which one of these would you buy with your own hard earned cash? Road content!
Neither, I’d be going for a Cannondale if I was to buy a bike with that budget..
Better groupset than either of the cubes.Posted 3 years ago
There is also a Synapse Alloy 105 for 780ish that I looked at too.
Part of me says just buy the budget one, its lighter and more useful for longer rides than my current cxy bike. Ride it for a year, if I really get into it sell it then buy something more better. However part of me is saying – well if you are going to spend 500 then xyz bike is available for a bit more and its got better this and that bits on it! What I want to know really is what would you do and why??Posted 3 years ago
Following on from my cube sizing thread yesterday I was just wondering which one of these 2 would you buy and why really?
Cube Peloton Sora at £500
Cube Agree GTC Tiagra £800

I’d go for the CAAD8 105. Fantastic frame, good groupset, poor wheels. If you must buy Cube, then ten-speed Tiagra. It’s a very good groupset too and the wheels are better quality than the Cannondale. But the frame of the Cannondale is one of the best alloy frames around at any price.
We have a CAAD8 Tiagra that has been upgraded and raced successfully. It has a long headtube but still retains race geometry.Posted 3 years agoscandal42SubscriberArchibaldMember
I’m in the same boat and can’t decide between the caad 8 or Synapse linked or a rose sl-pro2000, a canyon roadlite al 6.0 or maybe build a genesis equilibrium or go cheaper whith a planet x rt58 tiagra.
Sorry to hijack the thread but you seem in the same decision process as my self.Posted 3 years agoTiRedMember
caad 8 or Synapse
Almost no difference. Synapse has a 1cm longer head tube, but the CAAD8 has a long headtube (15. cm in 54) and a high top to raise the bars further. CAAD8 has half a degree steeper head angle, which will give it a 0.5cm longer top tube and slightly faster steering. CAAD8 wheelbase is slightly shorter for better handling. But to be honest, you won’t really notice the difference.
Pick on colour, or Synapse if you need really high bars.Posted 3 years ago
