    How are you getting on with your Reaction Race 500 ?

    Seriously looking at a Cross Hybrid 400 for Mrs Ridgeway, 18kgs when the battery is removed is a big appeal !

    Just an update on this thread. Just to say I am so happy with this bike. I have had it for a while now so it’s done some miles but not enough as work got in the way. We are in spain at the moment and the wife wanted to go out on the bikes for a short hop. Benicarlo to Peniscola, only twelve miles all flat so I rode with no power on, she was on her Freego but not bike fit so was on leval three. I would recommend Cube bikes 100%.

    We love ours for track and easy single track riding. I'm a bit wary of the weight of mine on anything very technical but Martin doesn't have that problem.

    We've found we are riding three times the distance on these bikes in a similar riding time to traditional mountain bikes, so so much scope for recce-ing new routes.

    Wouldn't be without them now.

    My wifes Cube Cross Hybrid has some 700km on it now although it's used 5 days p/wk for the dog rides. I think my wife still feels it her most prized possession !!!

    Really nice bikes and ours isn't too heavy with the battery out.

    I was riding mine with the battery in stilll. It was just a challenge to myself, battery off and in the same gear. My legs were burning though at the end after the 12 miles, on the way back the wind was against us.

    I rode mine on an undulating circuit around a lake in Norway using a combination of battery and leg power. I got 41km on the display before losing the first battery segment. Very pleased with that.

    Good ride around the reservoir above Villajoyosa today, I love it up there and the bike likes it also, such a difference to last year on my old bike.

    I've just got the Cube Acid 400.Absolutely love it averaging 18miles a day.where I live is very hilly and I was forever pushing my old iron up the hills.It got where it was no longer enjoyable to go out.Now the only thing that keeps me in is crappy weather. Some say it's cheating but I have never been fitter,I don't use power all the time but those bloody hills are a pleasure to ride up now with a big grin on my face.Ok they may be more expensive but I would recommend to anyone who is struggling to get fit but likes cycling to invest in a healthy way of getting about.plus knowing you can go further with the knowledge that a bit of electric will get you home comfortably.
