As the saying goes “Life is short, so buy the damn bicycle” or something to that effect. Therefore I bought a new bike.
It’s a Cube Stereo 140 HPC Pro 29. It’s a 29″ 140mm travel full-suspension bike and it’s really very pretty. It uses Fox suspension front and back and has a full Shimano Drivetrain (SLX/XT mix) with a rear clutch mech (minimise chain slap and dropped chains).
For a full spec list check out the official Cube site (HERE)
I’ve not yet managed to take it out on any real trails but I’m off to Snowdonia in Wales next week so will be able to give it a proper go then.
Here’s some more pictures:
