Awesome bike at £500 off, superb frame.

Aye - I've just ordered it - quite excited! Been looking for a carbon fibre road bike, but I wanted disc brakes as I live in Scotland, and they're so much better in the rain..

I've got the attain gtc sl and it's a great bike. The frame is very comfortable. The brakes are pretty good, for a road bike, although there's only so much traction on skinny road tyres. I've swapped the 25mm for conti gp4000 w's in 28mm (actually measure 30mm) and it's got room for a slightly wider tyre still.

9kg? That's quite heavy for a CF bike isn't it?

Hot. The geometry is pretty laid back, but the spec if rock solid and hydro disks are brilliant in all weathers... (even if the hoods are a bit ugly)

It's not super light but disc brakes are a bit heavier and the tyres on this aren't amazingly light either. Still a cracking bike. The Boardman Road Team Alloy with 105 was the best buy for a grand a couple of years back. That was 9 and a bit kilos. This gets you carbon, 105, hydraulic brakes and a similar weight for the same cash. Bargain.

50 is sold out... what a shame!

​thanks for this - I was wondering how wide I could go with these..

Thank you for your insightful input into what may actually be a legitimate question. There's no reason to suspect benjammin316 was being facetious so why be so rude? We're all here to help one another find a bargain and that's it.

The answer to the question is quite simply a lot of higher end bikes don't come with them because as you go up the ranks in cycle world most folk wear shoes that clip on to their specially made pedals.

Unproductive comments like this scare people from posting on this site for fear of persecution, I understand that those making such comments tend to be struggling with inner self-issues and see their actions as a way to realise a little steam but this is not the place for self healing.

Yes, my £300 triban 3 is only just over 10kg so it's the difference of 2 bottles of drink.

I'd be very happy with this!!

" because as you go up the ranks in cycle world" .... eh? haha!!

I'm not convinced with disc brakes on road bikes. Especially when they bring additional weight.

I can see the point if you are doing 70 MPH+ downhill as a pro. For the average Joe who doesn't average 16MPH bit pointless. And expensive to save weight by upgrading the wheels.



There is a Cannondale Synapse 105 Disc road bike on sale for 699 GBP. How does it compare to this in performance and value for money?

i just posted a separate deal for the Cannondale.

The cube has the Shimano hydraulic disc brakes that are £300-350 after market and comes with the full 105 groupset incl. crankset , versus an fsa crankset and cheap mech disc brakes.

They are different price ranged bikes so I think both have vfm, more difficult to compare and depends on your budget foremost. Do you need hydraulic brakes .

​I really wanted a carbon fibre bike - shallow, I know but true!

That is one lovely bike. Fortunately none in my size.

The disc brakes contribute to quite a lot of weight compared to usual callipers

Agreed.

As a non pro I can see the point. Going down a hilly road at maybe 40mph that I have ridden on my disc based hybrid many times. I nearly ploughed into traffic as my V brakes were even near as responsive. Added to that the wear on the rims, especially in winter then disc brakes are miles better in opinion. If you doing time trials weight may be important for the average road biker it not that big a deal.

I've got them. Give me a call and I'll post them.

Fairly, but I've come to realise that carbon is more about comfort, than weight saving.
The disc brakes and ancillaries add a fair bit over standard rim brakes.

Rechecked them and the conti tyre actually measure 31mm inflated. I did try a 38mm Victoria tyre on it, but that was too wide.

Some people ride, or get caught riding in the rain. Rim brakes are shocking when the wheel is wet; discs work all the time.
I've only been riding road for a couple of years, so not a traditionalist, but I see this as having my eyes open to improvements in technology.
I don't descend at 70mph, but can average 16mph easily enough and have been scared a few times by how poor road bike brakes can be, especially after riding modern mtb's.

I have a 900 mile 9 day event that i need to start training for, can this bike handle it? Or should i look for something lighter without the hydraulic discs? My budget is pretty much what this bike is worth.

Appreciate any comments from endurance bike riders on here. Cheers

This bike would be almost perfect for this. Presuming you don't need to carry much.
