Over the years, three-time Tour de France winner Greg LeMond’s name has graced bikes made in collaboration with a variety of brands. Now, the LeMond name will once again grace the head tubes and down tubes of bikes with the newly launched LeMond Bicycles. To start, the brand will have two commuter ebikes in the range: The Dutch and Daily.
Made of carbon fiber, these models both stand out with sleek designs that feature integrated lighting and batteries as well as internally routed cables. Carbon fiber fenders and an integrated handlebar-stem combo, both painted to match the frame, further set these models apart.
The Dutch takes on the timeless silhouette of a Dutch-style step-thru commuter but with a modernized look. The carbon fiber frame features beautiful lines while a MAHLE ebikemotion X35 rear-hub motor powers the class-1 ebike up to 20 miles per hour. To continue the sleek looks, the battery is hidden in the down tube, and a headlight is integrated into the front. It comes standard with a Shimano GRX hydraulic 1×11 drivetrain that includes disc brakes as well as a Spurcycle bell. With a 40T chainring up front, and an 11-40T cassette in the rear, this bike has plenty of range for flats and even steep hills.
The Daily is the second new ebike, which adopts a sportier geometry with a traditional double-diamond frame and a high top-tube. Also made of carbon fiber, it shares similar specs to the Dutch, with the same motor and drivetrain as well as the integrated light.
Both bikes start at $4,500, with options to upgrade to LeMond carbon wheels, Shimano Di2 electronic shifting and/or a Brooks saddle. The Dutch is available in pink, dark blue and mint green, while the Daily is available in pink, dark gray and light gray.
