Felt F4 Ultegra 2012 vs Cube Agree GTC Race 2013

Postby frenchben » Wed Dec 26, 2012 18:09 pm

OK, so here I am again. I'm looking to buy a road bike in the New Year for triathlons and short/long distance cycle rides.

After a lot of research and advice from fellow Bike Radar peeps, here are the two finalists:

Felt F4 Ultregra 2012
http://www.tweekscycles.com/bikes/road- ... -bike-2012

Cube Agree GTC Race 2013
http://www.tweekscycles.com/bikes/road- ... -bike-2013

They both seem like cracking bikes but as newbie to the road bike scene, I thought it would be best to reach out to you before I commit to buy. So, if you've got a mo, I'd love to hear your thoughts and recommendations on these two bikes and which one you feel is the best out of the two.

Thanks in advance for your help! I very much appreciate it!

Cheers,

Ben

The Felts seems to have a short head tube for the comparable top tube so that might be something to consider if you are not that flexible or want a more upright position. They do get good reviews though.

thanks very much triboy222, that's really helpful! I think my priority is to use this bike for triathlons so a more agressive race stance would be fine in this instance.

In that case I'd go for the Felt. Lighter frame and a comfortable ride. I saw one up close at Wiggle and it looked very nice in the flesh.

Thanks again for your help and advice!

How much was the felt was it cheaper than wiggle?
