Cube Cross City BikeCube’s Cross is the right bike for escaping the daily routine, out into the open air – whether it’s for the entire evening after work, or a whole weekend. It’s also well suited to everyday urban use, while retaining a sporty feel. As you’d expect from Cube, they’ve specced technology that inspires: 30 gears, hydraulic disc brakes, anything to deliver functionality and reliability. Whether it’s a forest trail, up in the hills or on the flat, the Cross is ready to go Comfortable Aluminium FrameFunctional can still be beautiful. The dynamic design of the aluminium frame combined with tapered headtube, 3D forged dropouts and double butted tubeset adds an elegant touch while also providing a high level of stiffness without adding weight. Internal cable routing, a replaceable derailleur hanger and multi-functional dropouts – ready to attach mudguards, luggage rack and the Easy Mount Kickstand – are all features that you won’t often find in this price bracket Reliable ComponentsThe Cross City Bike’s sporty nature is complemented by a high-quality, Shimano drivetrain that’s made up of SLX, LX and XT components, including Rapidfire Plus gear shifters and FC-T551 Hollowtech II chainset, where the 48x36x26T chainrings tame any terrain. Suntour’s NCX D RL suspension fork features a handlebar-operated lockout lever and tapered aluminium steerer for extra steering precision. It’s also pretty handy at smoothing out the bumpiest of surfaces. Seating is provided by Selle Royal’s Viper saddle and Schwalbe Smart Sam tyres roll fast and grip tight wherever you ride Features:Frame: Aluminium Superlite Trekking Cross Taper Double ButtedFork: SR Suntour NCX D-RL Coil Tapered, 63mm Headset: FSA Orbit Z-t ECO, Top Zero-Stack 1 1/8″ (OD 44mm), Bottom Integrated 1 1/2″Stem: Cube Performance Pro, 31 8mm Handlebar: Cube Rise Trail Bar, 680mm Grips: Cube Natural Fit Tour Front Derailleur: Shimano LX FD-T670, Top Swing, 31 8mm Rear Derailleur: Shimano XT RD-T8000, 10-Speed Shifters: Shimano SLX SL-M670, Rapidfire-Plus Brake System: Shimano BR-M315, Hydr.

Along the obtained organic look, the production method is primarily motivated by functional reasons. Multiple converted tubes enable us to manufacture lighter and also stiffer aluminium frames. Aluminium Superlite: Extremely high-tensile strength heat-treated 7005 aluminium alloy is developed for the highest requirements. It is very stiff, fatigue resistant, corrosion resistant and has high elongation. Cube’s Superlite tubes are double butted, giving very light tubesets with a high level of stiffness Easy Mount Kickstand: The Easy Mount Kick Stand is a new system developed and designed by Cube. The base of the stand is mounted from below to a fitting plate integrated to the frame and fixed with a through bolt. This Kickstand is extremely stiff and solid through the enlarged contact areas between base and frame which gives a stable stand even with loaded panniers. Smooth Welded: This elaborate procedure with doubled weld seams has two advantages: On the one hand, it improves the firmness of the weld seams and minimises the load peaks on the tube welds through energy flow. On the other hand, it helps the frame to a better and more organic look due to the smooth and hardly noticeable welds Frame Safe System: To protect their high-end aluminium frames from damage, Cube built the Frame Safe System’s replaceable derailleur hanger. The mounting thread is in the hanger and not in the frame as usual. In case of a crash, this hanger can be easily and quickly replaced by a new one Wet Paint Surface: On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. We use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight. Integrated Cable Routing:Internally routed cables offer many advantages. Cables are protected from dirt for longer life, weight is saved thanks to the absence of external housing and the bike has a clean, sleek appearance. Tapered Steerer: This steerer tube design is stiffer than a conventional straight steerer and yields a more secure ride feel even in difficult terrain. Minimal flex at the front of the frame means the greatest possible steering precision. With the larger steerer, the forks become more rigid. At the same time weight is saved due to the absence of bearing shells as the lower bearing is fully integrated into the headtube. On all of Cube’s carbon models the upper bearing shells are also directly in the frame, so that once more a few grams are saved and the energy transfer is very direct Easy AssemblyWhen you order a bike, one of our trained mechanics will carefully prepare and pack your bike for shipping. Upon delivery, the assembly is simple and all necessary tools are conveniently included in the box Depending on the delivery service and destination, bikes will either be delivered in a large or a small box. Below is a guide as to how your bike will arrive: All bikes for delivery within the UK and Republic of Ireland will be delivered in a large box, except for kids’ bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer’s boxes. All bikes for delivery within the EU on a standard service will be delivered in a large box. If an express delivery option is chosen, your bike will be packed into a small box. Again, the exception is kids’ bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer’s boxes. All bikes for worldwide delivery outside the EU will be delivered in small boxes This video demonstrates assembly from a SMALL BOX This video demonstrates assembly from a LARGE BOX Buy Cube Bikes from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World’s Largest Online Bike Store.
