im out in the Alpswith broken commy 55 frame and am trying to get a spicy 916 frame only. IS it possible as can only find full bike on web? what € are frame only going for?

Would the integrated headset and BB come with the frame?

    Lapierre def don't do frames only mate - just asked a mate who works in one of the UKs largest stockists. I know why you want that 916 though - it looks awesome :wink:

    Just a thought but I think (fairly certain) the lower end bikes share the same frame so you could get a 316 (burnt orange shinyness) an transfer your kit then Ebay whats left...

    You aint had that long and its classed has All Mountain?

    This worrys me has I have an All Mountain bike same 5.5 size frame
    and when I had spoken to Orange they told me this would be fine in
    Morzine and I have been watching youtube and I am worried
    the trails look more Patriot type of frame.
    And I have planned a trip out in September.

    The Lapierre looks a good frame but this looks to be only has strong as the
    Commencal/Orange 5
    Best look at a 6 inch bike frame mate.
