Hi everyone,

Just about to but my first road bike and very interested in this bike.

http://www.cyclesurgery.com/cube-bikes-agree-gtc-race-compact-2013/road-bikes/bikes-components-bikewear/fcp-product/46919

Can anyone advice on this bike to wether it will be ok for triathlons and as a first road bike? ANy advice of any other bikes for a similiar price?

Mate of mine bought the Cube Agree a couple of years ago but the Alu one. It's a great bike and he has used it in a few tris and loves it. Yours is not a bad spec, nice wheels (I really like Easton kit) and what appears a slid groupset, nice bum park and top tyres. They ride nicely. I have a Cube MTB and it's fabulous, top build quality. 

Usual advice, fit fit fit fit fit. If it doesn't fit, it's a waste of money. I think cyclesurgery do do fits so get one first.

Quite a few on here rate Planet X, the Boardman serious bikes as well. All that sort of moolar. Also, check out Raleigh. Believe it or not , they are making some fine carbon rides about that money and you might get a deal as they are not generally on the radar.

That's a SOLID groupset!

yeah i have done a little research and its a good group set. Looked at a few bikes with the 105 set for around £1000 but thought id have to upgrade the groupset quick if i wanted to do lots of tri's.

Yes they do a fit so will have to pop up and have ago, i believe you have to pay the full amount tho for them to get the bike in.

Usually will get the cost of the bikefit knocked off the bike if it's a reasonably basic one. You will probably fine tune it anyway
