VeloNews' 1st "Buyer's Guide", 2003, had an introductory article, "Five legends remember their favorite bikes." The story of LeMond began with a photograph of a young of LeMond, "LeMond with his first love: his yellow Cinelli in 1976" was the caption. However, the headtube logo seen in the photograph was not that of a Cinelli. Richie Sachs was the first to identif y it as a Della Santa logo. And subsequently I spoke to Roland and he confirmed that the bike was his. So yes, he built bikes used by LeMond. Don't know if used any in a Tour or if he built any under the LeMond brand. Perhaps you can ask him via his contact info at
