    Lapierre is part of the Accell Group (Raleigh, Diamondback for the US). US Raleigh dealers were encouraged some time back to carry Lapierre road bikes. My understanding is that Lapierre shortly after that pulled out of the U.S. road bike market, so some Raleigh dealers may still have an unloved Lapierre bike or two on the floor or in a box. Call around.

    Thanks wim! Still seeing some Lapierre on the road here in Texas. Do you guys know if there are any dealers in Canada or Mexico?

    I have tried using the dealer locator for anything here in the US but nothing comes up. There are a bunch of dealers in Canada. Thank you for your assistance burgrat!

    in france, lapierre represents a bicycle.

    in the u.s., lapierre represents guns.

    Not sure where Lapierre is going. They may not know themselves. They were pushing their electric-assist mountain bikes, which cost them some credibility with people who don't need no stinking motors.

    They need to take the Lapierres down. None of them are vailable. But perhaps they heard something about a second coming.

    Not for nothin' but I definitely don't consider Lapierre's offerings anything worth going out of your way for. There are plenty of better (subjective, I know) options available in the US no problem.

    I agree. Sometimes people like to get something that no one else rides just for that reason alone. Doesn't always work out well.

    yeah, and even from that angle there are better options. Storck, Time, Cyfac, Parlee, Scapin and on an on. The list of less common brands in the US that are better options than than Laperierre is pretty long.

    My wife has cracked two Lapierre frames and the third which is only just over a year old is starting to turn yellow where the white paint is. Lapierre is very difficult to deal with with warranty issues . Don't waste your money on Lapierre.

    Similar to Orbea, which used to make guns. Odd connection.
