This bike comes custom built with an almost full Shimano 105 groupset, with the exception of an upgraded Ultegra rear mech. The bike features a number of excellent upgrades throughout including bars, saddle, bar tape and brake calipers. The biggest and most expensive upgrade comes in the form of a pair of fabulous Fulcrum Racing 3 factory wheels that make the bike perform much better with faster rolling resistance. The bike is in good condition with a few marks on the frame and forks, however any shortcomings the bike has are far outweighed by the upgrades.
It would make for a great Sportive or Club bike, that’s built for both comfort and speed.

CUBE Axial Pro GTC ‘Pro’ “Custom Built” Women’s / Ladies Carbon road bike
Carbon Fibre forks
53` ( Medium ) Frame – Suit 5`4 / 5`7
This is another one of our superb women’s custom builds.
The ‘Axial’ is the women’s specific model in the Cube range that they call the WLS, meaning Women’s Like Series’. The range covers both aluminium and carbon bikes all of which have different spec’s.
The GTC versions are made of carbon that are split into different categories dependant on the specification. Our particular model is the ‘Pro’ version that has a predominantly Shimano 105 groupset, with the exception of a Shimano Ultegra rear mech. The bike has the added benefit of a triple chainset thus allowing a huge range of gears, ideal for any terrain.
As with most of our bikes we have custom built it by removing most of the poorer quality parts and upgrading them all with better ones, thus making the ownership of the bike that much better. The refurbishment includes cable replacing as well as a full service.
The bike now has an almost full Shimano 105 groupset, with the brake calipers matching the rest of the spec, as well as an OE Shimano 105 chainset. The finishing kit is almost all from USA brand Easton, apart from the Scor handlebars that we have fitted thus allowing a more ergonomic fit for the rider. The brand new Selle Royale saddle and new (white) bat tape compliment the build.
The most significant and eye-catching upgrade are the super quality Fulcrum Racing 3 factory wheels, complete with Schwalbe Lugano tyres. These wheels are an excellent accompaniment as they match the build and offer speed and comfort to the bike. These wheels give the bike another dimension as they offer speed on the flat, which compliments the overall characteristics of the bike. They always get great reviews and roll effortlessly. ( RRP – £500 upgrade )
