    Good idea to do some test rides to actually see and ride the bikes. They may be too race orientated or too comfortable.

    Totally agree I would never buy a bike without getting my leg over, I cannot believe people would just buy one on recommendation.
    I also mountain bike (Hangs head in shame) and nearly bought the orange five, highly rated, took one out, absolutely hated it, felt like a tank. Test drove a Zesty a world of difference.
    Its a costly mistake to make !

    P.S Cube bikes seem to be everywhere, so you might be able to test one locally.
    Just Kidding !

    I never mentioned that he wasn't going to try it first ( Which of course he is) think of this thread as market research as I'm just trying to find what's out there for a grand that he can take a gander at and then swing his leg over should he like what he see's :D
