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 90s, presumably from 1997. It's frame certainly is the highlight. The tubes are nicely welded together and the top and down tube have a gradually changing ovalized profile, known from Columbus Max for example. It is also painted in metallic blue with some typical 90s colorful patterns. As for the parts, you can expect reliable and well working Shimano parts with STI shifters on the bars and a triple chainring, which will help you to conquer some steep hills. Long trips, short hilly adventures or everyday rides - you can use this pretty road bike almost whenever you want and it won't disappoint.
