I am selling my 2011 Lapierre Spicy 216. I have only owned the bike since November so its condition is very good. There are a couple of stone chips on the frame (which I can send pictures of) but other than that it is spot on.
The spec is as follows:
•Frame - Spicy 216 Alloy 7005 SL OST 160mm
•Rear Shock - Fox Float R High Volume
•Fork - RockShox Domain R Coil 160mm
•Front Derailleur - Shimano SLX
•Rear Derailleur - Shimano Deore Shadow
•Shifters - Shimano Alivio 3x9S
•Front Brake - Formula RX
•Rear Brake - Formula RX
•Handlebars - Funn Fatboy 15x710
•Stem - Fuun Crossfire 31.8x65mm
•Rims - Alex FR30 / Lapierre hubs
•Front Tyre - Continental Rubber Queen 26x2.20
•Rear Tyre - Continental Rubber Queen 26x2.20
•Weight - Approx 32.84lbs/14.9kg
The bike is standard spec apart from the brakes which I have upgraded to Formula RX - much more progressive and powerful than the Avid Elixir 3's which it came with.
The brakes were bled in January 2013 and have Superstar kevlar pads front and rear.
The reviews speak for themselves with the Spicy 316 being a 5 star bike. The differences between that and the 216 are minimal - the bike descends just as hard and climbs just as well.
My bike is a medium, 46cm and is spot on for me at 5'10".
