Anyone got one, any thoughts?

Going over to hydro disc next season. I'd also like a spare bike so it looks more like an ali bike x 2 rather than one really good carbon disc bike. Can't find any ride reports on this bike so was hoping someone had something. Through axles, hydro disc and 1x11 tick the boxes I think I need

100$ cheaper and 600gr. lighter (but with Rival, not Force)

200$ more expensive but over a kg lighter (with Force and the option to customize a little)

Both well tested. Cheaper but a bit more of a gamble:

For the price of 2 cubes you could also buy three of these :D.

Last two don't have TA though.

Also, not what you asked :) . For which I'm sorry.

Ah thanks, the Canyon is actually even better value as if you buy two you get £400 off so they are actually £1500 each rather than £1750 for the Cube. I believe you also get a discount on Canyon if you have a UK racing license.

Not going to touch Planet X, I need a big frame size (61/62CM) and they do have a reputation for being 'flexy'
