​Im hoping you're joking. Buying a bike worth over a grand that doesn't fit...

Ngl 105 hydro brake hoods are probs the most ugly out there...

But very comfortable.

I've got the sl, which is this bike, but with slightly better wheels and ultegra and they're great bikes.

If you're lucky enough to be the right size you're gonna get a lot of bike for your money!

2017 model which is just a different lick of paint (admittedly beautiful) is £1699. Lots and lots of bike for your money.

I have this bike in a 62cm frame size, during my bike fitting it was discussed how small the frames measure upto others that state they are 58-60cm. I am very pleased with it as I ONLY BOUGHT IT as a cheaper alternative to the De Rosa I have, as I panic when I have to chain it up or leave it somewhere! The Cube Attain is a very nice bike its geared well and is stiff but very comfortable, I would recommend it seasoned riders as well as beginners. Its a great bit of bundled kit and YOU WILL struggle to get better bang for bucks!!

COLD, roadie-bike.

It's been £999 since October. I went for the GTC SL at the time which is pretty much the same but has an Ultegra groupset and a different colour. It's a fantastic bike and, if you want to use it in all weathers, it does take mudguards.

I'm not sure I agree that the frames are small. I'm 6ft 2 and went for the 60cm and have the saddle as low as it will go. Any higher and I'm at full stretch when pedalling or touching the ground. I might have even got away with a 58cm. 62cm would have been way to big for me. I guess it comes down to your own body geometry, not just your height.

surely if you have the seat as low as you can on a 60cm then the 58 is no danger of being too small?

Lovely looking bike.

Nice bike - I have a 2016 GTC Race which is the next one up from this one here and it is very nice bike for the money.

If i had to nitpick though id say hydraulic brakes are a bit of a waste on a carbon bike. Carbon bikes are made to be light and hydraulic brakes can add between 1-1.5Kg to a bike. However if youre bit of a burley looking bloke and do a lot of hill riding then disc brakes pack a little more stopping power.

Disc brakes are also great when youre riding in crappy weather but I never take my carbon bike out on the road if its wet or if i know its going to be raining. I have a aluminum bike which is also my commuter which serves me on crappy days like that.

You don't have to worry about rim wear as well :-)

Is £950 a bit expensive for a bike weighing £9kg? B'twins for this price are lighter...but don't have disc brakes

You'll be surprised how many other popular manufacturers don't disclose the weight of their bikes because they are also on the heavy end of the scale! Weight of a bike means nothing until you are super fit and almost at pro level anyhow! Disc breaks are a must for me ever since going through a muddy puddle then a car pulling out infront of me (you can guess what happened!).

definitely a bonus but it probably wont matter so much if youre rolling with a 'cheap' pair of off the shelf Mavic's that alot of bikes around £600-1500 seem to come with...

The Fulcrum wheels on this bike also fall into this 'cheapo' category as they are rebadged Fulcrum Racing 7 wheels which can be had for very cheap. according to the specs the wheels alone weigh 1750g and thats not even including the tyres.

A great upgrade for this bike first and foremost would be the wheels. Sell the Racing 77's on ebay for £100 or stick them on a bike used for commuting and just ride them into the ground.

I also plumped for a bike with disc brakes... My road bike (fuji sportif) is also my year round commuter...much cheaper than this cube

Its a carbon bike, Carbon bikes always cost more though there are some exceptions to this but quite often the grade/quality of carbon used is the lowest of the low from countries like China

Wheels alone are 1750g -- Tyres weigh in at 230g each - Hydraulic brakes -- 1.0-1.5kg

you can shave off around 2kg if you didnt have the hydraulic brakes and cheapo entry level wheels.


Carbon and Aluminum bikes feel different when ridden so you cant really compare them 1:1

PcTech, you're talking nonsense! There's about 200g difference.

youre forgetting that to use disc brakes you need DISC ROTORS and specific wheel hubs that are made for disc wheels. Quite often the disc wheel hubs can be a little heavier then the standard road bike variant because they need to be strong enough to stand off roading

But by all means. great job on your two mins of googling in a blind attempt to prove me wrong.


maybe you're the one talking nonsense!

I'll quote you - "Hydraulic brakes -- 1.0-1.5kg".

A pair of Shimano BR5800 callipers weigh more than the BR505 hydraulic callipers on the cube. Rotors weigh about 300g for a pair. Let me know where you make up the other kilo.

Fantastic bike for the money, I bought this a couple of months ago from Rutland Cycles for £995 and I'm very happy with it. Its great to ride and you get a lot for your money. I got the 58" and I'm 6'1" and it fits me well.

a direct comparison between non-disc carbon bikes and disc'd carbon bikes.

my attain Race GTC is a good example - Stock it weighs in at 8.1Kg but this bike here weighs 9Kg though the frame is more or less the same. You could say that the 105 groupset is heavier than the ultegra on the Race GTC though the wheels are just a little bit lighter then the Fulcrum 77's

same thing if you were to compare bikes from Giant or any other brand. The only way to 'circumvent' the weight is buy a more expensive carbon bike thats made with a higher quality/grade of carbon fiber, components and lighter wheels.

At least this is what ive seen

I can't remember a time when I thought 'I need stronger brakes' on my road bike. I decend pretty fast too and weigh 75kg. Perhaps worth it for the big lads and lasses but I'd rather save some money and perhaps half a kg. Rim brakes look nicer too.

I specifically wanted hydraulic disc brakes. I hate how when rim brakes are wet, they stop working and you can fit quite wide rubber on this frame, which helps with braking.
They do add some weight, but I don't care. A carbon bike is more about comfort to me, than weight

You're cold and alao an idiot, but can we vote you down too?

Disc brakes on a road bike do make sense. Especially if you want a do it all bike and are happy with the weight penalty of wider tyres. But hydraulics on 25mm tyres don't make much sense to me.

​Cant believe how people pay such little attention to bike fit! Unless you're inbetween sizes, there is only 1 size for you (most of the time).

Changing the saddle height will do nothing to the reach, stack, trail, headtube height, seat angle, headtube angle etc!!!!

(Weight penalty with wider tires means ****all. check out a website called "intheknowcycling" for some very good scientific discussion about tire width.

if they have to ride with seat right down then probably they are in between unless really weirdly built

No, it would mean the 60 is too big...

I bought this bike in a 60, perfect for me at 6'1".
A stunning bike and well specced for the money. I got it for £900 over the bank holiday weekend when you saved £100 when spending £100.

philcurd1977

No, it would mean the 60 is too big...


...and so given the overlap in sizing the 58 is unlikely to be too small?

The 58cm fits me great, I'm 5'10 with a long torso and short legs for my height, my cycling (not trouser) inseam is ~83cm. For someone more normally torso/leg proportioned, it should fit anyone up to ~6'1".

The spec (carbon frame, 105 groupset, br505 "proper" hydraulic brakes, 12mm bolt through axles) for the price is amazing, considering how weak the pound is since last summer's referendum. Had mine almost a week now, I love it, the 202mm very tall headtube on the 58cm frame is great for those of us with back niggles.

If you think you need a smaller frame than a 58cm, Pauls Cycles have the 56cm frame in stock for ~£1k, suitable for those ~5'8" to 5'10" (depending upon your torso/leg proportions and how much of a saddle-bar drop you want).

You don't come across like a scientific discussion can be had with you. But maybe it only looks like you're picking a fight.
But that aside, weight penalty of wider tyres is a fact. Cannot be disputed as such. It may be outweighed by other benefits such as improved traction, cushioning etc. Which is why I tend to stick to 28mm and as wide a rim as I can get away with.
