  • One of my local routes I regularly see a dude on a stereo hauling censored up the climbs, and normally end up seeing him later on out in the single track, and the bike always looks so poised no matter situation it is. I've been wanting one a while, but saving doesn't go down well with me :(

    Lovely bike mate!
  • Incredible looking bike and lovely spec.

    i've always really liked cube. they look awesome and ride as well as they look!
  • Thanks for all your comments, pictures don't really do it justice if I am honest.
    Took it out this morning for a couple of hours across the malverns, very very nice to ride, quite suprised at its climbing ability when propedal is off.
    Bit more fettling with the forks before I am happy, they do have quite a lot of stiction so I am struggling to set them up properly.
    Otherwise very happy 8)

    I would angle the front of the seat down a tad though :)

    you need to bed the forks in. a few more rides and they'll be at their best.
