Can't decide between these!

Hi All.

First full suss waiting to be ordered...

Am between these 2 as they work in terms of budget, bang for buck and riding I want to do (Mostly trail with some Enduro).

Anyone have any thought on these or have one?

    To be honest I wouldn't have either.
    The Bird Aeris 145 is much better value and a better bike at this price.

    Thanks for the reply. I would love a Bird but would likely finance the bike so hence looking at Tredz. Hence posting the above two.

    Out of interest, what makes you say that the Bird is better value? Its more expensive than both attached and that for the NX version (Have a NX and its not great at all). Also minus a dropper post and a lesser front fork. I appreciate there are some better components but I fail to see the better value. Well, at least that is what I see but may be missing something?

    Having ridden the Bird, I wouldn’t say it is a better bike, it’s reasonably heavy and needs to be ridden fast to get the most out of it....great fun but not as suited to enduro as the 2 you have listed.
  • Last years Cube Stereo 140 has dated geometry, Cube know this as the 2018 version has a brand new frame, longer, lower slacker, to bring it in-line with modern geometry.
