Rare Bike?

I can not find any information on the bike I own. I received the bike from a Friend after he no longer wanted it. It is a Lemond which I know is a very good bike name. Its all Alpha Titanium. Has a Insync front shock and is a comfort style bike. It says Saturn on the top post. So I am not sure if this was a give away or what but Google and Yahoo answers had nothing on it. so can you guys help thanks

You might want to double check that frame sticker, I suspect that it's actually Alpha Aluminum. It looks like it might be a lot like the Trek 7.2 or so. Not a bad bike, just needs some love and attention. As for the Lemond thing, I'm not sure that I'd plan my retirement based on selling it, but it does have a nice unique factor going for it. Lemond and Trek were (still are?) synonymous at one time.

It's his and he's putting it up for sale... I just happened to spot the bike on craigslist and wonder why it was so familiar.

God bless Philly.

Lack of sales = rare? No.
