What’s not to love about this Bike.  Perfectly at home in every situation, whether its an XC trail ride,  hitting the UK DH Centres or going all out against the clock in the local NDH Racing series, the Stereo 150 SL is some machine.

The Stereo 150 C:62 SL is not only my first full Carbon Bike but also the first 29r I have ridden. It is also the first bike I have ridden and felt instantly comfortable, it fit perfectly and even on my first ride it felt like I had been riding this bike for months. The Stereo 150 gives you instant confidence to be able to just enjoy your riding. 

.

Apart from a saddle swap, changing the grips to Ergon GD1 Factory and some small aesthetic colour changes the bike is as it comes from Cube.  And I simply cannot fault any of its parts or spec. 

.

The SRAM GX Eagle™ 1x12 drivetrain with a huge 10-50T cassette to gets me up absolutely anything and I've always been a huge fan SRAM Code R brakes after running them on my DH bike for 2 years. The Rockshox Lyrik Fork is perfectly tuneable without being over complicated with its small bump compliance absolutely amazing, twinned with the Super Deluxe RC3 Rear shock this bike laps up almost any bump or hit you can throw at it.

The Stereo is one of those rare bikes that is truly versatile. All day rides can be handled as it's a lively ride uphill, and technical terrain is taken in its stride.  The Stereo 150 is an exceptional bike with a brilliant balance between climbing and descending.  Although not on the forefront of the progressive geometry trends it still manages to take on the hardest, steepest trails in style.

.

.

In my opinion, this is probably the best bike Cube have ever made and really puts them front and centre in the enduro bike market

.

I cannot recommend this bike enough
