    Default Any cyclists on here? Need some advice before tomorrow

    Hey guys
    I've decided to take advantage of my company's bike to work scheme, my only downfall is that the deadline is tomorrow, so basically I'm after some quick advice?

    I'm trying to choose a bike and I've had my eye on the CUBE ACID

    Has anybody had any experience with CUBE bikes?
    I know there are models above and below the ACID
    Are they worth getting? Are you getting better value for a lower or higher spec model?

    Just after your thoughts/opinions?? Cheers

    done the same scheme myself but didnt get a cube i got a diamond back response and put semi slick tyres on (recommend doing this as the drag i was getting with the chunky tyres was losing my around 4/6 mph) its a hard tail with full hydrolic brakes with disc's 27 speed
    its a really nice bike but i cycle 7 miles each way and may change it next year to a hybrid as will get better speed from it

    have a look on bike radar website very good for reviews

    Make sure you consider what you are going to use it for. Get the best frame you can with the worst kit. The kit will wear out and need replacing anyway, so can be upgraded at this point.

    Also do you knwo what your final value percentage will be? Last time I looked at the cycle to work scheme it was no longer worth doing due to the changes in rules
