Those were the take-home points from's first impressions of Lemond's 2007 Triomphe. Confirming previous reports, the new all-carbon offering from Lemond was designed entirely independent from Trek, thus, "felt noticeably different" when comparing it to the Madone. The reviewer goes on to say:

"I didn’t have to think about what the bike was doing, which allowed me to enjoy the idiotic grin on my face, crazy look in my eyes, and yelps of glee from my mouth as I chased Greg"

Uh huh. Anyhoo, if you hadn't noticed, a lot of unique tube shaping went into making the Triomphe frame to achieve this confidence-inspiring ride. For example, notice the assymetrical chainstays on the left. also hints at how Lemond will incorporate the Triomphe 'series' into the Lemond line. The Triomphe series will include the Versailles ($1979), Buenos Arires ($2419), Zurich ($2639), Victoire ($4289) and the 850 gram Penultimate Ultimate Tete de Course ($$$$$). The previously reported aluminum/carbon spine bikes will be the Alp D'Huez ($1800) and the Chambery ( $2100).
