The Beast

The Beast

I like to go just about anywhere a bike could go. Tarmac, gravel roads, jeep tracks. And to get there, I figured I needed a fast bike to go the distance, and big tyres to cope with bad roads. Hence my creation; the beast

 

Frame: Cube Aim Pro 29er

Fork: Exotic aluminium rigid

Wheels: shimano lx hub, DT Swiss Alpine iii spokes, rigida sputnik rims

Drivetrain: shimano slx 2×9

Cranks: Shimano FC MT60 with 36 and 24 tooth chainrings

Brakes: Shimano LX V-brakes

Headset: Cane Creek 40

Stem: Xtreme Pro High Rise 40 (80mm)

Bar: Deda RHM01

Brake Lever: Tektro RL520

Gear Lever: Shimano Dura Ace 7700 9 speed (rear derailleur indexed, fron derailleur friction)

Bottom Bracket: square tapered 68mm case, 127,5 axle length

Seat: Specialized Henge

 

With the Cube frame I found a frame that is both light, cheap and versatile. It can take a rear rack, V-brakes as well as disc brakes. For all other parts, I have chosen tough over light, and simple over complicated. For me it is the perfect adventure bike.
