Thanks for the insight into your settings. My bike is the Zesty 827 AM carbon 2017, so a very similar set up to yours. I weigh about the same with riding kit so it is a good comparison.

Currently I am running 56psi with one volume spacer up front on my Pike. It sits up well and takes the hits whilst still feeling responsive in the lower third of the stroke.

My rear shock is the Rockshox Monarch RT3 Debonair Relay. I have found it too linear and dead feeling so have recently added 6 volume spacers all in the positive chamber. It now feels much more supportive and although I can use all the travel it feels much better matched to my fork. I am running 200 psi. My sag is around 30 - 35% also. I'm not sure there is any way past this as higher pressures don't seem to reduce it much. Could be a function of the compression curve through the suspension.

With these settings the bike is running the best that it ever has. The only improvements now will be the debonair upgrade on the fork, possibly an offset headset to get more angle at the front, and to get my E:I working again of course.

Woa. Just upgrade my fork to 160mm with the debonair kit. Should have done this a long time ago. Small bump sensitivity is much better and with the slightly higher fork the steering is a little more dialed back, less twitchy in the turns. Really liking the change.

You have probably already figured this out, but there is a very small allen bolt that holds the axle bolt firm and prevents it from spinning. Look for a small hole just above the rear mech bolt, stick an allen key (cant remember the size) in it and tighten it up...

I have a 2016 527... I had lots of issues with the rear axle, until I switched to a DT Swiss ratchet. It's basically a solid thru that has a ratchet mechanism that pops off once tightened. All the traditional tightening lever systems failed.

Still loving this bike. Other than typical drivetrain maintenance, it's been bulletproof. Hoping it stays that way with Lapierre pulling out of the North American market after '16 models.

Hi all, I have a 2015 zesty 427 e:i frame with shock. It's surplus to requirements and was wondering what it's worth ?
It was purchased new in 2016 as an end of model bike, it was used up to about July 2018, when lapierre replaced the frame under warranty for a 2016 model due to a little wear in the rear pivot bushes. I've had the pivots machined true and new bushes fitted by an engineering shop, so the frame still has life in it yet ! I should still have all the sensors and wiring for the e:i system too.
So what's it worth, if anything ?
Cheers in advance for your opinions!

Bicycle Blue Boook says roughly $1,200 in good condition... take that with a grain of salt. I find it's usually on the low end.

Depends on the market really. Lapierre pulled out of the US market in 2016, so they can be found way below book value here.

Hi all . Am after some Lapierre knowledge, specifically for a 2015 zesty 827. I am having issues replacing the rear brake . Have basic brm615 shimano that died.... replaced with brm6000 that I have now discovered do NOT fit , they hit part of the swingarm .

Does anyone know for sure what I can put there ?
