In 1946, Gaston Lapierre started a small bicycle shop in Dijon, France in the beautiful region of Burgundy. From the start, Lapierre produced also road bikes, which were not as well known as some bog names on the French market. In 1972 a new and bigger factory was constructed on the outskirts of Dijon in order to meet higher demand and to be able to grow.
When a new type of bicycles appeared and gained popularity, Lapierre made the right decision and got involved in the MTB mania. It was a great success and Lapierre is best known for their MTBs even today. In the 90s, production of road bikes has been restored and nowadays you can see teams like FdJ winning races on Lapierre bikes.
This Lapierre road bike stems from the late 80s. It is based on a steel lugged frame made of Vitus 999 cr-mo tubes and equipped with a set of Shimano parts, which will not disappoint. On the contrary, they run like a clockwork and you can be sure they they will last, just as the frame set. The front fork is fully chromed, giving the bike an elegant touch.
Great bike for everyday use, but it is capable of long rides just as well. And if you are going to take it to some hilly terrain, the tripple chainring will flatten all the steep roads and spare your knees.
