    Greg Lemond 26" Titanium Mountain Bike Merlin/Clark Kent/ Light Speed????

    I went to go buy a road bike and the seller also sold me a 26" Greg Lemond Titanium Mountain Bike with Xt and Xtr components.

    I purchase this bike with a Carbonframes Calfee Lemond Road Bike. So I assume these bikes were purchased togetherso maybe 90/91.

    I have searched extensively on the web and have only come across one thread, and I can only find two photos through google search.

    Does anyone know the make and/or the value of the frame.

    I am pretty sure that they were made by Litespeed.

    Value? Same as any other 20-25 year old ti 26" mtb.
    If the XTR group is complete- It is likely more valuable than anything else on the bike.

    Those are both awesome.

    The mountain bikes were made by litespeed I believe and the XTR outfitted model was damn expensive, like $4000+ when they came out.

    I don't think I have actually seen one for sale, in any recent memory, but I would estimate based on similar outfitted ti bikes from the mid-90's, you could probably still get $800+ for it.

    I'd recommend posting in the vintage WIW thread: http://forums.mtbr.com/vintage-retro...iw-856050.html

    I'd definaely start a new thread in he VRC sections, there's guys there that will know probably, if not hen someone on retrobike will.

    The parts are all over the place, m950 parts, but thumb shifters, bontrager post goes with lemond being tied up with trek. I'd say someoen built t up exacgly how they liked it over the years, but doesn't help with narrowing down a year for the frame.
    All the gear and no idea.
