound.

Bonus: Fifty miles in the saddle and no hint of back pain.

Bummer: To keep the price down, LeMond spec'd the bike with Campagnolo's heavier, less durable Veloce drivetrain.

Brand: LeMond $2200
