I bought a Proflex Beast in 97 and was not impressed with it. Thought I was through riding the rough stuff but I found I wanted to ride in the mountains and my hardtail is just that, hard. So I bought this three year old Cube AMS 100 just now. Not too shure how hard it has been used (pretty cheap)but it seems OK. Had my first ride in the snow today. Nice weather and great riding on two small frozen lakes on the way. Tried some singletrack as well and it seems to be a good bike for my intended use. Only 100 mm of travel but I am not out to go fast downhill so it will probably be enough.

it is a nice bike - got Formula R1 brakes and X0 gearing. Looking at the condition of the jockey wheel's teeth, doesn't appear to have done astronimical mileage.

check the chain for wear and replace if necessary.

you in Scandinavia?
