Excellent commuter. Upright position for visibility, bit of suspension for the off road bits, chunky tyres for the dug up tarmac, and Schrader valves so easy to slime and top up air from anybody with a car pump.

Says this has 28 inch wheels, is that too much for a 5ft 12 year old? For some reason I thought the recommended was 24 or 26 inch? Thanks for any advice. Not very clued up on bike sizing!

My point is a huge number of so called German made products are simply re-packaged far east products. Many markets perceive German products as higher quality so that reputation is exploited commercially. When a bicycle frame has lower weight limits and a shorter warranty that would be indicative of a product that does not match the standards of a competitor's product with a longer warranty and higher weight limits. However Cube aren't alone in this situation typically many European and US brands simply import from the far east with or without local assembly, they constantly change factories to get the best prices and maintain their margin. The point is when you are basically dealing with an importer with inconsistent quality factor that into your buying decision. If you buy a Giant bike it will have high engineering standards and made in Giant's own factories. If you buy from an importer quality is unknown. As someone else pointed out some Cube frames have been appalling quality in the past, that could be a different factory to today or could be the same, how can we know. Quality is pretty much determined by the factory not the stickers on the frame.

Lefty

That’s a pretty generic article about ‘made in Germany’, and has no specific relevance to Cube or indeed bike manufacture at all. Whereas, the examples I provide, specifically provide evidence of German assembly. Not reboxing, not trying to state ‘made in Germany’, but German assembly. Clearly some parts are made in Bangladesh and the Far East, but also quite specifically, the bikes are assembled in Bavaria. Not sure where you are going with this when the evidence is so clear and upfront. If you have problems with manufacturing of parts in low cost labour economies, fair enough, but you have no evidence to support your statements about ‘low quality’, ‘basic materials’, ‘poor quality control’ other than a personal view that this is how it is in relation to Cube bikes. We all have opinions and views on products, but please don’t try and pass this off as fact.

bonzobanana

Not sure why I wrote Pakistan but I tend to write my comments very quickly. You have to understand a huge amount of German industry is what they call the last significant process where a product can come in and be simply re-boxed and get a made in Germany stamp. https://www.businessinsider.com/made-in-germany-2012-1?IR=T So as you can see from the article above. Cube can buy a complete bike manufactured in Bangladesh, rebox it and then sell it as made in Germany. The important thing is which factory is used to manufacture the bike, not which warehouse it is distributed from. That's not to say Cube don't properly assemble some bikes in Germany though.

Lefty

Again - it’s Bangladesh not Pakistan. Splitting hairs you might think, and on the assembly of the bikes, the below states predominantly German assembly; google.co.uk/amp/s/singletrackworld.com/2016/08/factory-tour-cube-bikes-new-german-factory/%3famp The bike radar article below actually specifically states; https://www.bikeradar.com/features/inside-cubes-german-hq/ ‘Every Cube bar some of the childrens bikes are assembled at the factory in Germany’

bonzobanana

I guess my point is the frame will be nothing special in manufacturing quality. Pakistan is generally regarded as the lowest of the major exporters of bikes and bike frames at the current time. Doesn't necessarily mean the bike is bad overall but as long as you factor that into the price you are paying. No point paying top money for a bicycle tthat is made in a low end factory using more basic materials. The majority of Cube bikes are wholly manufactured in the far east and not assembled in Bavaria, even some high end models nowadays. As you can see from that news report that is years old. However with any brand that is basically an importer knowing which factory was used for which specific model is very difficult, it may change frequently or the same model maybe made at multiple factories. Very difficult to assess quality when the factory may change year by year. Same is true of many importers, I have a Carrera Subway made in Vietnam but nowadays they are made in Cambodia and years before they have been made in Taiwan by Merida and possibly mainland China factories. Halords seem to be using Insera Sena in Indonesia for many of their bikes at the moment, Carrera, Boardman and Voodoo. I just feel when you are dealing with an importer always looking to find the cheapest factory you should factor that into the price you are paying. Giant are an actual manufacturer, they make their own frames and many components themselves and their factories are state of the art for mass produced bicycles.

I would probably recommend a hybrid bike with disc brakes to someone that is getting their first bike, as riding on drop bars can take some getting used to. But I would just go to a bike shop which has a good selection of bikes, try a few out within your price range and get the one you like the best. Don't get too hung up on component levels (105, Tiagra, Ultegra etc) as they are all pretty similar. The more expensive ones are just lighter and maybe have an extra gear, but as long as they are all setup properly, they all should work just as well as each other.

I use one of these type (and Strava if going on a long ride) but phone can stay in back pocket. No point having a phone screen on all the time and at risk in a crash. And I use the phone for tunes. Besides, this thing can stay on the bike all the time so it's always ready as soon as you start riding. As long as you get the wheel circumference correct they should be as accurate too.

Unless you are happy to get a decent mount and phone case, such as quad lock for your phone (£40plus), seeing your distance and speed on the handlebars in real time is fine on a bike computer like this. I had an Aldi one for ages that did cadence and speed and performed well for 5 years. Now upgraded to a Garmin for the navigation and route finding as well. Phone for me is cumbersome and I prefer to keep it safe in a saddle bag/pocket.

