2016 Cube Stereo 160 Trail Motion Enduro/Trail/All mountain Bike RRP £2699 It's time to move on my beloved Stereo. Really enjoyed riding this bike, its strikes a great balance between fun and agile and also capability as an Enduro bike. I work in a bike shop so try to move my bikes on fairly soonish so as to protect my investment if you see what I mean, so i'm only selling this one because I've got a new one and it is genuinely a bit sad as i've had so much fun with it. Its been well looked after and is in good condition - the attached photographs are in its for sale state. There is as you would expect some cosmetic damage to the paint work here and there, i've tried to show the worst of it in the photos. The specification is: FRAME HPA Ultralight, Advanced Hydroform, Triple Butted, ETC 4-Link, ISCG Mount, AXH, Boost148 COLOR bermudablue´n´flashorange SIZE 18" - For reference i'm 170cm and it fit me very well with only about 14mm of the reverb sticking out of the seat tube. FORK Rock Shox Pike RC Solo Air, 15QR Maxle, Tapered, 160mm - In the last month that I was still riding the bike I had the forks sent off to the SRAM tech centre where they did a full service and also replaced the stanctions/crown steerer. So the fork is in very close to new condition. SHOCK Fox Float DPS Performance Elite, 200x57mm, Open(Adjustable)/Medium/Firm Mode, EVOL Air Sleeve - Prior to putting the bike up for sale i noticed a bit of play in the shock - I sent it off to mojo/silverfish and had a full service on it. They replaced the bushings and a bunch of other stuff. This cost me £99 and i haven't ridden it since so again like the fork the shock is in excellent working order and won't need a service for a good while yet. I'll also mention that I've replaced all but the horst link bearings in the last 2 months or so as routine service with Endure suspension specific bearings - as such there is no play or anything nasty going on, just plush active suspension! SHOCK HARDWARE Top: 30x8mm, Bottom: 22x8mm HEADSET FSA 1.5E ZS, Tapered, Top Zero-Stack 1 1/8" (OD 44mm), Bottom Zero-Stack 1 1/2" (OD 56mm) - I've done the bearings in the headset a couple of times in the time I've owned the bike. I think i used m-part bearings. Anyway, its running smooth. STEM Race Face Ride 35 HANDLEBAR Race Face Ride 35 Riser, 760mm GRIPS CUBE Fritzz Grip, 2-Clamp - never used these, took them off on a day one and set them aside. REAR DERAILLEUR Sram NX, 11-Speed - the original derailleur packed in after about 9 months so i put this one on. Note it may be a few grams heavier than the original but i does have the updated clutch, which is what failed on the original. Also note the Hope blue and orange jockey wheels! SHIFTERS Sram XO1 Trigger BRAKE SYSTEM Sram Guide R, Hydr. Disc Brake (180/180) - the levers here are also relatively new, about 2 months - warranty repair from Sram tech. CRANKSET Race Face Turbine Cinch, 32T, 175mm, Oversized Aluminum Axle, Boost CASSETTE Sram XG-1175, 10-42 CHAIN Shimano 11 speed WHEELSET DT CSW EM 2.7 Straightpull Wheelset, 28/28 Spokes, 15QR / Boost148 X12, 584x25C Tubeless-Ready Rim - these wheels have only seen about half as much action as the rest of the bike as bought another set later on. I have replaced the axle bearings and free hub bearings in the rear for the sale. FRONT TIRE Schwalbe Hans Dampf Kevlar 2.35, TrailStar, Tubeless Easy - very little use, swapped out early on, in great condition with lots of tread REAR TIRE Schwalbe Rock Razor Kevlar 2.35, PaceStar, Tubeless Easy - same story as the front! SADDLE SDG Circuit MTN SEAT POST Rock Shox Reverb Stealth 31.6mm, 430x150mm SEATCLAMP CUBE Screwlock, 34.9mm WEIGHT 12.9 kg - This is the weight that Cube publish on the spec sheet. I actually weighed it after i built it up from new and the weight was spot on! This is also pretty darn light for a bike of this calibre! Extras Specialized chain tool topcap Any questions please just send me a text or PM. I can post in the UK if ness but it will be £25 extra. Collection around SN7 or OX28 preferred Paypal or cash would be best.
