LeMond Is Back! And He’s Making Really Cool e-Bikes

Legendary American racer and 3-time Tour de France winner Greg LeMond has returned to the bike brand game. His latest, simply called LeMond, where he is Founder and Chairman of the Board, is launching its first new models: two tricked-out full carbon city and town e-bikes. You should sit down for this….

Dubbed The Dutch and The Daily, LeMond is bringing several unique features to the all-carbon city bike space including an internally integrated one-piece carbon fiber bar and stem along with some snazzy carbon fiber fenders. The bike designs are, um, “minimalist,” with the battery, motor and lighting system integrated into the frame for a clean, uncluttered look, kinda like what we saw in this year’s Tour on some racing bikes. Claimed to be under 27-pounds, both versions come with Shimano GRX mechanical drivetrains and there’s a Di2 and carbon wheel upgrade package available. Yes please!

The Daily

On top of a full carbon fiber frame, one-piece carbon bar/stem combo and carbon seat post, the Daily features seamless battery integration with a sleek MAHLE ebikemotion X35 motor and a multiple mode light system with wires fully integrated into the bar/stem and seat stays.

All charging for this whole thing is done by a single port. The Daily features a Shimano GRX 1×11 drivetrain with hydraulic disc brakes, a tubeless compatible aluminum wheelset and even a fancy Spurcycle donger.

MSRP: $4,500

The Dutch

The Dutch-style bike is one of the most popular designs in the history of the bicycle, particularly in flat, dense European cities, and LeMond has recreated what you may want with a full carbon fiber e-bike for any style of rider on any road, be it wearing a suit, skirt or skinny jeans.

LeMond’s The Dutch shares the same features of the Daily with an integrated carbon fiber stem/bar, carbon seat post and fenders, internal battery integration with the MAHLE ebikemotion  X35 motor, fully integrated multiple mode light system as well as a Shimano GRX Hydraulic 1×11 drivetrain with hydraulic disc brakes and some additional premium accessories including the best cowbell ever, a Spurcycle dinger.

MSRP: $4,500

    These are fine looking bikes! The designers must have had a blast figuring out all of the cable and and wire routing. Clearly, a lot of thought went into these and I’m really curious to see what Lemond comes up with next in his line. Will he have moved on from racing bikes having already ‘been there, done that?’ Will he target the recreational riders next? It’ll be fun to watch this reboot.

    One question though — Chainguard optional? When I look at these, that’s what’s missing from the classic ‘Dutch’ style. Also, if you’re going after the higher-end commuter crowd with this bike, I’d think you’d want to protect their ‘suit or skirt.’ Skinny jeans probably aren’t an issue for getting caught in the chain but that chainring tattoo on the jeans won’t be any fun.
