Decent price for an awesome bike.

Bike is £499
Delivery is £15
TOTAL - £514

Shimano SORA groupset. Ok not going to do the Tour de France with one that, but still decent. Got some decent features when you consider this is an entry-level bike. Very light.

CUBE are really good, had mine for a while now. German build quality and they look far more expensive than they are. Love the wet paint look on the frame.

Worth remembering that Cube bikes are smaller than usual, so you might have to go up a size (or two). Usually a 58cm but I needed a 62cm on the CUBE.

53 CM - In Stock
56 CM - In Stock
58 CM - In Stock
60 CM - In Stock
62 CM - In Stock

Delivery is £15. They're are advising 3 day backlog, well it is the Tour de France so imagine most bike shops will be busy.

Lovely bike for the money. I've had a Peloton SL for the last two and a half years and it's been superb. That's got better gearset and flight deck but the frame is the same and it handles a treat. Highly recommend Cube road bikes.

Entry level for £514? something is very wrong. I started with a £50 tesco bike moved up and now do 22 miles a day on a Merida which I bought for £275 second hand.
Why people are brand loyal I would expect much more for £514.

Very basic groupset for the money - Winstanley Bikes had the Pro version with Tiagra for the same I think a few months back, and yes, I know that's no good now but the point is if you're not desperate to buy right now you can get much better deals. Plus, and slate me all you want, Cube bikes are overpriced compared to the 'lesser' brands like Planet X and Ribble - you just get more for your money elsewhere.
#17
Nice find OP. As I haven't got a time machine to go back for the Pro version with Tiagra and would prefer a brand like Cube over ribble or planet x this is a very good deal. Don't take any notice of the trolls on here.

I know its more but for the spec and the fact you can customise this is a far better bet if you are looking to spend £500+

Yes I fully expect to be shot down, but I'll also be looking for a sale bargain in Jan/Feb next year

How am I 'trolling' or is posting useful information that may offend some touchy people trolling now? Read any bike forum and you'll see Cube bikes are regarded as flashy and overpriced, there's nothing wrong with it and some people will like that but I'd take a better groupset.

I think my comment is justified as most people research their bikes before purchasing and don't just see a deal then go and buy, plus at the height of summer it's possibly the worst time to buy unless you are absolutely desperate for a bike right now. Out of season you will save substantial money.

I have a Cube mountain bike and a Ribble road bike. Both are excellent brands and Ribble offers great value for money. For a bit extra the carbon frame Cube Agree gtc is available for £799 with Tiagra group set. Not a great deal as such as it's widely available but great value for money.

The Agree is an excellent frame and given it's £799 normally, it makes you wonder why this Peloton apparently has a RRP £750 for an aluminium frame and groupset down. I suppose it's down to what you can and want to afford, I wouldn't spend much more than £1k but have many friends who spend more than an average family spends on a car!

For the record, there's nothing wrong with Cube bikes, just not for me and I guess like anything it can incite rivalry just like phones and cars.

There was a Chain Reaction Vitus Razor road bike on here a month or so ago for £375, surprised it didn't get hotter but is available again in all sizes http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/vitus-bikes-razor-road-bike-2014/rp-prod107022
IMO better than the Triban Red of last year (still has carbon forks but also has the new Claris shifters which lose the annoying thumbshifters) so arguably a better "entry level" bike than this one. Free delivery too.

Dam it's so expensive, I and it's only entry level, I can buy a car for that money

Better of with a Canyon Aeroad or SLX for that money.

Not even close to "that money" though. Cheapest option is over £2,000.

Less than 4x the price... pretty similar.

Look at it another way, it's like buying 4 baguettes instead of 1.

Looks decent this - carbon forks an sub 10kg. Is it a decent buy then for a beginner?

Just popped to my local bike shop who stock Cube to check this bike out.....or used to.

Apparently although the mountain bikes were excellent, they had too many warrantee claims on the Cube road bikes so decided to stop stocking Cube altogether. We're talking frames snapping here, so pretty serious issues.

Convinced me that it wasn't such a good deal after all. Cube have always had amazing component levels for the price but its no good if the frames aren't up to much as that's the bit you keep the longest!

On paper looks like it, would certainly consider it if I hadn't bought a Triban last year, I find the thumbshifters too annying and will likely just upgrade to the Claris shifters on it once I can find a decent deal on them, but they seem to be not much cheaper than deals you can get Tiagra on, although that would mean then upgrading the chain, cassette and derailleurs!

one. Free delivery too.

So is it worth the extra £45 to get the vr model and get sora rather than Claris?

If that's the only difference then probably not, Claris is really just 8 speed Sora, can't really see that an extra gear makes too much difference, gear systems have become a bit of a joke, like multiblade razors etc in last decade! New sysems are not 11speed, couple of years time it'll probably be, ahem 12 speed?

I got mine yesterday. Makes a huge difference over my MTB. Seat is a bit in the skinny and hard side.

May try and swap that out to a wider charge spoon after a few more rides if my behind is still sore

Don't change the seat mate. Give it a couple of rides and your **** will be broken in. (Oh matron).
Get yourself some decent shorts/tights with a good quality gel chamois in the bum too.

It's too skinny my sit bones are about 115mm so add 25 - 30 mm that's 140-145mm the selle Italia is 120mm so is too small changed to my old seat much better with wider seat
