Lapierre certainly isn't giving away everything about their all new downhill bike. This duct taped rig was seen at the BDS round in Fort William. We know the bike is completely new and a departure from their PendBox design.

Based on the cables and contraptions, we're guessing there is some suspension data acquisition equipment on the bike, probably similar to what was being used in Cairns below, too.

We're stoked to see more of this rig which will most likely be revealed by the World Cup in Fort William.

    Is it me or does the bike look small?

    I agree looks way small. Or at least, it looks very small for the rider; he looks cramped.

    26" rear and 650B front? Could be just the angles of the tape, but they look dissimilar

    I seriously dont think the duct tape si for a hiding purpose... Maybe they learnt the lesson of not letting that machine get wet in cairns and they just dont want it happening again
