Size? (Frame, clothing, wheel size etc. You can pick 3)
Collection only

Firstly the negative: it had a snapped mech-hanger incident in 2018 that gouged a bit of carbon from the rear dropout and chipped some paint off the drive side seat stay (see photos – excuse the foggy old phone camera).  However being thru-axle, it’s a massive chunk of carbon used for the dropout so it is still sound and has been ridden plenty, and clamped into a turbo plenty since then.

Full carbon frame, carbon/alloy fork, flat mount calipers, thru-axle (142×12 & 100×12) and 2×11 speed Shimano hydraulic disc set up (the fugly RS505 ones, but they work just great). It comes as per the stock 2016 spec, with the exception of the rear mech (R7000 model in place of the 5800 that exploded), the 3T Ergosum bars (40cm) and spesh alias 143 saddle with a little hole in (I’d like to keep this for my arse-friendly stash unless it’s needed!).  Original fulcrum race 77 wheels, but I’ve removed the garish logo stickers so they’re a bit more subdued, only done ~250 miles before swapping out, they’ve lived in the loft since, bearings all perfect and they’re true as you’d expect from nearly new wheels. Tyres, tubes and brake discs also as stock (25mm and 160mm respectively).  No pedals, but happy to stick some rusty spds or flats on for a test ride or just for starters.

It has just been serviced: new chain and a barely used 11-32 cassette (only ~250 dry/clean miles as per wheels), all new cables (rock’n’roll lubed!), new L02A front brake pads (rears have loads of life left), and brakes bled with fresh shiny-pink stuff.  In addition to this, it had a new press-fit Shimano BB last year.  I’ve had most parts off and on for preventative greasing/checking so it’s been well looked after bar the faux-pas with the rear mech. So properly serviced and well looked after (can’t promise my torque wrench doesn’t need calibrating mind….).

Size is 58cm, but most tend to agree cube’s come up a bit small. It’s worth noting that it’s got a ‘relaxed’ geometry with a tall front end, therefore worth checking measurements to gauge fit for you (stack is 610mm, reach 388mm).  See for the full details. Stock stem is 110mm, based on reach I thought I’d need a 120mm but those brake levers seem to add 5-10mm reach compared to regular mechanical brifters I’ve had before. There’s a moderate stack of spacers above the headset top cap (itself quite a tall cone) fork steerer never cut.

Nearest equivalent new is £1600, but that’s now got a full carbon fork and proper nice 105 hydraulic levers. Seem to go on ebay as stock for around 650-1000 (the latter may be lockdown exuberance!) so asking £600 in light of the damage – collection from Bristol, may consider other options for meet up/delivery, but will not post.
