I'm new to this forum. I am looking for a new mountain bike after not cycling for about 5 years. Have limited my search to the above two bikes. What do you guys thinK?



  • Test them to see which one feels better. I went for the Cube - I like the light frontend and xc geometry. Comfortable for my stumpy legs and long body.
    However my mate cant stand it - horses for courses!

    2012 Cube Ltd SL (the hardtail XC 26er)
    2014 Lapierre Zesty TR 329 (the full-sus 29er)

    I have a cube race 2010 and having had a attention understand the difference in speed that the race can offer. It is a very unforgiving bike on the trials but push it hard and it will make you smile. It is very hardcore.
