Neil's Cube road bike
Following several training runs with Fraser and Ron for the 2011 E2E+3P trip I decided to ditch the mountain bike and invest in a good road bike. With the narrow tyres, mudguards and other paraphernalia the mountain bike was effectively out of action for off-road trips. It wasn’t ideally suited for road use and I was struggling to keep up with Fraser and Ron on their touring bikes. Consequently, I decided to invest in a good carbon fibre road bike – a Cube GTC Pro. I fitted this with race blade mudguards and a lightweight pannier rack by made by Axiom designed to fit onto the brake post and axle spindle. This I felt was a suitable setup for multi-day tours while remaining a capable single day road bike.
