Product description

My Lapierre Zesty 714 is up for grabs.

I've owned the bike for 20 months and am the original owner. I've mostly ridden it around my local trails in north wales with a mixture of trail centre and natural terrain rides. I've also spent a weekend in the alps taking part in the Passporte du soliel event.

I am a fairly aggressive rider but the bike has had no major crashes or heavy impacts.

The bike has always been fully maintained with a full strip and rebuild having taken place last November. This included new suspension bearings, new 142mm rear end to accommodate a bolt in rear axle (this has stiffened the rear triangle significantly).

The headset bearings and bottom bracket are both new.

Suspension wise, the forks have had a lowers service with new seals and mojo replaced a blown FIT damper cartridge with the uprated 2013 unit which gives a broader range of damping. The rear shock unit has also been serviced. The stantions and shock body are both in perfect condition with no signs of scoring.

The wheels have been maintained by Mavic service centre and were fully rebuilt with new spokes and rims under the MP3 extended warranty service.

The reverb seat post has been to SRAM tech UK for a full service and is in good working order.

Other upgrades include an MRP G2 SL chainguide and Bashguard, Easton Havoc handlebars, Easton Haven 55mm stem and is currently on Schwalbe Nobby Nic and Rocket Ron tyres.
