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 ladies bicycle stems from the 1970s and it's frame has been built with "anglais" geometry with one sloping top tube. The tubes are connected by lugs, which are nicely highlighted by a narrow gold line. Our Lapierre is equipped with nice French parts from the era like Mafac brakes, Pelissier hubs, Mavic rims and Simplex shifting.
Great looking and reliable bike for your daily or weekend rides with an authentic 70s style.
