Lapierre Spicy 516 2013
The Lapierre Spicy 516 2013, having completely changed for 2012 continues with the new OST+ frame. Building on the previous success of the Lapierre Spicy OST platform the new Lapierre Spicy 516 2013 offers an overall improved set of geometry that makes the Spicy 516 handle even better than its predecessor.
Lapierre are so confident with their OST+ platform improvements that they have abandoned the need to fit a Fox Talas adjustable height fork, saving weight and adding a new level of plushness to the front end suspension.
For 2013 the Spicy 516 once again can boast a high quality build using better finishing kit than the 2012 version. Race Face Turbine, a built in Rockshox Reverb seatpost and Easton bars and stem.
The Spicy sheds its chain device in favour of a Shimano Shadow Plus rear mech to keep the chain under tension and on the bike.
Like the Lapierre Zesty, the Lapierre Spicy also sports a shorter chainstay, a lower bottom bracket height and a whole one degree slacker DH head angle allows the rider to tear down twisting, tight terrain, tackling steeper descents, taking them faster and with more confidence whilst maintaining that new lower slung centre of gravity to keep you stable so you can smooth out everything in your path. An oversized DH front rotor means you can carry more speed and drop anchors when you really need to.
The Lapierre Spicy 516 2013 has taken Enduro riding to a whole new level. An overall shorter wheelbase makes tight cornering even easier than the previous generations using the OST platform. A down hill, freeride bike that can climb!
Buy the Lapierre Spicy 516 2013 OST+ if you want one of the best climbing 160mm travel full suspension mountain bikes that eats descents and wins Mega style Enduro events with Fox suspension at an ideal mid price point.
