I could be wrong . . .

But I think Greg rode on Mavic components in 89-90. Anyone know?

Team Z

Team Z rode 7-speed Campy C-Record in 1990 and '91; 8-speed in '92. Here are links to some photos:

LeMond did ride Mavic for one year (in '89), but that was on a Bottechia frame -- not a LeMond -- when he rode for Team ADR.

That Z bike in the first 2 photos is a re-badged TVT carbon fiber bike with aluminum lugs. There were quite a few TVT frames being ridden with different brand names and paint during those years. Indurain and Delgado's Pinarello was actually a TVT as well.

Greg's bike would have been full C-Record with Delta brakes, Scott Drop-in bars, and a San Marco Regal saddle, and Time pedals. The rims were more than likely the Campy Omega Strada, but not positive on that point. The brake calipers on that TT bike in the 3rd photo are Chorus monoplaners.

The team also had some Columbus TSX frames for certain non-mountain stages that had the Z paint job.

I thought the 89 Tour Bottecchias were Campy C-Record...the brakes (on the road) were Deltas

Nope, it wasn't Campy. It was definitely Mavic SSC. Take a look at this photo:

http://grahamwatson.com/dublin/lemond/image14.html

I'm sure there are better photos out there. If I had a working scanner, I'd scan tons of old Winning magazines. That Bottechia was uber-sweet, and the Mavic crankset was especially hot.

You are absolutely correct...I must have been confusing the ' 90 Z team LeMonds with the great ' 89 Bottecchias (my dream bike). Now my vision has changed, (note to self) first the frame then find elusive Mavic components...this will be fun!!!

sorry colker1...i just copied and pasted the bike of dnovo (thats his alias) from the serrotta website and pasted the photo here...nice bike really...but not my size...saw a size 52 in Manila...i think there are 2 bike frames for sale though...the other is a 54?... ill check it out and maybe...just maybe...put it up in ebay in case you are interested...the owner of the bike shown here got too little seat post left on his bike...mine has to have at least 5 inches sticking out of the frame with lower handlepost for that racy look...it makes sense to put in FRENCH components (mavic) for a FRENCH TEAM BIKE like the Z team...but i dont know...i still kinda like the one on Greg's bike...Scott drop in bars...campy delta..campy parts...im still dreaming...but when the project takes off ( if the bike frame 52cm is still available) ill let you guys know... ;)

I love that gruppo--it was the equal to the best that was available at the time. I still have a NIB Mavic crankset that was acquired as a start to a full Mavic build-up on a commuter project that never got off the ground. Saw some NIB mechs and shifters on eBay recently, thought about it, but have too much going on right now.

Nice Italian bike!

"Hand Made" by the Billato Brothers. Notice the "Hand Made" on the brake bridge. The Tommaso's built by Billato also had this feature.

Billato also built steel bikes for Look and Marin.

Campy introduced 8 speed in 1991. It is possible that the team had it sometime during 1990.

Campy equipped Lemond Z team bike on ebay?

hi guys....i just found out that djudd had another thread in this forum where in he found a link to ebay seller who claims to be selling a genuine Greg Lemond ridden Team Z steel bike...got curious...so copy and pasted again the photos from the seller (before the photos disappear!) and pasted it here...one other guy says he too saw the item for sale (a little above $2000 but the reserve was not met so the bike was unsold as of August 8 2005)...the problem is the other guy noticed that there was no number peg on this bike and also...while the bike is Campy equipped...he saw the Mavic Crankset and wondered whether Lemond would ride a mismatched grouppo on his bike....furthermore...he thinks its a scam...my thoughts are.....if you got $2000 to spend...build up your own bike...dont get scammed...very very difficult to buy a Greg Lemond original unless its from Greg Lemond charity auction or something...good luck guys...i guess the hunt is on for a GREG LEMOND RETRO TEAM Z bike.....i like the Campy equipped bike better with the Scott Drop in handlebars on the ebay sellers photo...but i also think this could not have been a Greg Lemond original unless the seller provides a more convincing GUARANTEE...... now this is 54cm bike!
