Cube LTD CLS Pro City Bike 2013 £329 @ CRC

Found 24th May 2014
I was looking for a new bike to get about town and go cycling with friends. Bought one of these a couple of weeks ago after a friend recommended them at £369. It's now reduced to £329, so an even better bargain.

I've been using it solidly for 3 weeks and I'm very happy with it. The front suspension works well on the potholes, and I've been using it on light off road trails. The hydraulic brakes are also very good, very pleased with this bike.

Looks good! Discount code 'May' for extra £10 off?

I'm 6ft 6ins would the 50cm frame size be ok for me

Many thanks. I went onto the site an purchased the ladies model for the wife.

2% Quidco too. The discount "May" does not work with Cube bikes.

Do you have it? According to the table, above, it seems way too small for you?

I'm 5'10, if the 50cm frame is good for you, I might consider one for myself.

I'm also 6'6 and I have a cube acid and was advised to get the bigger 22" size and it's very comfortable but a 20" would be ok, best bet is to go to your local bike shop and get a sit on a 20" cube to see how it fits.

I sat on the 2014 model in a shop, the larger frame was a little big, but the 50cm was right. As long as there is clearance from the crossbar when you stand over bike, it should be OK. These are just guidelines, we're all different proportions.

damn you hduk purchased one for myself but does it come with pedals? none in the photos

I bought the Curve Pro last year. both models are awesome. such a nice bike to ride. I'm 6'1"

you get pedals in the very large box, 5 minutes to attach them and the handlebars.

City bike with bouncy forks! Why?

oh thanks.
I didn't realise that you were the op. Anyway do you think this is better or trek 8.2ds

I honestly couldn't say, I looked at a few bikes in Halfords and a Trek in a local shop (although I cannot remember the exact model). Trek is a decent brand, but the Cube was a good price with decent equipment for the price. At 329 it's a no-brainer.

The cube has a slightly better set of components in certain areas:
shimano acera > altus shifters and derailleurs
hydraulic disk > mechanical disk
Trek have better brand recognition amongst the general public (cube are a rated brand amongst those that know, but would be generally the sort of person who would be looking at a higher price bracket) so might retain a slightly higher resale value

I'm looking to purchase a mountain bike and i'm new to thw whole thing so looking for a decent set up but only for a beginner. Can anyone please tell me which is better in this and merlincycles.com/beo…tml
Thanks. Any advice would be welcomed.

I have received and ridden this bike and it is good. Nuff said.
