Here's my ride Smile

Lapierre X-Control

Frame: Alloy 7005 Multibutted Hydroformed FPS2, travel 100 mm
Shock: Fox Float RP23
Fork: Fox F120 RL 15mm QR
Headset: Cane Creek seimi-integrated
Wheelset: Hope Hoops Pro3 SP-XC3/Sapim Sprint & Alu nipples/ZTR Crest
Rear QR - Hope
Tyres: Continental X-King 2.2 RS
Crankset: Shimano Deore XT w/ Race Face Single ring 36T & Alu bolts
Bottom bracket: Shimano Deore XT w/ Enduro bearings
Shifter: Shimano Deore XT
Derailleur rear: Shimano Deore XT med.
Chain guide - Superstar XCR
Cassette: Shimano Deore XT 36-11 10 sp.
Chain - Campagnolo Veloce
Brakes: Shimano Deore XT w/ Hope 3-bolt rotors 160/140 mm
Stem: Ritchey WCS OS, 100 mm
Handlebar: Specialized OS, 600 mm
Seatpost: Thomson Elite
Seatclamp: Hope
Sadle: Bontrager InForm RL
Pedals: Shimano Deore XT
Grips: Superstar foams
Housing: Jagwire L3

Weight: 11.1 kg















Plans for the future. Thinking to put Conti MK 2.2 RS tyre. XK is very good universal solution for racing, but for daily trail riding want some more aggressive and confident in front. Also thinking about 10 mm thru axle in rear, 9 cm stem and riser handlebar.
Also want RS Monarch RT3 rear shock. Dual rebound and self service ability is very important to me.
Now put the saddle a little backward and trying some other positions.

Nice bike. Aren't the brake levers a little low though, surely your wrists will be "over" the bars?!

They're about as low as mine are.

Nice clean bike. I like a clean bike. You can then get it dirty and clean it again!

Very nice bike mate.

You levers are in a similar position to mines, very little movement required to reach anything on the bars

Upgraded to XT shadow+, rear 42T cog, rear shock RS Monarch RT3, Tundra saddle, Conti MK tyres and noticed that the frame is only for recycling Smile
