Cube Agree GTC Triple or Compact Carbon Fibre / Tiagra Road Bike - Chain Reaction Cycles - £869 - 10% = 791.10 + 2.5% possible Quidco

Found 1st Apr 2014
Chain Reaction have 10% off their sale price of £869 (triple chainset) or £879 (compact chainset) using code BIKE10, plus a potential extra 2.5% Quidco. This brings the price down to 791.01, which is 37% off the original £1250 cost, with another ~£16 cashback.

The Cube Agree GTC is a well reviewed carbon framed road bike with full Shimano Tiagra groupset and Shimano R501 wheels. See roadcyclinguk.com/gea…tml "Shouldn’t every £1250 bike be as good as the Cube Agree GTC?" and cyclingweekly.co.uk/rev…gtc "9/10" for reviews. I have had the similar but higher spec GTC SLT for month or two, and it is a great ride.

Currently available with top-tube sizes 56, 58 and 60 cm (triple) and 56 and 58 cm (compact). I'm 184 cm tall, and the 58 cm is bang on for me, people tend to recommend choosing slightly larger than would be normal for Cube Agree frames.

Nice, thanks

back in the 60s we built our own bikes from individual parts to get best kit. just for the hell of it I built one with a fiorelli frame, campagnolo derailleur 6 speed and triple clanger front which I think was 52 49 46 trusting to memory, but the weird bit was I had a 4 speed sturmey archer rear hub gear on it - so 72 speed gears. why on earth did I get rid? oh yes, I grew up and got a lambretta gt200...

Wish my cycle to work scheme wasn't affiliated With halfords

Would be £15 a month for 3 years... Bargain

I've got this bike. Its fantastic. I went for the triple for cycling in the Pyrenees. Otherwise, you don't really need it but at that price, I wouldn't turn my nose up at it!

this is expensive than the worth of my car... haven't voted

Still got the TV200? I'll swap you this bike for it!

If you can stretch an extra few hundred quid I'd personally go for something from planet x

I've got a Planet X. In fairness you do get Ultegra 6700 with the PX bike. A matter of personal preference I'd say though given that you can get full carbon bikes for £1500+ that have 105 groupsets.

Some Local Bike shops take Halfords Vouchers (such as Primera sports in Bournemouth). Not sure how they do it but I got a speccy from them using my halfords voucher, no naf apollo for me #win

My car has three pedals. This bike on the other hand has none from what I can see in the pictures and description.

superb price, was looking at this last year when it was over a grand. bargain at this price

Nice deal for a carbon frame and Tiagra 10

Your english skills could have something to do with that

You would need to be an athlete to ride a bike of this sort.

Now if it came in black with no branding... The last thing you want on a bike used for commuting is a price tag visible 100 feet away.

Isn't it about time these elitist cyclists who think buying a expensive bike makes them special started to pay Road tax, they already think they own the roads so why not charge them

CULT THE ELITIST NAZI CYCLISTS! THEY MUST BE STOPPED! Be quiet please, its an investment, a nice hobby for some and a lot of drivers are just as bad.

Isn't time these drivers on the roads thinking roads are just for cars start paying road tax! O wait yeah that's it there is no such thing as road tax!

You pay VED which is based on emissions as cyclists have no emissions they don't pay it! Neither to cars with very low emissions like Smart Cars. Be informed before you make comments like that!

aberfal please try harder. You don't pay road tax. There is no such thing. I pay a VEHICLE tax on my car and on my motorbike, based on emissions and engine size.

Obvious troll is obvious. And really unoriginal, and not funny.

Baldude you have a valid point which is that the price of this bicycle is a complete joke.

It's definitely not a deal by any means. There are bicycles in halfords for a fraction of the cost which do the same thing which is travel forwards when you pedal. I've had a mountain bike from halfords for a long, long time use it every other day and nothing wrong with it.

People who buy these need their head examined.

Voted cold.

You don't need to be an "elitist" to buy and enjoy a bike like this. As for expensive:

Fuel = 20p/mile average

5 miles to work = £500 per year
10 miles to work = £1000 per year
20 miles to work = £2000 per year (you'd want a light fast bike if doing this sort of mileage)

Add wear and tear to car on top of that. As most will want to keep their car, other costs are not used in comparison.

Not to mention money saved on the gym membership you never used anyway.

where do you ride these? Can they be ridden on the public roads?

How many miles is each journey and do you ride on the road, or like most cheap mountain bikers are you terrorising pedestrians?

Fair enough if you voted cold, this deal obviously isn't for you. For many people this is a lot to spend on a bike. For plenty of others, who are enthusiastic enough about cycling to want a bike that is better than the minimum required this is an excellent deal. I think virtually anything on this site that is more expensive than the bare minimum you could pay is ripe for the same comments. If you're not willing to allow people to have interests and enthusiasms beyond just getting the absolute cheapest of any essential item, whether it be food, wine, phones, computer equipment, holidays, cars and whatever else is popular here, including bikes, then feel free to vote cold on them all (_;)

I don't understand. Most people get the difference between a Rover 25 and a Mercedes. I'd also say most people understand that just because they are both cars, doesn't mean that the Mercedes is necessarily a rip off because they can get a Rover 25 for a fraction of the price.

Same thing goes for bikes, cameras, computer hardware, cooking utensils, practically anything you can buy.

You cannot get a bike of this quality for the same price in Halfords, and if you think someone who enjoys road cycling will get as much enjoyment out of a £200 Halfords bike as this bike, then you're deluded.

Back on topic. I got the compact from JE James Cycles less than a month ago for £750 delivered. And I absolutely love it.

very decent bike for the price....if we get a summer like last year it'll be a great investment.

What are you talking about my Grandma could ride this.

furbix

Yes this bike prefers roads, I have the compact agree and it's lovely.

just buy a mountain bike.then you can go on road and offroad.roads bikes are dangerous we have worst roads in country.

This is a deal. I appreciate that some people won't see it as one when you can pick up a bike from Halfords for a fraction of the cost. But Cube are a very good make and produce great frames. The Groupset could be better but for a full carbon frame it is a very good deal.

For those of you who can't appreciate it all I can say is this.

You wouldn't go for a run down the road when you enjoy running wearing a pair of wellingtons. You would spend a bit of money and buy some proper running shoes.

You wouldn't buy a raspberry pi if you love playing computer games at really high quality and speeds. You would invest some money and get a games console of PC

If you enjoy cycling either for commuting or for a weekend long distance cycle you wouldn't buy a heavy steel mountain bike from Halfords you would spend your money on something like this which is light and sturdy with a reasonable groupset and low rolling resistance tyres.

If you don't think this item is for you, rather than slamming it as cold why not just ignore it and look at something else that interests you as all you are doing is voting something cold which you do not fully understand and appreciate.

crazy88, I can only assume some of the irrational haters were the only kids on their street not to get a bike for Christmas, or were dumped for a fit athletic cyclist. I have absolutely no interest in computer gaming, but have no issue with people who do and have better things to do than troll in every thread that isn't for me.

People have a broad range of interests and we're all keen to get value for our money whatever we spend it on. Which is what HUKD is about.

This is a great deal. £400 for frame and £400 for everything else.

I'd probably take the groupset off it and put on this though 105 for £299 105 - 5700 Black or Ultegra 11 Speed Ultegra 11 speed 6800 £500

You'd probably get near on £250 for the Tiagra on Ebay or Gumtree..
