Well its taken a little longer to get settled in to the newly refurbished shop than we thought, tweaking layouts and deciding where to hang products up has extended the process. We are now pretty happy with how things are in the limited space that we have, we think that we have squeezed in about as much as we can without making it too cramped.
Talking of which the new 2012 Lapierre bike stock is coming in gradually, filling up the shop nicely and giving customers choice over which type and size of bike suits them. We’ve currently got 2 different models of the Shaper which is the fast commuter bike which can be fitted with full length ‘guards and a rack, and 2 of the Audacio road bike which has been praised in a recent reveiw. You can read more about it here: http://www.bikeradar.com/gear/category/bikes/road/product/review-lapierre-audacio-400-db-11-43525.
We also have a ladies Zesty that belongs to Becci, and its usually in the shop so if you want a peek pop in. The Zesty looks lovely but rides even better, Becci only had it for a couple of days and decided to do a bit of immediate colour coordination on it. Lapierre do a range of special ‘coloured bits’ so she added some nice red cable guides, a lovely red seatpost clamp, some crud catchers, WTB Moto X grips with red anodised lock ons and some acid red DMR V8 pedals! You can have a look at it on our Facebook page for immediate gratification!
Oh I forgot to mention if you don’t know about the Zesty its a full suspension super bike with rave reviews, have a look here http://www.bikeradar.com/gear/category/bikes/mountain/product/review-lapierre-zesty-314-l11-41164
