A reliable companion for longer rides. Also suited for daily commuting through the lightweight V-brakes and the high tech lighting
system with hub dynamo. 27 speed Shimano gear shifting enhance your radius. The clean cable routing makes maintenance
easy. Bottle cages can be mounted at the seat tube and the down tube. One of the highlights is the suspension fork SR Suntour
NEX-HLO with hydraulic lockout. The Bush & Müller lighting represents latest LED headlight technology
with bright/dark- sensor, on/off automatic and daytime lights for more safety in the daily traffic.
Aluminium Lite: 6061 aluminium alloy requires a heat treatment
for the finished product. It is a stiff, very corrosion
resistant, fatigue resistant, non-shearing material
suitable for light tube-sets with high stiffness.
Frame Safe System: To protect their high-end aluminium frames from damage,
they are built with the CUBE Frame Save System replaceable
derailleur hanger. The mounting thread is in the hanger
and not in the frame as is usual. In case of a crash, this
hanger can be easily and quickly replaced by a new one.
Wet Paint Surface: On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the
logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. Cube use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.
Integrated Post Mount: The postmount system is found at all carbon fibre frames,
the high end models of the touring bikes and the upper
range aluminium models. The bolts and the IS adpater
aren’t needed anymore, less parts mean less weight. In this
case we save 30 grams. This may not sound a lot. But as
you see, there is potential to save weight in every detail.
Buy Cube Touring NL City Bike from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World's Largest Online Bike Store.
I am interested in the Cube Touring 2013 NL (Netherlands?) bike but before ordering wanted to check if the 54cm size is right for me or not. The geometry of the NL version seems a little bit different, more upright, to the standard non-NL version - so is the standard "Cube Touring" recommendation of 170-175cm rider height still valid?
I am 180cm tall, with 32'' inside leg. The bike would mainly be used for city commuting, with occasional longer day rides, so an upright position is preferable.
