Summary

Expirience with the Lapierre XRM 8.9

Lapierre XRM 8.9 Review The French team at Lapierre once again show off their flair for sleek designs with the XRM 8.9. The geometry is moderate and makes for a balanced handling. The combination of a long top tube and low stack value will make you sit sporty on the Lapierre Fully. Considering that in the range under 6000 Euro, hardly any other manufacturer makes a better bike for the same specs of wheels. Nice!
