by accident i came across the cube web site and i liked what i saw.The cube agree pro really caught my eye then i found out chain reactions sold them.The price of the bikes surprised me.Is this too good to be true does the bike fall apart after 1 year if anyone has one i would love to hear your views on them.The frame components even the colours of the bikes looks first class.I have giant scr2 good bike ,yes but i would like a lighter faster bike and funds are a little tight well very tight.Well i hope that i can get some replies any would be greatly appreciated :oops:

    They do look quite agreeable really.. Except for the fact the all seem to be triples, which I guess is great if u want that.

    I was going to get a Cube but then I discovered Focus.

    Hi Horizon

    I brought a cube Ariel about a month ago. It’s only an entry level bike and my first road bike but I’ve been really happy with it so far. I think cube are definitely worth a look. I think they look pretty smart as well

    Someone I know bought the Agree GTC compact, mainly Ultegra groupset, he loves it.
    Aspire not to have more, but to be more.

    Cube Aerial looks good, similar spec to the SCR2 but lighter and probably some better parts.
    Very good review in C+ last year.

    One other way of doing it Horizon, could be a frame upgrade?? - sounds messy, but your LBS will swap your New one in and everything back together for around £40 quid - I had mine done recently, and the LBS did a perfect job - the bike's like new.

    So rather than spending £1000 - £1300 on a new bike you could get a new lightweight Carbon frame/forks for £450 - £650 quid - always money left over for some nice wheels? - you could always sell your SCR 2 frame/forks on Ebay (£140-£170)

    All just ideas/options really, but migth be worth considering if you don't want to go for a £1000 - £1300 new bike or whatever.

    On the Cube range - seem to have some good bikes, nice details, look great, they'll go from strength to strength.
  • thanks for the replies everyone,nice to know that cube bikes are as good as i thought they might be.I really appreciate everyones reply once again thanks very much. :D

    All the german riders in Mallorca seem to ride Cube bikes. I think they may be supplied by the hire shops, there are that many of them so I suppose they must have a good rep.
