Cracking deal on this bike £600 off as it's last years model.

Ready for the cold votes and the I can buy a car for that amount comments. However, this is a great spec bike for the price.

Spec

The super lightweight carbon fibre frame comes with internal cable routing and ready to race Ultegra components. The Gran Tourismo Modular Monocoque Carbon Fibre Frame features full carbon bearing housings and all details are weight and stiffness focused. Hybrid Cable Routing gives a clean look and great function.
Mechanical or electronic transmission components can be mounted without compromises. The tapered steerer delivers optimum stiffness and a better distribution of forces. The RFR geometry with relaxed and comfortable riding position makes riding out of saddle easy and gives agile handling. Oversized carbon tubes for the main frame and chainstays deliver maximum stiffness and the best strength to weight ratio. Thin seat stays and a flat top tube give flex for comfort. The Easton EA 50 Aero clincher wheels are lightweight and aerodynamic. The Easton EA 30 is light handlebar with a wing shape for a comfortable hand position and optimum ergonomics.

Shame I'm 6"2 and skint!

Evans have an ex display trek madone 3.5 58cm half price online if you want a road bike under a grand it's a steal.

Nice bike. Just bought the madone 3.5 ^^

Sounds like a great deal on the Trek. I have an aluminium trek as my winter bike and it's great!

You should be paying at least this for a bike. My mate rides Cube and can not reccomend them enough.

I have a cube gtc mountain bike and they are incredible value even at RRP. High quality, great specs and good looks!

bargain. get one!

bargain

nice spec. Great bikes - I have a Cube Ltd SL mountain bike, solid German no fuss style build quality

great deal for ultegra/105 and full carbon. would love one with di2 for this price..........wishful thinking

Nice spec & good price.

good value, heat added

jealous of the madone 3.5 though.. my old 2.1 got stolen, have a giant tcr sl2 now, more than i need, but there is always room for bike envy though

I had one of these until a nice driver decided to run me over and wrote it off, I can easily say it was the nicest bike I have ever ridden.

I has no monies.

Really versatile - will go quick on the flats but has a triple ring for slow hill climbs.

Views on this vs. the Planet X Pro Carbon Shimano Ultegra? I was (and am still swaying to) the Planet X as I'm not doing anymore sportives or triathlons on a hybrid!

Bargain price for this set up.

Got the same bike in black and blue with the Tiagra set up, from my local shop a few months ago for a little bit cheaper than this

For these components its a no brainer, its a bargain.

Love my Cube bike.

I too was looking at the Planet X pro carbon until I saw this. In my view this is a better bike with better wheels, internal cable routing and a better finishing kit!

shame it is in white.

Not many left, and only a 56" frame, but this and the Planet X are worlds apart in terms of the kit.

If 56 is your size, buy now! I can't see a better bargain than this coming along for a while.

what he said! if you're a 56cm frame. this is a steal.

Nice bike. It also has a triple rather than a compact. Not for me, but on this gearing, it should make most hills more doable if you are out of shape.

Hot deal.

I don't think it does, the image shows a triple but the title and specs say compact. But the specs do also say it has 3 x 10 speed brakes... So who knows

Shame I'm 6"2 and skint!

same here!

Great deal, the triple would put me off but still great value for money if you are happy with a triple.

I was just looking at bike yesterday...would someone be able to tell me if this is better than a Giant Composite?

It's confusing about a triple as the title on the website says compact but the spec says 3x10.

I will let you all know when mine arrives on Monday! :-) can't wait!

great deal for ultegra/105 and full carbon



especially when the shifters are Ultegra (nice carbon lever blades), they usually upgrade the mechs and downspec the more expensive shifters. Spec a bit confusing but I think as its the "Race" it will be a compact double not triple.

I paid £1K for alloy and 105 2 years ago, this is a bargain (now got full carbon full ultegra though (_;) )

Cracking deal, check the frame geometry as height is not the most accurate barometer of bike size, so this could suit a 6' cyclist too.

Be careful with Cube road bikes. I'm a six footer and my trek was a 58, which was perfect . My cube agree GTC SL is a 60. Cubes come up a size smaller than specified, check the top tube dimensions. A 56 would really be a 54.

The Giant bikes have excellent frames and are very well liked by the press and deservedly so.
Can't remember if the tcr is a racer orientated frame or the defy? The GTC is very much a sportive machine so very comfy. I'm getting not a supple young thing anymore and my GTC suits my weary body vey well.

Interesting point - the spec states a compact chainset at 50 x 34 t, and the photo clearly shows a triple... imho, it is a shame on a bike so promising that the manufacturers still insist on putting compact / triples on them. Heat added nevertheless... and guess the clue was in the name.. regarding compact... oO

Spending 1k on a piece of metal with tiny wheels attached is a bit silly.





I've got the GTC Pro of this bike, and it's fantastic.

The none-series shimano crankset is a triple on mine (maybe a double compact is available), so I might suggest this bike is gonna be a triple too.

P.S. Triple's are great! 30x25 will get you up anything.

Which Cube is the higher spec. the RACE or the PRO ? thanks

Order is as follows:-

GTC
GTC Pro
GTC Race
GTC SL and GTC SLT

Thanks

Going to weigh in on the double vs triple debate...

If you check the ratios, generally most doubles and triples share the same (or very close) low and high ratios. You get fewer gears with the double, but IMHO, the riding is easier. Just remember to crack on 2-3 higher on the cassette whenever you shift down on the front to maintain the ratios.

I would take a double in the UK any time. Triple may have done advantages if you want to achieve a very fast downhill speed (like 35+) by during a large front ring, but that's not for most people.

Good offer,shame only 56cm left
