Cube, Specialized or Lapierre

Postby Cerysdad » 22 Jun 2020, 1:53pm

My cycle to work scheme loc has eventually arrived. My first and second choices for a bike are not available in my size currently:

Cube Attain sl disc (Disc brakes) £1,199

Specialized Allez Elite £1049 (Bike Radars bike of the year)

The Lapierre Sensium 500 2019 is available now but I can find out very little about it. The first 2 "might" be available by September. Wondering if anyone knows much about the Lapierre.

Was this a stupid question or is it just that no-one has an opinion?

Other than FDJ ride this brand as team bikes I know nothing of these bikes. I would not be surprised if most on here didn't even know that. Perhaps try the Bike Radar forum?

I’d go with the Specialized. They are highly regarded and good value for money, IMO, but then I’m a rim brake kind of bloke.

Thanks for the advice. The Lapierre is sold out anyway. There's another hitch with the loc ... over 3 weeks now and was definitely due on Monday... seems never-ending. Absolutely sorted by today apparently. I won't hold my breath.
