Sizing on Cubes

Postby WarrenG » Tue Jan 15, 2013 13:45 pm

Hi

Currently riding a 56cm Specialized which fits perfectly. I have an opportunity to acquire a Cube at a very reasonable price but won't have the chance to test ride it - is a 56cm Cube the same size roughly as a 56cm Specialized?

When I bought my Cube it was between the 58 and the Spesh Allez 56. Found the size 56 Cube too small for me

I'm 5'11", FWIW

Thanks - I reckon I'll try and sneak out of work and get to Cycle Surgery before I take the plunge

I'm 5'11" and usually ride a 56, my Cube was a 58. Their measurement refers to the seat tube and not the top tube I think. So my 58 had a 56cm horizontal TT

2015 CAAD8 105 - very green

Boardman CX Team - sold
Cannondale Synapse - broken
Cube Streamer - stolen
