2011 Cube Attempt.

Really pleased with it and well specced for a grand. My best bike is a Cube Agree GTC SL but this isn't far off.

    105 Groupset and brakes, Ultremo ZX tyres, Fulcrum 7 Custom wheels. Saddle has been swapped for a Fizik Arione, and a 12-27 cassette added, but other than that it's as it comes.
  • no mudguards for a bad weather bike?! suppose it would spoil the looks! ;)

    I only commute a couple of days a week tops as I need my car. It's 23 miles each way and due to not having great shower facilities I only tend to do it on dry days. I only really do it for training purposes and it allows more free time at home with the family rather than being stuck on the turbo. It's essentially a winter training bike.

    Here's my best bike

    Is it just the angle both photos are taken at or do you have your saddles nose-up?
    More problems but still living....

    oh i see, guess there's no point in the guards then!

    as for your best bike...that is a thing of beauty :P

    Bit of a thread necro I know, but to the OP, how's the ride on the Cube Attempt? I'm looking at choosing either that or a Felt F75.

    I haven't used my Attempt enough to give you an honest opinion but so far it's been pretty good. Just got back from a couple of weeks abroad and will probably start using it a bit more from here on. I have swapped the tyres for some 25mm Continental Gaterskins though, ready for the bad weather rides.

    Also off to the Alps with the Agree next month for a week.
