What about you?!?
Definitely keep the LeMond, as it has sedimental value, and note Greg LeMond is the only American (in the record books) as having won the TdF. (go ahead and flame me, but facts are facts).

Me, I have a LeMond Team Pro which I've upgraded with new components & wheels, the first model he put his name on, is my only real keeper. But I kept the 53 chain wheel (when most bikes came with 52's) as it has LeMond stamped many times on it along the outer edge.
