Lance's bike gift to girlfriend SherylSao

Kind of makes me cringe to think of this year's Tour coverage.

I wonder what kind of rig he bought for her.

LANCE'S BIKE GIFT TO GIRLFRIEND SHERYL

Champion cyclist Lance Armstrong has given his girlfriend Sheryl Crow a top-of-the-range mountain bike for her upcoming birthday.

Musician Crow has become a regular at the Tour de France winner's training camp in Solvang, Calif., and told the sports hero she was keen to join him in the saddle.

So the generous biker decided to surprise Crow with an early birthday surprise.

He says, "She's not a cyclist, but she'll pick it up."

He's only going to give her a Trek, so whatever their top of the line is, that's what he gave her. On another site, maybe cyclingnews.com, it says he gave her a Madone, not a mountain bike.
Well that just isn't fair, now is itPaulCL

Not that I want one, but apparently the Madones are on backorder for..well..forever. And here's a non-cyclist getting one which will probably get a total of a 100 miles in its' lifetime.
Not only that............CARBON110

But that BIKE exactly was ordered by someone on this very board but sold to Sheryl. The person who was suppose to get it isn't very upset about it since they ( he/she ) understand very well the circumstances.

Besides, if I was Lance I would have given her a Madone and if I was Sheryl I would have given him a guitar and some lessons =)
maybe.....Sao

Sheryl can work her way into Kirsten Gum's chair and broadcast the Tour next to Bob.

That might be fun. Sorta.
Sheryl shoulda held out for a Colnago C-50 Anniversary ed. ;(nm)ColnagoFE

Maybe she could perform during halftime -- I mean -- during a rest day of the TDF. Or sing "Every day is a winding road" as they climb and descend mountain switchbacks...please, no.

You know Lance got the bike for free, so how cheap is that? Like a girl getting a box of candy from a guy who works for Russell Stovers - not very meaningful. For Lance's next birthday he'll get her boxed set of greatest hits.
LOL I was thinking the same thing!No_sprint

I guess it's the thought that counts!
Money and the cost of something probably ...Live Steam

doesn't mean anything to people with that type of means. I am sure she doesn't even know what it costs. The idea that he gave her a bike is what must have meaning to her.
exactly...what a cheapskate! (nm)ColnagoFE

Some Trek he got for free anyway I'd guess...big spender (nm)ColnagoFE
