Cube have been around for a while too* ;)

The Spark is a linkage driven single pivot full susser

The Cube is a true 4 bar horst link full susser

Totally different designs ;)

Each to their own;) Why don't you like Cube as a brand then?

It's the perfect bike for me on long haul xc rides, it's fast, agile, lightweight & comfortable.

you are smiling a big grin in 2 of those photos (unless it is just for the camera), which is what it is all about, innit? :D

Yup, a huge grin is what it's all about, I think in most pics of me on a bike I'm grinning like a loony! Dunno if it's cos there's a camera there or not though...

Just had the Cube up on the newly acquired digital scales

The result: 26lb 14oz (12.2kg)

Bike spec is slightly different, a white Charge Spoon Ti saddle has replaced the Fizik, the Cube sponge grips are off & Lizard Skins logo lock ons are on the bars now.

Think I might get an XTR cassette for it & shed a few g when the Sram 990 wears out

Saying that I'm happy at sub 27lb for a comfy fast xc/marathon bike
