Hi all,

This is my second post here, so please be kind :D

It is a Cube AMS 100 (bought in 2010) – thought as a replacement for my old MTB hardtail. It has performed extremely well – either on single trails or during heavy climbing (the easy-to-use lockouts help a lot). So here it is:


Frame: Cube AMS 100/ Alu, FSP 4-Link-System
Fork: Rock Shox REBA RL (set to 120 mm), lockout
Shock: Fox RP23 shock size 165mm, lockout

Crankset: Shimano Deore XT
Pedals: Shimano PD-M520 (on the pic are the previously fitted basic pedals)
Shifters: SRAM X0 Trigger 9 speed
Front/ Rear Derailleur: SRAM X9

Brakes: Formula R1, Hydraulic Disc Brakes (180/180)
Wheels: DT Swiss XPW1600 (Note: Cube OEM, not available from DT, but more of an equivalent to PW 1800, as I understood :? )
Tyres: Schwalbe Rocket Ron (front), Schwalbe Racing Ralph Kevlar (rear)

Weight: 12,3 kg (the bike leaflet claimed 11,2 kg, but I suppose this might be the prototype with papermache frame :-)

Enjoy :D

    Looks good, nice spec too.very nice
  • How do do you get on with the bike nice to ride? Thinking about getting one myself what do you use it for terrain wise.
  • I ride mainly on forest roads (single track), surface soil, some stones, fairly dry. Some passages are also done on 4th grade tarmac roads (steep climbings) - but these make up 30% max.

    The bicycle is just as good company as most husbands and, when it gets old and shabby, a woman can dispose of it and get a new one without shocking the entire community. - Ann Strong

    I have the same bike but the 2012 version. Can the fork be set to 120mm without voiding the warranty?
