Rated 4 out of 5 by scards great bike all round
This is my first road bike as I have converted from mtb. First impressions the bike is amazing and I was able to keep up with my three mates on TT bikes which really impressed me average speed 37km. The only things that disapponted me was I needed tune the gears (a good learning experience) yet made the first ride a bit awkward I upgraded to 105 brakes straight away and it would be good if crc could include even budget pedals with the bike so it could be ridden straight out of the box as my pedals and shoes arrived 7 days after the bike. Overall small issues aside the bike is amazing crc customer service was very helpful and the price is unbeatable in Australia. Well done crc.

Ive had this bike since December and I love it, it's fast and easy to ride. The bike handles well and climbs hills as if by itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Spokesy Top bike for the price
Had the bike for just under a month and love it, the 105 gear set is great,but as previous review suggest I'm looking to upgrade the calipers (not 105# this certainly does not detract from the overall ride.
I found the bike very responsive and has uped my average speed on usual training route.#Although that might be trying to push a new bike to it's limits#
I was concered after reading about the cube small frame sizes as being 6'4" so opted for a 62 frame which was perfect, if anything a little too large,#I'm trying a shorter stem#.
Thanks CRC, Looking forward to the summer.

Just taken delivery of the peloton race and if it rides as well as it looks it will fly. Components are ok although I read various reviews before deciding on the bike and the only thing I would change straight away is maybe the basic callipers for 105 to complete the group set. However well done CRB for another cracking deal.
