So i have decided it's pretty hard on here to have the nicest bike, and while I do indeed have a few nice bikes, I also wanted a bike that stood out from the crowd a little bit.
A few build issues:
Did a search on here, google and will probably need the psychic hotline as the Lapierre website is shit for basic informantion.

Only problem is the cost...
