4 reasons not to buy

  • The Cube Attain has a press-fit bottom bracket. Press-fit bottom brackets are harder to maintain and notorious for developing a creaking noise.
  • Some experts found the bike’s front end wandered through tight and technical terrain.
  • The 72.5° head tube angle is too relaxed to utilize the Attain as a race bike, as it limits its speed and slows its maneuvering ability.
  • The bike has clearance for tires up to 28mm. Some test riders desired greater clearance for wider tires.

Bottom line

The Cube Attain is an affordable endurance road bike. The geometry of the bike is relaxed, when compared to many other road bikes, with it’s 72.5° head tube angle. This limits its ability to utilize it as a race bike. With nine models available, there are many builds available to riders with carbon or aluminum frames. Some testers were disappointed by the press-fit bottom bracket and the front end's tendency to wander through tight terrain. Overall, this is a great entry-level road bike. Those looking for a race bike should look elsewhere.
