Cube Bikes Reaction 29er Hardtail

DESCRIPTION

A high-performance 29er carbon hardtail with all the advantages of bigger 29in wheels but as agile as a 26in bike. The SLT comes with fast shifting SRAM X.O 2x10 components and a powerful Formula RC Tune disc brake. The GTC carbon frame is produced using the Twin Mold Monocoque Technology. Oversized head tube and PressFit bottom bracket guarantee optimum lateral stiffness. High stiffness to weight ratio results from the tapered head tube with integrated headset. The high tech and lightweight RockShox Sid RL 29 air fork comes with Motion Control, PushLoc, 100mm of travel and a QR15 Maxle through-axle. Formula RC Tune hydraulic disc brakes deliver outstanding brake performance. SRAM X.0 2x10 components are known for fast, precise shifting. The DT SWISS CSW MA 2.9 wheelset is easy to accelerate. Lightweight but stiff cockpit components like the Syntace F149 stem and the 720mm CUBE Race Flat Bar Pro complete the performance package.

Strength:

Really light compared to other bikes in the price range, great components, all XT,
All internal routing for cables and lines.
29 inch wheels are great!

Weakness:

Matt finish will be hard to keep clean

I just got it this weekend and put an hour on it Saturday and two on it Sunday. I really like the carbon frame. It is stiff and responsive. Pretty rough on the bones compared to my CUBE AMS 130 full suspension. I got it to ride on the road, hard pack and cross country, but got in to some rough stuff this morning and missed my full suspension. My first encounter with a 29er, I like the big wheels rolling over terrain but it is not as nimble as a 26 or 650b. Climbs long hills like a champ. Very happy after the first couple rides but still nervous with the carbon frame.
