Cube’s Stereo has low-slung geometry and begs to be thrown into any corner.
CUBE STEREO 140 HPC RACE 29
As we said earlier in this issue it was the Stereo that first alerted us to Cube. The bike has changed a fair bit since then, with no fewer than three versions now up for grabs (a 160mm x 27.5”, this 140mm 29’er, and a 120mm 29’er), but we still love it every bit as much, especially in this particular guise. As before this bike’s main appeal lies in its low slung geometry, one that begs to be pushed hard around any corner. The suspension is pretty decent too, a definite step up from the Fritzz, although much of that could be down to the excellent RockShox Monarch Plus shock. In fact there’s very little to fault full stop in terms of the kit used to build this bike, which is what makes it such a good package for the money.
