Spec is good but Jesus... That is the ugliest paint I've seen in some time! Horrible.
Damn, that's a well spec'd bike for the price. Must not buy....must not buy....fight n+1.
Good spec and price. 105 and hydraulic disc brakes under a grand is quite a bargain.
I've just ordered couldn't resist
Only minor issue is lack of mudguard mounts, but that is a very tidy bike for not a lot of money (relatively!)
Not a bad price without staff discount
The complete internal cabling [is impressive. Even in the forks!
I bought a disc brake bike and wasn't that impressed as the discs kept catching and needing adjusting. Is that typical or just my shoddy setup?

Sounds like a shoddy setup to be honest.

First time for discs on the roadie but had them for the last 2 years on my hybrid and they've been absolutely faultless over just over a year and 1000 miles of trails.

Stunning looking bike.

Stunning looking bike.



I thought that too, looks very nice. Spec is pretty much the same and £100 more but looks great.

BB86 is better than BB30 by all accounts
This bike was £845 until the other day. So it may drop again. Though if there's only a few left in your size don't wait around!
Lovely bike.

Were they hydraulic disc brakes or mechanical? Lots of people have problems with mechanical discs and I think it's becoming the general view that they may be more trouble than they are worth...and sometimes downright dangerous. I was riding with a friend in wet, wintry conditions and after a while her mechanical disc brakes just weren't working at all. It took a lot of fiddling about by one of the more mechanically-minded riders to sort out. Hydraulic brakes are a different kettle of fish.

Yup. That would explain your problems. The Wiggle Bike has hydraulic disc brakes which should be much more reliable.

They can catch if warped, or the calliper mounting surface isn't perfectly flat, or a wheel out of true, qr skewers not quite at the right tension etc.

Tempted... any idea on weight
Doesn't seem as good as the Forme full carbon with Ultegra 11 speed and Ksyrium wheels for £899 deal

That's a cracking deal if you are after a 50/58 cm frame, nice looking bike too but why oh why do they use white handle bar tape?

Agree though limited sizes. Alternatives are m.startfitness.co.uk/cyc…tml for £899 or m.startfitness.co.uk/cyc…tml for £699. Not sure how good Forme bikes are though

SKS Raceblades will sort you out.
shame they don't offer 0% finance on this one
I wouldn't even consider a bike without discs. Even if they weigh a little more their stopping power is unequaled
http://www.wiggle.co.uk/eastway-zener-d3-tiagra-2016/
If you don't want to spend as much there is the D3 with Tiagra gears. Its £245 less, plenty of money to upgrade the mechanical discs if you find the TRP Spyre(supposedly the best mechanical ones)fitted not to your liking. Although it may be worth swapping the pads first as there are a few reports saying the original pads are not great. A set trp spyre seem to sell for £60+ on ebay, so will help reduce the cost of the replacements, perhaps the TRP Hy-Rd.

Arrived today, not ridden yet but looks great and so light. I'm looking forward to taking her out.
Price is 999.99 now.

There's a £20 code for the Cube at Rutland - ATTAIN20.
