So, I'm looking at getting a hardtail shortly and it looks like its down to these two bikes.
Beone Blue: http://www.beone-bikes.com/NL/producten/blue.html
or the Cube Reaction R1 : http://www.cube-bikes.de/xist4c/web/...067_.htm#anker
The Cube R1 will be upgraded to full XTR spec/ excluding wheels which will remain as the DT Swiss.
Both have relatively identical geometry and are identical in price over here in the UK.
Spec on the BeOne appears to be better than the Cube largely because it has the SID world cup fork and better wheels. And the Beone is a carbon frame as opposed to an aluminium one for the Cube.
Most of my riding will be on relatively flat singletrack and I'm about 130lbs. Short of testriding both bikes, I would appreciate your views on which bike you would get?
Unfortuntely, Beone and Cube aren't reviewed much in the UK (well unless they're full suspension bikes) so any of your experiences / thoughts would be welcome.
