Jon Woodhouse

Jon has been a lover of riding bikes in dirt for well over half of his life now. After stints working in bike shops, spannering bikes and guiding people down Alpine mountains, he found his way into the mountain bike media and he's been there ever since, having edited websites and magazines. He now heads up the whole shebang at off-road.cc. He like messing about with tyres, tweaking suspension and generally playing with anything cool, new and techy. When it comes to riding, he likes steep and technical descents and big days out with friends, getting away from it all. Drop bars or risers - it's all good...

458mm reach on the 18" frame? Is that correct?

 

Sorry - my bad. It's 458mm for the 20" frame, but that has an actual seat tube length of 18.5", so it compares well with most modern 160mm enduro bikes that tend to hover around 460mm for a Large.

Heheh. It's definitely a nice looking thing, more so in the flesh. Just need to get hold of one to ride now really!

Is it just me or does that battleship/ undercoat grey and orange bike look awsome? Looking forward to a test here Jon. Cube have always been on my radar and be keen to see what you think.
