Cube Agree GTC Race 2009 carbon road bike, 56cm, Campagnolo Chorus. This is my Cube Agree GTC Race, which I bought new in 2009. It has a carbon fibre frame, a carbon Dedacciai Black Blade fork with aluminium steerer, and a Campagnolo Chorus 11 speed groupset. The wheels were upgraded soon after purchase to Mavic Ksyrium Elites, which still have plenty of life left in their rims, the saddle was swapped for a Fizik Arione, and the handlebar and stem were both upgraded to a PRO Vibe S aluminium ‘bar and PRO PLT stem.Campagnolo Chorus 11 speed had just been launched when this bike was bought, and it’s specced with 172.5mm carbon cranks, which aren’t scuffed, an unusual, but very useful, 52/39 chain ring combination, aluminium and carbon rear derailleur, and 11-25 cassette. The skeleton brakes look great and function superbly, the carbon brake levers are unmarked, and the ergonomic Ergopower rubber hoods are in great condition.It still has 23mm Schwalbe Ultremo ZX clincher tyres fitted, with inner tubes, which are quite rideable, but would benefit from a swap to some new 25mm tyres for peace of mind, and improved grip and comfort. There is room within the brake calipers for 25mm rubber, as I’ve used other wheels with that tyre width fitted on the bike. There are mounts for two bottle cages, but not for mudguards or a rack. The handlebar is 42cm wide, and the stem is 120mm long.The bottom bracket is threaded, with external cups, and is easy to maintain. The bike has always been well looked after, and always kept indoors, with minimal wet use. After regular, mainly weekend, use for the first 2.5 years, the bike has only been ridden 20 or so times since the end of 2011, and stored hanging on the wall. There are no scratches, chips or other damage, with the only blemish being where the original anti chain suck plate, on the chain stay behind the chain rings, came unstuck and dropped off years back. It left some adhesive foam backing residue on the stay, which could be removed.The bike as shown weighs 7.58kg, which is still competitive alongside current road bikes, and at the time of purchase cost £2300. It rides very well, and still has a good turn of speed, but as mentioned, would benefit from a 25mm tyre upgrade. The gears all shift as they should, and the brakes are positive, with plenty of power. I’m 5’10” / 178cm, and prefer a fairly long position on the bike, which this bike is set up for. It would suit a rider up to 6ft / 183cm tall, and possibly also someone a little shorter, by fitting a shorter stem.From Cube’s catalogue at the time :Gran Turismo Composite Modular Fibre Tech Monocoque frame.RFR (Ready For Race) geometry with stretched seating position for maximum speed and agile handling.Optimised oversized tubes for ideal strength to weight ratio.Super-rigid carbon dropouts.Frame Save System – replaceable rear mech hanger.If you have any further questions, please ask.Condition is Used.
