Model preview: 2014 Lapierre Aircode

It seems that everyone needs to have an “aero” bike in their lineup, even though for mere mortals – read: mamils – middle-aged-men-in-lycra – the advantages are minuscule.  But we realize it makes for good post-ride coffeeshop chatter.  Here’s Lapierre’s new aerobike, the Aircode:  obligatory Kamm-tail down tube, faired in front brakes, hidden rear brakes by the bottom bracket, teardrop shape seat tube – all detail touches to streamline airflow better.

Lapierre says you may also get an aero seat post, depending on the model, as shown below on the FDJ team bike (interestingly, it shows a standard brake setup, which the company has yet to confirm which type will be released to the public).  2014-lapierre-aircode-aero-road-bike red blue white ultegra
