    Or, how old is your bike and if it is old, what state is it in, and by that I mean do you look after it and is it like new. And are you happy with the component spec on it compared to new bikes of today?

    Hi Gunner

    I’m down to 2 bikes now (and thinking about selling the Cube LTD Pro hardtail).

    The LTD Pro is from 2012, I think, and while it’s “old”, I do still love it. It’s a 26er, so probably not much love for them out there now. Sadly I don’t use it now and even more sadly it only saw proper trails less than 10 times over the years, but it did see a lot of road miles so I did get a lot of use out of it until I bought road bikes…

    I sold my white/red Cube Peloton road bike (2014 model, I think) earlier in the year. I had comprehensively upgraded it in 2016, all self-built, with a *full* 2×11 Shimano 105 group-set including brakes and levers etc, Mavic Aksium wheels, and Mowa anodised jewellery. I still loved it when I put it up for sale, but since it was getting very little use I preferred to pass it on to someone who would get benefit and enjoyment from. (and I wasn’t going abroad much like I did in 2015-2016, when I took it away with me and left it at the place I was working at in Cyprus for lots of dry road miles in the hills and along the coast… so I didn’t need a 2nd road bike)

    My other bike is also a Cube – a dark carbon framed 2016 Agree with red/white accents (with Ultegra and Aksium wheels). I love this bike even though it’s 2016 “old” and can’t see me changing 🙂

    Well, my “newest” road bike is a 2015 model Cannondale Synapse, and I think my other road bikes date back to about 2011, but the problem is I have really looked after them and to me they are just like brand new, My MTBs are probably just as old, but again, very well looked after and not much used nowadays as I do a lot of road riding but still they feel, brand new, even though like yours, they are also running 26″ wheels.
