Doesn't look like a temporary deal, so this might be the new normal, but it's nice to see a carbon-framed road bike with a (mostly) Ultegra groupset and (mechanical) discs for under a grand...

I would expect it to have a motor not pedals at that price...


If it did you'd need insurance, an MOT, a licence, to pay VED, petrol etc. which all adds up. Owning a car is thousands of pounds a year (especially if you're young) but a bike? Maybe £100 and all of that goes on parts.

No idea what a motorbike costs to run mind.

I’d go cube personally full 105 kit whereas the planetX has got a FSR crankset, plus the brakes are shimano not avid, do like that grey as well, it’s a kg heavier but 9kg ok for me when I could do with losing a few legs that’d be a few pies cheaper than paying hundreds on a bike

Definitely the Cube for me, I prefer the look of the Cube (personal preference I'm aware) more importantly hydraulic discs over mechanical.
Down side is a 105 over Ultegra although Planet X have skimped on chainset etc. In reality not much deference between the them, have 6800 Ultegra on best bike and 5800 105 with discs on my winter ride, not much difference in operation and feel, a few grams in weight and a bit of snob value if you buy into that kind of thing.

It doesn't have pedals at this price, it you don't understand that then its obviously not for you.
The cubes drivetrain is £500+ to buy so a real bargain
the wheelset fulcrum 77 is pretty heavy 1.74 kg (£175) get a decent set of wheels and it’ll soon lose weight
