which bike Specialized or Cube

Postby angsurr » Fri Oct 05, 2012 13:41 pm

I am buying a bike for my daughter that is starting to take up racing and cant decide between 2013 Specialized Amira Sport or the 2013 Cube Axial WLS GTC SL Carbon.
Any comments would be appriciated.

If you're getting it from a shop, then the Cube but get them to swap the chainset from a triple to a double or compact.

What age is your daughter and what gearing is she allowed to race with?

My money would be on the Cube. 10-speed Tiagra va 9-speed Sora on the Spesh.

Also Easton EA30 wheelset vs DT Axis.

Only slight issue is that the Cube appears to only be available with a triple crankset whereas the Spesh is suppied with a compact.

I don't view this as a real deal breaker but there are those who would not be seen dead racing on a bike with a triple crankset.

If she likes the cube then i would encourage her to go with it. She can always switch the cranks later if need be.
