    Very interested in that one, top components and a full carbon frame for a low price, but having no ISCG tabs is a dealbreaker for me. I can't believe they didn't implement those :/

    I've been drooling over this bike, but there's no distributor in North America anyways...Looks pretty sweet though.

    Iv`e got the 29`er version. Best riding bike iv`e ever ridden and at 25lb`s it climbs like a billy goat.

    As for ISCG tabs, the stereos come with the clutch gears and laos (@cube team) won second place on mega avalach this year on one. Direct mount chain guide and bashring works fine.
    Disclaimer. I now sell bicycles and bicycle tyres.

    Bumping this up. Anyone have a report?

    As far as buying one, note they can be purchased online from UK and Euro dealers at good prices for light carbon bikes.

    ordered mine in week1
    should be delivered in week4

    still in doubt: keep the XT or swap for XX1
    have different bikes and this would be Enduro in Alpes/Scotland

    This one does and here is link to the 3 versions of Cube 27.5 they sell:

    http://www.tweekscycles.com/cube-650...mountain-bikes

    AND: they offer a financing plan

    No doubt about it. Cube is the 27.5" bike of choice for weight weenies. If you have $8700 handy for the top if the line, you get a 160mm bike that weighs more like an XC bike: 22lbs. Lighter and less expensive than comparable Scott or Rocky mtn. carbon bikes.

    Very intriguing AFAIC

    Nice

    [QUOTE=franza;10063906]

    Just ordered mine. Last one available in all sizes direct from Germany.

    Cant wait.

    Franza, i noticed you have changed to a 2x10. What have you used and have you kept original shifters. Did you need to adjust the chain with the chain guide? Looks quite tight.

    Thanks

    @monkeybo99: I use the Hope Bashguard and changed the middle ring to 36 teeth
    The chain guide is the Bionicon C-guide:
    Bionicon c/guide v.01 Kettenfhrung schwarz

    lightweight and goog function

    @flupke73: Stay with the XT and change to double. When I go to the alps, I need often my 22 -34 gearing on the steep ascents.

    @franza, cheers. Did you just remove the big ring and change the middle? Also, have you managed to weigh yours and what did it come out at with pedals etc? Just wondered how close it is to cubes 12.1 kg? ....and frame size.

    Yes, I removed the 44 ring and changed the middle. On my personal scale the stereo is near 13 kg with pedals, RS Reverb, bottle cage and chain guide. For a "doing all" bike its okay.
    And the testride on my hometrail was fine (but in snow) Heres an old video of my trail riding with my Remedy. So You can see the terrain I normal drive with the Stereo. For me itīs perfect:
