Cyclocross bike with a stiff, lightweight frame for fitness riders, training and off-road riding. Now with a stylish new CUBE cockpit.

The 27.2mm seatpost offers a welcome improvement in comfort.

I'm doing a race in October, the Grampian Challenge in Michigan. The course is mostly gravel/dirt roads ... Read More »
