    Last year, if memory serves, the fdjeux boys rode a Lapierre Scandium framed bike, or an Aluminium one. Both of these models have carbon forks, and the Alu one has a carbon rear end- both are predominately white.

    If the Ultimate Carbon is the black full carbon one, I know that some of the team were riding that towards the end of last season, and a few of them are using it in this years tour (Baden in particular uses this one, I think)...

    Which one are you thinking of buying?

    Thanks for your reply, the one I'm on about is the full carbon all black frame but unlike the all carbon frames they have this year their is no series number attached to it like 994,995......and so on, but it dose have the little fdjeux emblem on the top of the forks. The frame looks really good and at $750 U.S. seem like a great deal.
    Anymore info would be great, I see the aus boys are having a hard time this year in the Tour,being Irish myself living in the U.S I'm over the moon to have young Scanlon riding his frist Tour (1st Irish guy riding it in 11years) I rode in races against him back home and he is as strong as a horse,I alway like to se the guy from aus doing well, you never see them crying when the going gets hard.Hope Cooke can pull a stage out some were.

    Try bradleymcgee.com he's the Aus supplier for lapierre. His companies got an email link I think so you could probably ask them directly. Hope that helped.

    Thanks for your reply,

    I checked out his site and had found the link and took a look,there is one that seems to be almost the same. What I would like to know is what people who paid for them think of the frame. Reviews on this frame are so hard to find.
