2010 Lapierre Zesty 214

Nirvana Cycles just got in this 2010 Lapierre Zesty 214 in a stunning Kit Kat red colour scheme. For 2010 Lapierre have tweaked the aluminium Zesty in several areas. Apparently the top tube is 5mm shorter although Lapierre’s own site doesn’t list any geometry changes. The top tube to seat tube junction is also slightly different, possibly to increase strength, standover height and join the upper swing link pivot directly to the top tube. In addition to frame changes the Zesty also gets a shorter stem, wider handlebar and a new 214 base model. The 214 sells for £1799, is a large (50cm) in my photos and there are more in this Flickr set.

Lapierre’s new downhill rig remains essentially a single-pivot bike with a linkage-driven shock, but its designers claim that the floating BB helps isolate the bike’s 200mm of suspension travel from the pedalling dynamic and reduce bob. Lapierre bikes seem hard to ride but are really perfect for me.
