Cube Peloton Triple Road Bike
The Peloton can be considered your admission ticket to discovering the experience of road riding at first hand.

With its high quality alloy frame, well balanced ride and 3x8 Shimano group set, this bike is the perfect partner for the touring oriented rider looking for reliability and countless kilometres of enjoyable riding.

The double butted 6061 Superlite aluminium frame with its elaborately mechanically formed down tube, tapered head tube, cross-ovalized Aero Flex seat stays, internal cable routing and 3D forged dropouts is anything but standard for this class of road bikes. The vibration damping CUBE CSL carbon fork and slender seat stays complement the compact yet efficient riding position to create a comfortable sports tourer. Cube have reworked the Peloton frame and increased its head tube length by 20mm.

When you're touring, the bike needs to be reliable. That's why they specified a complete Shimano Claris groupset with ergonomic STI brake/shift levers. With a triple crankset (50/39/30) and 11-32 comfort cassette this experience oriented tourer will always offer the right gear. The 25mm Continental Ultra Sport 2 tyres, mounted on Cube's own home-built CSW RA 0.7 wheels, will help you enjoy the ride hour after hour.

Technologies:
Wet Paint Surface:On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. Cube use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.
Integrated Cable Routing: Internally routed cables offer many advantages. Cables are protected from dirt for longer life, weight is saved thanks to the absence of external housing and the bike has a clean, sleek appearance.
Aluminium Superlight: Extremely high tensile strength heat-treated 7005 aluminium alloy is developed for the highest requirements. It is very stiff, fatigue resistant, corrosion resistant and has high elongation. Cube's Superlite tubes are double butted, giving very light tubesets with a high level of stiffness.
One Piece Design: Welded joints in Cube's high-quality aluminum frames are specially finished via this method and create the impression of a seamless tube design. This generates the visual effect of moulding and ensures high load bearing capacity.

had i not bought the defy 5 on sale 2 months ago, i will definitely grab this one now. great find op!
Weird cassette choice, pretty sure nobody buying this is going up Ventoux.

My money would go on a Board man CX (posted yesterday) that was equipped with Sora (the minimum gear I'd use) for commuting/winter.

Not a bad bike that said.

Maybe they might want to go up Ventoux?
Yeah, odd drivetrain choice. A triple AND a 32 on the cassette? 30x32 actually gives negative gearing, you could probably cycle up a 50% slope with that!

​ha, saw that at the time. crazy stuff.
12-32 on an 8 speed cassette is going to have massive jumps between gears!
I'm new to road biking. Seen this which looks cool and has the Claris and the carbon forks which I've been told is a good start? I've all seen the B'Twin bike from decathlon which has great reviews. Any advice would be grateful.

​mate just get a basic road bike to start with dont get caught up with the gears etc just get something that you can get on and ride. buy a good helmet and bright lights (check ebays there are some good choices) and above all ride defensively because drivers are idiots and dont know how to drive around cyclist. you will have probably bought one by now so enjoy!!
