Ta for all the positive comments

It is quite a tasty bit of kit, can't wait to get it out on the trails, on the ride back from work it felt really nice, spot on top tube length I reckon

I will be selling the 2010 AMS in my signature, minus the seatpost which I swapped onto this bike, the AMS now has a Cube OE RFR seatpost in matching black and blue.

Lovely looking bike, i've become a fan of cubes. The only thing i would be worried about is the placement of the rear shock... Surely all sorts of cr*p could fling off the tyre and damage it?? Can you get a mud guard like Spesh used to do for the stumpy?
