A cross touring bike with a dynamic riding position. The 24-speed components is perfect for leisure and fitness riding. The Multi- Feature Dropout allows fast and simple fitting of fender, carriers, kickstand and disc brake. Bottle cages can be mounted at the seat tube and the down tube. The dynamic top tube enhances the stiffness of the frame. The Shimano Alivio components come with EZ-FIRE shifter/brake lever and 24-speeds.The Easton EA30 stem handlebar combination looks sleek but is sturdy. On the lady version the Humpert Ergorizer handlebar is mounted.
Rated 5 out of 5 by J111 Great bike
Very good riding position and everything works smoothly. I was considering between sizes 50 and 54, and I'm glad that I chose 54, my height is bit under 180cm and it fits well. This bike is pretty much what I was looking for, not too expensive but good quality, for biking mainly around city and sometimes going to forest paths when needed.
Also some little things to criticize, gear shifters are not the best in the world with plastic brake levers, but anyway they work well and do their job so no complains. Pedals that came with the bike are not good, and other pedal was snapping while biking, maybe bearing problem? I had to replace them at once with old pedals. Overall I'm very happy with the bike, great value for money and can be upgraded easily.
Also what all the other reviewers wrote, some tools and drink samples were nice bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Loll Great deal, great bike
At the sale price this bike is such a bargain.
The service received from Chain Reaction has been top notch, add to that the surprise addition (free) of a pedal spanner, multi tool & drinks bottle this truly is the deal of the decade :)
For me the front forks are not required, I would rather of had disk breaks, but at this price this is not really an issue for me as there are options to upgrade if and when required.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Trabant быстро, но резина дырявая
Вел пришел в СПб за 1,5 недели. Упакован хорошо, но заднее колесо спущено. Дефектная камера - травила на ровном месте. В другом месте надорвана боковина протектора 2 см до корда покрышки, пришлось новую резину сразу клеить.
Аппарат накатистый, резину поменяю на полуслик. Смарт сэм мне не очень понравился.
Рама 54см на мой рост 179 подошла нормально.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Massimiliano882 Ottima ciclo ibrida adatta a fuoristrada leggero.
Corrisponde esattamente al mezzo che cercavo, cioè una bici adatta a percorsi in fuoristrada leggero e allo stesso tempo godibile nell'uso quotidiano ed è anche bella esteticamente.
E' stata consegnata pronta all'uso, nella confezione sono incluse le chiavi per il montaggio dei pedali e del manubrio, operazione facilissima.
Il cambio, i freni e le ruote erano perfettamente registrati e non è stato necessario alcun intervento.
La qualità generale dei componenti è buona, in particolare il telaio si presenta molto bene ed è predisposto per l'installazione dei freni a disco, dei parafanghi,del portapacchi e del cavalletto laterale nonchè dei due portaborraccia. Ottimo!
In marcia scorre leggera e la seduta confortevole permette tragitti lunghi anche di 2/3 ore.
In conclusione la bici vale molto di più del prezzo pagato e la consiglio con convinzione.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Panimportkeltoon bon vélo pour commencer
super vélo, léger, sympa
Seul le dérailleur avant n'est pas terrible (passage des 3 plateaux avant un peu difficile)
un peu déçu par la finition des autocollants (pas de passage de vernis sur les autocollant)
Selle un peu dure
Livraison rapide (commandé dimanche, reçu jeudi),avec manuel, clés pour le montage des pédales (fournies avec) + guidon, gourde et quelques échantillons de nourriture sportive
taille 54 cm pour 1m80 un peu grand (bien baisser la selle) mais ça va
Pas cher pour la qualité du matos !

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nopysmurf Good value
This is my first cross bike and I recommend it to those who want to (re) enter the world of biking but do not know much about bike parts and do not want to break their bank.
It is obviously not one of those top bikes but it still offers a solid performance and also opportunies for upgrades. It can easily be upgraded to a mid-range touring bike.
Parts from CUBE is also not difficult to find.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CountryCyclist Good sale bargain
I got this in the end of year for £320. It is the first top quality bike that I have purchased so I can't really evaluate in comparison to other bikes but it seems good quality and I have been using it for cycling around country lanes so far.

700c is the correct tyre size; 700c equates to a 622mm diameter, while 26" equates to 559mm (the new 650b standard is slightly larger at 584mm) and 29" MTB is also 622mm, although runs much wider tyres than a 700c (Road) rim.
