    Looks nice

    We've not had a 150 through our shop yet, 110's & 130's but no 150's :(

    Great looking bike! Can't wait for mine to arrive! Any niggles with it so far or anything you'd think of upgrading/changing anytime soon?

    Might just be the picture, but the head angle looks steep for a 150mm bike. :?





    Lovely spec list though, the boys at Cube know how to pick parts. :)

    No niggles as of yet only thing im gona change is the fat alberts i dont like them but tyres are a personal thing :wink: tbh no point upgrading anything with full xt and formula the ones what more do you need :)
    I agree head angle is a bit steep and does ride fairly xc but i like that.i would recomend one cracking bike for the money and i know tis still alot of money but the spec is outstanding compared to other brands..

    Ye, totally agree. No need to upgrade!!

    Question about the brakes though. When I was bedding them in, the front started making a noise on application of the brake. It's not a squeaking noise or not so much a rubbing noise. It almost sounds like air in the disc holes escaping after being heated up as it passes through the caliper.

    You experienced any sort of noise like this?

    hi fella the only problem with brakes were that the caliper wasn't square and didnt really notice till i got through set of pads in a week :o but thay were supersoft pads and i should have check it myself even tho it was new.
    a month on and really getting too grips with bike and loves it, thought it didnt climb as good as last bike but had lost bit of fitness now im flying again :lol: hope your enjoying yours..
