    Speedplay pedals look rediculous on a bike.

    SOO small - tho they get a lot of attention.

    Ride great though!

    No probs - we can't all have nice houses with garages, I certainly don't!

    How's the frame? A lot of interest around them as they are available for about 300 quid direct from the manufacturer.

    I've heard this mentioned before but I'm not sure it's right. The geometries don't match up at all, looking at the FM015 and FM028? Have I missed something?

    I've got a Greatkeen FM028 and to my knowledge it isn't a Cube.

    Nice bike. Is any part of it not made in the Far East?

    Gorgeous mate! Almost got one myself when I was buying my new bike! Was eyeing up the green speedplays too ;) How does it ride?
  • Haven't heard of the chinese frames until now, but didn't check it out in the first place so can't really offer anything to that topic. First carbon frame I have owned (other bike was a trek 1.2) and I love it.

    How can one student afford a DA equipped bike when another is looking for cheap meat and trying to reduce laundry costs?

    :? :lol:

    Had to go for green, any other colour would have been wrong!
    Pretty obsessed with it at the moment, it rides like a dream in my opinion. Can't really fault a thing about it, but like i said its the best bike I have read so cannot compare it to similar bikes. But compared to my trek 1.2 just about everything is better (expected I know with the prie difference!)

    You need to give Freehub a lesson in student living!

    I also have the 2010 model and it is brilliant. Also upgraded from Trek 1.2 which I thought was good, but the Cube is whole other level.

    beautiful bike congrats!

    I have the 2010 version of the Agree SL. Basically the same frame geometry but in Alloy with full Ultegra kit and Easton Vista SL wheels.

    It is a speed demon compared to the Cannondale MTB that i switched from.

    Only problem i am facing is probably self inflicted. I have been washing her down with turtle car wash. Rust has begun showing on the spokes. Had a spoke snap last week.

    Sorry about the off topic: After riding the alloy version of the same bike for 5 months and over 1500kms, I would jump at the opportunity to upgrade to a Agree carbon frame, can you guide me on where or how to contact them or get them?

    I also have the SL and it's identical to the original poster, although I swapped the cassette to 12-27, added Keo Carbon pedals and have just added some nice Real Design Supersonic 60 carbon clinchers.

    I also have the Attempt as a bad weather bike.

    Can we have some pictures Sampras38?? I am just setting up my 2010 Cube Agree GTC SL with some 50mm carbon clinchers so am interested how the 2011 looks.

    No worries, I'll try and get some up by the end of the week.

    That doesn't look like the student accommodation my son's living in. For a start you can see the carpet, and there's nothing growing on the walls.
