    I've been experimenting with different saddle positions, it has changed many times since the one in the photo. Still not 100% happy though :?

    Just ordered a compact one of these today, as a winter bike.

    Already have the Cube Agree GTC SL and they are cracking bikes for the money. Swapped the saddle and cassette and stuck Look Keos on it. A slightly more upright position than the GTC.

    I'm a huge Cube fan - currently on my second Aerial (which I think is a better frame geometry than the Attempt) and also lucky enough to own a carbon Litening with Ultegra and Fulcrum 3 wheelset - a truly stunning bike for the money.

    AND...(this was important) I had a problem with my first Litening frame, which was cracked behind the front mech - a tiny tiny crack that I didn't notice until 6 months after I bought it. The shop I bought it from had closed (it changed from a bike shop to a runing/tri shop) and no longer had a Cube franchise.So I contacted Cube directly, got to meet Mr Dan White, their UK Marketing Manager, who not only replaced and refitted the frame but upgraded it to the latest model at no cost whatsoever. Absolutely first-class customer service. Also helped by the excellent dudes at Prologue Bikes in East Sheen, who fitted the bike out for me even though they'd never sold the bike to me in the first place.

    Great product, great spec and great Customer Service - and I do NOT work for Cube!!

    Honest!!