Unless you;re planning on cycling on rough tracks or off road there are a number of reasons to avoid a suspension fork: 1. It adds to the cost of the bike - so you could spend less or get better components somewhere else. 2. It adds to the weight of the bike. 3. It adds to the maintenance the bike will need 4. Many of them add to the effort required to cycle by absorbing energy that should be making you go forwards. If you're cycling on reasonably smooth roads, towpaths, etc. you don't need a suspension fork. If you really want one, make sure it has a lockout so you can lock it in place when you're on a road.

MakeItHotinHere

Why better with a rigid fork? Thank you for detailed information

ArthurDent1

Cycle to Work might restrict you to new rather than SH. Carrera bikes from Halfords/Cycle Republic are good starter bikes. Their Boardman range are worth the extra if your budget allows. If you've got a local bike shop that's open (most of them are) you're likely to get better service there than in the big chains like Halfords/Cycle Republic/Evans which can be very hot or miss. As others have said, you'd be better with a rigid front fork rather than suspension on a hybrid. If you want to ride on unsurfaced paths (towpaths, etc.) just make sure the tyres aren't too narrow and it'll be fine (mine are 35mm, occasionally I do cobbles or a rough bit of towpath and wonder if I should get 42mm). If you can get a Cycle to Work voucher the savings are quite significant so well worth doing. I reckon it saved me about 1/3 of the cost of my bike.

My view on Planet X is that it's a bit like a jumble sale: there are some great bargains and some real tat. I've bought lots of bits from them. Clothes, lights, components and they've been a mixed bunch. Given that you can't ride or see one before you buy it, I'd hesitate to buy a bike from them. It's too much money to risk. I know a mechanic who says he has to rebuild more Planet X bikes than any other after delivery, but he also says you can got a lot of gear for your money. I'd never spend hundreds (and the rest potentially!) on a bike I can't be sure will be right for me. By contrast Felt have a very good, solid reputation for producing excellent bikes and this looks like a bit of a bargain!

Urgatt

Full disclosure - I've never ridden a Planet X. I know a few riders who have them as winter bikes and describe them as 'a bit noodly'. I actually quite like Planet X's offerings - I've bought loads of accessories from there. I just wouldn't buy a bike. The finishing kit - e.g. saddle, handlebars, etc is usually unbranded and they have this odd habit of fitting the same length cranks to all sizes of bike. Also, Planet X only seem to have their Pro Carbon Evo in medium frame at the minute, in either pink or blue. So I'd definitely opt for the Felt in that case.

I spent an extra 20 quid on the version with 21 gears instead of 18, trigger shift instead of revo, and front suspension for the days where we go off tarmac on green lanes or whatever (Cross CRX500 - sounds like a motorcycle). Seems like worth the extra money to me. C

Ouzoherb

Nothing wrong with steel frames and I would go as far to say I prefer them to the harsh ride of aluminum ones which require front suspension thus increasing the weight. This bike is heavy though but for casual use is good enough. If I were using it daily I would spend a lot more as the money you save by comuting by bike will pay for a far better and enjoyable experience.

Track riders often use wheel covers to keep their tyres fastidiously clean while transporting bikes. You really don't want any contamination on your tyres when riding on the boards! Probably also useful when loading filthy CX bikes into the back of the family camper after a race when you'd rather not have muddy tyre marks all over the furniture. (to be clear - I'd probably want two separate bags for these two use cases :) ) These seem a pretty good alternative to normal wheel covers, although I'd share other concerns about the quality not being up to the level of the "proper" version.

I'd sell the fitted wheels/tyres and source a decent secondhand carbon wheelset and fit some low rolling resistance tyres (maybe Conti GP5000s) ..then you'll have a really impressive steed.

bonzobanana

It depends on whether you are a bentley engine or trabant engine. Bikes should match their riders, if you are a super competitive cyclist who perhaps competes in races etc then it could make a lot of sense. The price is related to the construction, Carbon fibre frames while lighter are much more expensive to make as involves hours of labour compared to conventional metal frames. The components are also higher end either because of lighter materials or extra processing of materials to make them lighter, i.e. drilling holes in the cassette cogs etc. It's all extra time and money to make a lighter more aerodynamic bike but its marginal gains. If you drive a Bentley you'll be a lot faster than most cars but a 90kg unfit man on a £10k super bike is still going to be overtaken by a 85kg fitter man on a £200 Halfords road bike.

The Carrera Subway is a rigid mountain bike that is sold as a hybrid bike. It's pretty much all mountain bike parts including 27.5" wheels its probably represents the most versatile bike you can buy as its pretty good in all areas. It's the opposite to the Triban in that it is incredibly strong so ideal for heavier riders looking to get back into cycling. You then have its stronger mountain bike frame being utilised mainly for its extra strength for heavier riders. You could say the Marasa was between the Triban and Subway both in weight and overall strength. The Marasa is not a full on mountain bike like the Subway. You can also fit suspension forks to the subway so you could quickly configure it as a hardtail if going fully off-road and then refit the rigid forks for commuting etc. However saying that rigid forks are still usable off road, the techniques are different when riding and you wouldn't go as fast over the more technical bits but still capable of using such trails.

