  • Yeaa... It´s realy fast and agile. Nice feeling to ride!
    But i think, a bit to heavy. I am planing to get some 1350gr wheels, need to instal tubeless, handlebars are 740mm, i need to cut it to 700mm. Maybe another seat, this one is 220gr, and i dont like it :P
    However its a little bit more work to do.

    But what is good bike without a good Legs ? Nothing right?
    Last year on my old bike i hit about 3.5 K˙s. Not too much becouse of shitty Sommer.
    Over the winter i hit 1.5K˙s interval trenings on my Rollertrainer.
    And ofc I also hit the gym twice a weak, doing upper body,back and legs realy hard.
    Well this is result:

    I am selling my old bike. Then i would like to buy new wheels and instal tubeless. I hope my bike is then under 10kg.
  • New tire on the back :D
    Continental X-King 2.2
    Its a bit thinner then Schwalbe Thunder Burt, but is way much more grip on mud.

    Those legs are crazy
    Constantly trying to upgrade my parts.It is a long road ahead as things are so expensive for little gain. n+1 is always the principle in my mind.

    Did you have to resurrect the thread for that?!

    Have you got the wheels yet OP? What did you go for at 1350g, that's tickling 'ultra light' for 29er clinchers!

    This thread needs a warning. Especially with those veins.
  • Hey

    Amazing bicycle. I am looking to buy that one too and since I am doing my research now, I am wondering if it would be possible to install a drop post with inner cable routed inside seat tube along to bb and then along brake hose up to handle bar ? Do you think that would be possible ? I know some cube frames have "stealth ready" technology, any chance you could help me find that out ?? Thanks!
  • Hi PiranhaXc

    Awesome bike. Great to read your thoughts on it!

    How's it still going?

    I am thinking of buying this bike in the 21" version that you have. A lbr has one left in this size on sale. But I can't get there any time soon.

    What is your height and inside leg?

    My height is 181 cm and 85cm inside leg. So with the inside leg measurement on cube website I suit a 19.5 inch frame.

    Do you think if I shortened the stem to 60-80mm I could make it fit?

    Just want to find out how it fits you with your height and legs.

    Cheer mate,

    Tim
