Eurobike Video: Nico’s Lapierre Zesty

by singletrackjon 4

Just for our Premier Users, here’s Matt having a chat with Nico Vouilloz about his tricked out Mega Avalanche special Lapierre Zesty. While it looks pretty standard, he’s made some rather clever pro-bike tweaks to get it riding exactly how he wants it to. The attention to detail is pretty special but if you were familiar with the details of the special Sunn DH bikes he won a good number of his 10 World Championships on then it’s not out of the ordinary for him. There’s a special 15mm crown race sleeve to lift up and slacken the front end, an offset rear shock mount to counter the front end lift without reducing the travel, some special prototype soft compound Hutchinson tyres as well as the rather rare BOS Deville fork which offers a travel reduction adjustment that doesn’t interfere with the fork length…
