Just wondered if anybody on here owns the new lapierre spicy 316 2013 and what's the front forks like? As I am a 16 stone fatty and if I need to upgrade!

Cheers for the reply :D Looking at the zesty and spicy yesterday but I had it in the back of my head with me being a large soul that the rockshox fork on the spicy is too bouncy and the 514 fork was'nt adequate enough for this fat s@@ lol

The Rockshox Domain fork weighs a ton (I had one) but if you fit a motion control damper which costs about £70 it's actually a pretty decent fork and will last forever. I would take the Domain over a Fox CTD fork.

So if I fit a motion control damper do I still need to upgrade the spring in the fork to a firmer one for my weight?
