Does anyone have a Cube Attain SL Disc? My wife has approved a new bike. My only ‘road’ bike is a Genesis Croix de Fer, which is really reliable and comfortable and great for winter, but I would like to get something lighter weight, which is stiffer and a little more sporty for good weather riding. I am constrained by the cycle to work limit and was thinking of getting something lightweight like the Trek Emonda ALR 4 or the Specialized Allez Elite 2018 or a CAAD12.
The Cube appeals as I love the disks on the Croix, I do quite a bit of riding on crappy roads and it has 105, hydraulic disks and through axles which would be great for that, then in a year or so I could keep the groupset and wheels and upgrade the frame to something more exciting like a Mason or a Bowman. However, I don’t want to ride something boring in the meantime. The spec of the Cube is amazing for the price, so it feels a little too good to be true. The reviews of the Cube’s carbon brother (the GTC Pro) are really good, but I can’t find any for the SL disc, so does anyone have one and would they recommend it? I’m going to try and do a test ride, but does anyone have any other thoughts or advice?
