    Cube MTB

    Hello all you fellow cycling cats.

    My boss just moved into town from Germany and is looking for a bike. He has ridden Cube in Europe and wants to buy one here state side. Thing is, not much availability around these necks of the woods, dig?

    Since I do my share of mountain biking, brining in the scrapes and bruises to show it, he's looking to me for advice on what is similar in ride to a Cube. He went ot our LBS and was shown the standard Trek/Specialized/Giant offerings and did not care for the lines, so to speak. Since I have no freakin clue what a Cube is like, thought I'd stick this here and see if any of you's guys know of something similar.

    Best I can tell, the dual suspension Cube is along the lines of a four link system, a la Kona.

    He's 6'7" or so, so definitely a 29er. Let's not get started on this 650b nonsense, btw. I showed him my Mach 429, not sure I convinced him, though. He wants to spend $3k max.

    Here's a pic:



    Cheers

    The Cube uses the Horst link suspension which is patented by Specialized. So a Specialized would be the closest thing to a Cube. Have him check out the Epic, Stumpjumper FSR, and Camber 29ers.

    You could also probably order it and have it shipped? I am not sure how much of a hassle that would be though.
