    Very cool! What's the thinking behind the oval chain ring? I don't think I've seen that on a MTB before.

    According to the bumpf ....It maximises the part of the stroke where power is produced (wider part of the oval) and minimize resistance where it isn't (narrower part of the oval). It makes the spin cycle a lot smoother and is easier on legs while climbing.

    It certainly smooths out the way the powers gets put down especially on loose/steeper ground. For off-road I swap it for a 32t oval

    Ta!

    That's similar to the logic for having them on TT isn't it? Only there it's for speed not climbing.

    I know im very late with this....

    I think you put this bike up for sale or have already sold it if i remember correctly. But its a smashing looking bike.I love how you have just colour co-ordinated the sh!t out of the bike from the rims and wheels all the way to the bar-tape.

    Spectacular looking bike. I must applaud you for your effort!

  7. Wow! Your garden is really coming along. Mr Toad is still frozen in the soil, in mine.(My frost line can extend to 40 inches, btw). Nice looking aluminum bicycle, I admire the adjustable stem .

    Why thank you very much Monsieur le Roubaix Cube


    Not sold the bike or ever thought of doing so TBH.

    It is a bit "in your face" styling wise for most, but I do like to charge things up.a bit.

    Just bought a rolling frame from a good fellow of CC Manor which I intend to build up for Our Kid using the groupset from the Cube.

    The Cube will go into hibernation until I decide what to do with it next. It will remain in the small fleet & be treated to a new groupset, Ultegra 11 speed maybe, but I am sure the wheels won't take 11 sprockets.
