I'm seeing £332.50. In that case it is a good deal. Claris, carbon bladed fork. Not too heavy. Stock tyres aren't bad too. Wheels aren't going to be great but that is to be expected.

Only in 56/58cm though so you'd have to be >175cm or so.
Unless you can get the £332.50 price you ought to consider paying a little more for the Btwin Triban 520. A far better spec bike for only £80 more.

The whole Cube german engineering thing is a croc. It's a taiwanese frame with chinese made components. Both are basically bikes from the far east whichever you go for even if they have minor assembly in Europe. As for frame geometry and feel that's what the reviews are for. Also case in point when a bike lists 'Cube' instead of a branded component it normally means either a generic part from a oem factory or a brand too crap to mention by name. It's just marketing rather than a part of the bike actually made by Cube. I doubt there is a single part on the bike made in Germany.

I think all the cube branded parts are manufactured by Syntace, another German company manufacturing in the far east, and I've had 2 Cube road bikes and feel their own brand finishing kit is the equal of similar price range 'big name' components.

But yeah, I hope everyone realises this is far east made, assembled in Europe...
Depending upon your relative torso and cycling inseam measurements, the "endurance" geometry of the 56/58cm Cube Attains will be a decent fit for anyone ~5'8 to ~6'2".

I'm 5'10" with relatively short ~32.5" cycling inseam, the 58cm Attain GTC Pro fits me like a glove.
Claris is bottom of the range (8 speed) vs sora is one up (9 speed) not sure its worth £80 more ( assuming 399) if £150 (£322) defo not worth it in my opinion. £322 is a great starter bike price.

Best I can see is 10% off in the vouchers section and quidco, cant see the £322 price.

I'm not sure where people are getting £332.50 from as the final price with VAT included?

Anyway, £399 is about what I would expect to find a 2016 Claris road bike at these days. Most cyclists will recommend spending more for better gears if you can swing it.

Hmm, that seems a bit strange. I have a 34" inseam at 5'8" (very long legs) and my bike fit recommended a 545cm HTT with a 120mm stem.
