Cube Reaction GTC Race and Access WLS GTC

Had these delivered from bike-discount.de a couple of weeks ago and am absolutely loving them! Not had a chance to do any serious off road yet with work commitments etc but I'm managing to get out for at least 5 or 6 miles every other day.

It feels light, goes where I point it remarkably well and generally covers a lot of ground very quickly. The SRAM components are really nice and work flawlessly - my first experience of a non-shimano group set!

I added the XT SPDs and am more than happy with them for weight and ease of use. The extra platform makes riding with flat shoes bearable for short distances and clipping in feels easier and the larger contact area makes a surprising amount of difference to peddling.

I also bought a Access WLS GTC for the wife which is equally nice and the pair of them look great together!

Anyway, here's a random selection of the pics I've taken so far...

    Very nice cubes you have there,
    Was after getting one of those gtc but got offered a trek at a good price so went for that instead,
