Review – Cube AMS 100 Comp

Review – Cube AMS 100 Comp

The German brand Cube are slowly setting up a UK network of dealers and with the bikes I've seen so far I've been impressed with the build, ride and value for money they offer over established brands in the UK. Cube offer a 'choose your own finishing parts' options. You pick from either a frame and fork with headset and stem, or a complete bike, which you then choose the groupset, fork and brakes you want.
