Hey guys
I could do with a little help here, I cant decide on which model of the Cube Stereo HPC Team to purchase, the 140 or 160.
I will not be using for major jumps or too severe downhill terrain, but regular Climbing on fire roads & moderate downhill trails through forestry.
The main thing other than the extra suspension travel, is the 140 has 29” wheels & the 160 has 27.5” wheels, both are running the same make wheels & tyres.
Will I notice much difference between the two bikes, I don’t want to overdue the suspension & not use the extra travel of the 160.
Hopefull someone can help before I press the button.

Tbh if it was me I would get the longer travel bike as I like a bit more jumps etc, but then you have the larger 29" wheels on 140 so you'll have more clearance, so it's a difficult one tbh, me I would get 160 as will be better on rough stuff

Given the type of riding your planning , the 140 is all you need.
That said my son rides a 140 and does DH blacks , jumps etc. They’re very capable.
I ride the HPC TM 160, they’re great bikes ??
