    Hey there,
    I own a 2010 Lapierre Sensium. Bought it earlier this year and have almost 5000 km's on it. Absolutely love it. Feel free to contact me if you want any specific info. I've been on the road since April 1 and have yet to see another Lapierre. You see Cervelo's everyday. Having said that the RS is a great bike and was on my shortlist too. Good luck

    I don't know a lot about each frame, but considering the Lapierre has better components *and* is less money, I can't imagine going with the Cervelo. On a side note, I can't imagine the shop is making any money on that Lapierre, that's over 50% off, they're probably taking a loss on it.

    They do have similar geometry in the HT and chainstays, so I can see why you'd like them about the same. I'd bet that the Cervelo has a stiffer bottom bracket, but the Lapierre has a higher component group. I think you're getting a great bike either way you choose.
