LeMond’s carbon fiber ebikes are lightweight works of art

Aesthetics are supposedly subjective, however I’ll be darned if LeMond’s new ebikes aren’t essentially the most lovely electrical bikes I’ve ever ridden.

If you’re into biking, there’s a great probability you’ve heard of the title Greg LeMond. With his racing days behind him, the three-time Tour de France winner has a few forays into making ‘acoustic’ bikes, however the latest iteration of LeMond Bikes go the electrified route — in type.

The firm at present has two fashions, the ‘Dutch’ and ‘Prolog,’ the previous being an upright metropolis bike and the latter sporting a extra aggressive hybrid body. Both fashions are constructed from carbon fiber — a fabric LeMond helped popularize to be used in bicycle frames.

As one would hope for his or her $4,500 price ticket, these are utterly authentic frames, not simply off-the-shelf elements. The body, fork, and the mixed handlebar/stem are all function monocoque carbon fiber development. The seatpost, fenders, and even the proprietary (and optionally available) racks and baskets are all made for carbon fiber too.
