I was lucky enough to pick up these two last week from Epic cycles, never had real high end bikes before, they are works of art, bloody love them, not even had chance to ride the Aerolight yet but the 675 ride is just amazing compared to what I'm use to, I've only had Cubes before now, the ride is just sooo good, can't wait to try get out on the Aerolight when I get a decent day off, look forward to any comments guys :D

    Wow .. Really nice looking bikes.... ''Memo to self.... Start doing the lottery again'

    Is that carpet in the garage ? :evil:

    Beautiful bikes, I picked up a standard 675 (2013) in black and yellow at Christmas. It was more than wanted to spend but I could not resist,I have yet to ride it :D. I know the rule is n+1 but why 2 bikes at the same time.

    Wow! Awesome
  • i have the original 675 with ultegra and kysirium wheels beautiful bikes and twitchy which is awesome. the 795 is beautiful but why two high end road bikes?
  • nicubenicube Posts: 175
    Yeah garaged is carpeted, I'm a bit of a petrol head and have a Megane Renaultsport that I keep pristine and she lives in there with my bikes.

    I had the cash for the 795 and ordered it and had bought a Cube Agree GTC over the winter but just wasn't happy with the quality so sold it and managed to stretch to the 675 too, so 795 is purely dry days and 675 for every other ride bar commuting or that's the plan, I have a Cube Peloton for work as I wouldn't dream of taking anything this valuable to work!

    I think my 10 year old daughter would describe me as being "well jel".....

    Lovely bikes.

    I don't like it in this color, the handlebars look so much bigger than Look's normal color (the once teams use), it looks like a giraffe! I do love the idea of the bike and i even like it in the team colors!

    I too am " well jel " :D

    Great bikes. Shame about the Renault.

  • If they're both for you they look like they're set up slightly differently, in that the 3T 'bars on the second bike look narrower. Which in my books is better. Narrow is aero.

    Now it's time for sleep.

    I'm sure they ride well but I much prefer the classic lines of the old 595 Ultra. In fact I am just a big stick in the mud about the appearance of bikes...

    Must be the photos as both bars are identical widths :wink:

    Tis nice that's for sure. I was looking at one of these yesterday. Though I have a soft spot for the Cupra, judging by early reports over on SCN I'm wondering if even a Renault would be more reliable :wink:

  • Is the tread on the front wheels of those two bikes supposed to be facing the opposite way to the rears or has the shop put the wheels the wrong way round in the forks?

    Nice bikes though!

    I noticed that and meant to check the rotation indicators but keep forgetting, anyone advise??

    Since you've reminded me I've just checked them, no rotational indicators on the tyres so did some digging, different tyres front and rear, fronts are Mavic Yksion pro griplink and rears are Mavic Yksion pro powerlink apparently designed to be like that, obviously Epic cycles know what they're doing :mrgreen:
