Lapierre Zesty 314

Postby rebel_brown » Sun Feb 03, 2013 12:20 pm

Picked this up this week, haven't even had a chance to ride it yet!

Image

Frame: Alloy SL Hydroformed / OST 140mm, 42cm/Small
Rear Shock: Fox Float R
Fork: Fox 32FRL Open Bath 140mm
Front Derailleur: Shimano SLX
Rear Derailleur: Shimano XT
Shifters: Shimano Deore
Cranks: Shimano SLX (22/32/Sunline Bash)
Pedals: Exotic Alloy Flat
Brakes: Formula RX 180/180
Handlebars: Sunline V-One 711mm
Grips: Giant Sole-Oh
Stem: Thomson Elite X4 70mm
Wheels: Mavic CrossRide Disc
Front Tyre: Maxxis High Roller 2.5 60a Dual Ply
Rear Tyre: Kenda Nevegal DTC 2.35
Saddle: Charge Spoon
Seat post: Reverb 125mm x 420mm
Weight: 31.2lb

The bike came with a Thomson Elite post but it had been cut too short which gave me a decent excuse to get a Reverb. Plans are to swap out the Deore shifters for some with removable windows and get some lighter tyres, this pair weigh a ton! Might even swap out the bash for an e13 in black if I find one for the right price.

Looks mint! Great bikes. I bought a 2013 514 last December and couldn`t be happier. Fantastic suspension platform - makes my old 09 Stumpy FSR feel like a hardtail :D

And yes, those High Rollers do weigh a ton but probably won`t pinch flat like the Rocket Ron/Nobby Nic combo I have on mine :(

Enjoy!!

Picked it up for £900 minus the pedals and Reverb, then swapped the grips and seat over from my old bike. Hoping to get out on it tomorrow for a blast, I've got high expectations!

Minor update, swapped out the Deore shifters for some SLX numbers so I could run the brakes further inboard. Also swapped the Reverb remote over to the left hand side of the bars, feels much better this way.

Before:

After:

Next job on the list is to sell the Thomson and get a shorter stem, think a Funn Funnduro is going to be the likely choice.
