Indeed the Moterra is an love or loath design yet the low centre of gravity and short chain-stays made it very playful and stable in the air and something i grew to love. After some investment into better brakes and a change of contact points it became a pretty nice ride and great fun to throw around even over some of the nastiest terrain. Unfortunately some Ass****! stole it while i couple months back and now I’ve got the CUBE as its replacement as it was the best i could find with the stock shortages of the last few months.I used to think the Cannondale was the devils spawn, but I now find myself having something of a soft spot for it, it had some very clever design elements and some real though into weight placement etc.
If you set aside the motor, is the cube a better bike to ride? I suspect the cube is heavier?
