- Lapierre Sizing
Yeah – I will try before I buy, just trying to cross off as many as possible, currently between: –
Spicy 516 2013 (dodgy colour scheme)
Canyon Strive (ridden a pals medium and too small but very nice & hell of a spec)
Spesh Enduro Evo (prob too heavy)
I want an all day pedaller than can handle downhill stuff and maybe a week in the alps, I also like a very stiff front end (not fox 32s)
Any other suggestions welcomePosted 5 years agohonourablegeorgeMember
I’m 6’1 on a large 516 with a 50mm stem and am very happy, it’s plenty long, think I like my TTs longer than most. Should be bob on for youy with the stock 70mm stem, I’d imagine.
EDIT – mine’s a 2010 – the geometry has been tweaked since, more standover and that, but I think the TT stayed the same
EDIT – it’s a great bike, best I’ve ever owned, seriously considering going for a Carbon 916 frame as my next purchase.Posted 5 years agocheers_driveMember
I’m not sure about the spicy but the zesty’s TT is shorter than it was so other people references may not be valid.Posted 5 years ago
I’m 6’3″ and rode a large Zesty, however it was always on the margin of being too small so I’ve requested a XL for the warranty replacement I’m waiting for as it will be a newer model year with as shorter TT.timmysSubscriber
I’m 6’2″ and ride a Large (50cm) Zesty. I’m very much at the upper end ie. have the dreadfully unfashionable stock 90mm stem and a seatpost with slight layback (KSi900 dropper) to get comfy. I’d definately be looking at the XL (54cm) one if I was you.
There have been various changes in top tube length over the years (mine’s 2009) but I think that was possibly only on the medium model.Posted 5 years ago