BigTool4U

Where does the carrera subway 1 fit in the debate?

bonzobanana

I wouldn't call Sora mid range but its one groupset I guess over Altus as its Tourney>Claris>Sora for road bikes but Tourney>Altus for mountain bikes but Altus by its very nature is a mountain bike groupset so should be more durable and capable of dealing with mud better etc. So you could make the case that Altus is better than Sora for a hybrid bike that is going to be used off road plus the Voodoo Marasa has a triple chainset so has a wider range of gears so will be easier up hills etc. However as I said before the very fact they are using different types of groupsets shows they aren't aiming for the same market. The Triban is definitely much more of a road bike in construction with very light hybrid functionality and the Marasa is much more capable off-road and a stronger, heavier bike. The issue of the weight limit of the bike is a huge issue if you are over the limit or plan to load the bike up with additional weight, i.e. light touring etc. I totally accept that if you weigh 60kg its a non-issue though. However considering the average weight of a uk man is about 82kg which is close to the maximum rider weight of the bike I think its important to be mentioned. Decathlon have had a lot of frame recalls due to failures more than most companies. I don't think Halfords have had any frame or fork recalls unlike Decathlon despite having a huge slice of the UK market, as much as 40% of bike sales by volume. There were some Boardman bikes recalled but that was a poorly fitted brake caliper not failures of the frame. A typical Halfords bike has a 60% greater load capacity 100kg vs 160kg. So generally a Halfords bike is a much safer bike, frames and forks are stronger, wheels have a higher spoke count etc. Halfords bikes meet the suggested maximum weight limits of the EN standard like many other brands like Giant, Specialised, Trek etc. That's why I think its always important to mention the low weight limits of Decathlon bikes, it isn't clearly shown when you visit Decathlon or on their site but the limits are clearly stated in the documentation when you receive the bike. Many cyclists don't care how Decathlon have achieved lower bike weights but its important to cyclists above the average weight.

ktrizzle

I agree that they're different bikes for different purposes so difficult to compare. But certainly in terms of the groupset - the Triban has the mid-range Sora whereas the Voodoo has the entry level Altus so the Triban is clearly better. I would argue the weight limit on the frame is a non-issue for most cyclists so doesn't really detract from the safety of the bike. I wasn't really trying to compare the two bikes, I was just giving my opinion that the Triban is not a "poor deal" as they other person claimed.

bonzobanana

I'm unsure about what criteria you are using for claiming the Triban is better but the Voodoo seems to be a hybrid bike based on mainly mountain bike components where as the Triban is a hybrid bike based on mainly road bike components. The Voodoo is a much stronger bike capable of more abuse and better off-road where as the Triban is a lighter bike for lighter duty use. I wouldn't of thought it was clear cut which is better as that would depend on the rider and how he/she wants to use the bike. Safety would be something the Voodoo excels over the Triban, much stronger frame and forks, much stronger wheels, 60kg greater total load capacity, superior hydraulic brakes although personally for a hybrid bike I think mechanical disc brakes are fine and easier to maintain but you can't argue against the superior stopping power of hydraulic brakes.

Nice discount but a lot of proprietary parts with high repair and maintenance costs and if you are in any sort of minor accident where the CF frame or forks need to be scanned it will take a while to dismantle. I'm never quite sure who uses an e-road bike like this I assume you can't use it for competitions and seems a bit unfair on a club ride. It's not exactly practical for nipping down the shop to buy your groceries or parked up outside work for commuting. Seems to have limited uses and high costs. At the other end of the scale is Carrera's e-road bike which I'm sure doesn't compare but you'll still have £2500 in your pocket or more and ongoing costs will be a tiny fraction of money in comparison and is likely to outlast the Trek bike by many years because none of the parts are high cost proprietary parts that may not be available in the future. Both bikes will only assist you up to 15.5mph. Some may criticise the Carrera over the Trek but if you are fifty miles form home and either the motor fails (common on Bosch) or you've damaged your drivechain you are walking home but the Carrera has two independent ways of propelling the vehicle either the hub motor or the normal gears. If you lose your derailleur or chain you just have to spin the cranks for the motor to keep working. Definitely the Trek is the one to buy if you want to support your local independent bike shop assuming they do Trek servicing and repairs. Yes I'm a bit cynical about high cost bikes like these as sometimes it seems people don't think about the very high ongoing costs associated with such a bike or the huge depreciation.

Having been passed by electric bike riders in the past as I'm climbing hills I considered theses a bit of a cheat but a friend now uses one on our group rides after an injury and they can still get out and do the rides with us. Great piece of kit. Good discount, heat added.

Insta is crazy for absolute horse s#@$ products. Everything looks so amazing then you look it up on amazon and exactly as you say, find it for 1/4 of the price and the reviews say its crap

Its not been easy, the tolerances for building the micro generators are so fine! Looks like a brilliant product, if only the licensing/suppliers would hurry up!

Looks like I’m in the wrong game. €100,000 out of nowhere.
