CUBE's engineers took everything they'd learned from building fast, lightweight mountain bike frames and put it to good use in the Editor. The frame is built with torsional rigidity “ and therefore efficient pedalling “ in mind. We used double-butted aluminium tubes and our advanced mechanical forming process to put material where it's needed for strength and remove it where possible to save weight. An eccentric bottom bracket enables belt tension to be adjusted easily, and ultra-neat mudguard and luggage carrier mounts enable the easy addition of these accessories without spoiling the clean lines of your bike. And the sleek, lightweight fork performs as good as it looks, giving precise and nimble steering and a surprising degree of comfort on rough city streets.When we set out to design the Editor, we had a very simple goal in mind: make the ultimate urban assault bike. Ultimate looks, ultimate comfort, ultimate speed, ultimate practicality. That's why we started with our advanced aluminium double-butted frame with a sleek rigid fork and hidden rack and mudguard mounts. Lightweight, incredibly efficient and superbly practical, like all our frames it's been through our 24/7 torture-testing lab to verify its strength, durability and safety. We didn't compromise on the transmission, selecting Shimano's superb Alfine 11-speed hub gear and combining it with a Gates belt drive for silent running and practical low-maintenance performance. The eccentric bottom bracket makes belt tension adjustment a cinch and we guarantee you won't miss an oily chain. Powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes offer reliable stopping even when the weather isn't cooperating. There are even two bottle cage mounts, so you can stay hydrated if your Editor tempts you into a longer excursion at the weekends. Because after all, one of the beauties of an ultra-efficient urban bike is that it also makes it easier to escape the city...
