As well as having the longest name for a bike ever... here is my latest creation.

Firstly some apologies:

1. The stem will be slammed but I'm 5 weeks post collarbone breakage and only just on the bike again.
2. The saddle - the white bits make it look angled, I think i need to replace this Fizik Arione R3
3. The saddle bag. Should have removed it for the pics.
4. My FFWD F6R Tubs are away being repaired so pics with the Wheelsmith handbuilt Gigantex training wheels.
5. I didn't line my wheels up correctly.
6. Iphone 5 camera.
7. Haven't weighed bike yet.

I've had a play with setup and have settled on this stem position.

Will get it cut mid week.

Now sporting my race wheels. Weight to follow, not really light as its just Ultegra. May swap chainset out next and I'm still not happy with this saddle.

Warranty or impact damage?
It was a nice bike none the less.
I like the nudge at Starbucks by that cafe in the second pic.

Looks really good, better as a giant tcr, in my opinion. Cube are quite popular in germany, never heard of frame issues like yours. its a pity.

Ive had 3, 2 broken BB shells and now a chainstay crack.

It will be getting repaired at fibre lyte as they are local to me in the UK. May have a second life as a posh winter bike or a hill climb bike.
