:lol: I am 6ft 2 so think I may need the 60 frame.

I may go to the store and look at these further. I will be doing that before I would buy anyway but spending a bit of time looking at different bikes before I narrow down stores etc.

Got cash for a decent bike so am not going to waste it on the first thing I see!

cool, thanks

why does this bike show different wheels than the one on the store? what are those rim wheel things called that have DT Swiss on them?

i think you could get these wheels as an upgrade option, the 2013 is the same. them rim wheels thigs are just deep section aero wheels.

thanks. you can probably tell I am learning as I go! I thought it was some kind of plastic clip that attaches to the rim, didnt know it was a whole wheel.

I have sent an email for a possible upgrade price with the new bike but I get a feeling that I will be buying the bike as it is and upgrading the wheels maybe in the summer.

Be careful about the sizing. Cube's sizing is eccentric. I am 5ft 8 in and usually take a 52-54, the correct size in the Cube for me is 56cm. Also problems with cables rattling in the tob tube. Winstanley had to get a sleeve from Cube for me which I fitted myself with a little bit of effin and blinding. If you buy, maybe get them to pre-fit the sleeve for you. It is a minor but known problem and acknowledged quietly by the manufacturer. Otherwise a great bike
