The folks over at Grit CX have given the Libre AL a thorough review and are impressed with the overall versatility of the bike. “The Libre AL has a long reach and higher stance than most gravel bikes, not to mention those wide handlebars, so first impressions are of a very grown-up feeling machine. But it’s not unwieldy. It’s lively thanks to the light carbon front end and the short stem. It’s not preternaturally light, but it has noticeably more giddy-up than an indestructible steel load hauler. And on the descents it’s confident and composed, with the low BB height and high bars giving much less of the “I’m about to do a forward roll on my bike” feeling than a slammed-bar CX racer.”
