Cube Litening HPT on the floor

Yes it has finally arrived. The 2009 Cube Titanium Litening HPT. This full titanium frame bike has to bee seen in the flesh to be believed. Full Ultegra SL groupset, compact crank, and red Fulcrum 7's. Nice touches include the all white Easton EC90 SL full carbon fork and the Schwalbe Ultremo R tyres with Cube branding. More details can be seen on the Cube bikes website.
We have a 56cm demonstrator on the floor for immediate test-rides. 
RRP will be $6895.00 with very limited numbers available in the early shipment.

Project Cecil Walker

Great old frame and wheelset I picked up through the shop.
Cliff dropped in this old Cecil Walker path racer frame some time ago and I was always on the lookout for some parts to suit. Found this great set of Fiamme rims laced to a set of red Airlite hubs from Steve in Yarra Junction. 36 hole front, 40 hole rear, tied and soldered about 40 years ago. As you can see in the pics they have seen plenty of glue in their lifetime.
The frame has some pretty cool lugs and fork crown to suit. No resto on this one, more of a rat bike I think.
