Cube Travel SL RF anthrazit green – Trekking BikeOur Travel SL RF is a very special example of a purist sports tourer.
This light bike for athletic touring and everyday use can be updated with a belt drive instead of the standard chain. As it is, it comes with a low maintenance Shimano 8-speed Alfine gear hub and hydraulic disc brakes. This is a bike that will take you safely and comfortably anywhere, any time of the year.
The rear triangle of the aluminium frame features our new Split&Slide dropouts. These allow the frame to be opened to fit a belt drive. The precision forged dropouts can also be slid horizontally via two set screws which allow the chain - or belt - tension to be set easily and precisely. The classic and elegant frame is built from double butted aluminium tubes and is very stiff to keep the chain alignment correct even under load. The cables run internally within the down tube, guaranteeing a very low need for maintenance.
Perfect shifting performance in any weather - the reliable and low maintenance Shimano Alfine 8-speed gear hub is a first class product. As are the brakes - Shimano´s BR-M355 hydraulic disc brakes slow you down reliably in traffic, even when fully loaded. The sensor-controlled Busch&Müller Eyc T LED lighting system automatically switches from daytime to night-light and the View rear light features a SafeStop function for extra visibility when stopping. Schwalbe´s Marathon Supreme tires maintain contact to the ground and are easily summarized: Smooth rolling and great comfort.

Harmit K.Comment:Excellent value for money - Fully equipped for year round, all weather use with minimal maintenance. Very fast delivery at reasonable cost from bike-discount.de to England. I have converted mine to belt drive so that I can commute in work clothes without worrying about oil on my trousers. If Cube bring out an 11 speed Alfine version at a reasonable price I'll definitely be buying it.
