Well I have recently brought a Cube Ams 110 Pro, and I must say have been very impressed , allot of bike for the money and its a dream to thrash around ,I certainly wouldn't hesitate buying another.

some may find it a little bright, but I quite like it 8)


Looks like you've pinched mine ;)

Out of curiosity, how do you get on with the saddle? mines making my todger go numb.

No problems with the saddle ,the only issue I have is a bit of drift on the front wheel, tried lowering the tyre pressure , may try a tyre change yet

Bit reluctant to do this, its fine at high speed and I like how the front end "feels"
Just at low speed it seems to be an issue

Or saddle forward on the rails a bit (since it looks to be well back on a post with some layback) and/or make a conscious effort to get over the bars a bit more in slow turns to help the front to stick.
Do you only have this problem when in the saddle?

come to think about it, think I only get this whilst in the saddle,hence fast and technical is ok ! not sure if i can move the saddle any further forward, but will look into it

A last thought - what front tyre pressure are you using and how much sag on the forks?

tyre pressure dropped to about 28-30 psi, not sure on sag,was set up at my LBS for my weight
