WOW!

"I Saw The Funk,and It is Good!"


WOW! I found a site called bikesutra.com which says it lists bike companies A-Z. After sifting through 15-20 websites, I got frustrated because outside of the different Head badge styles that various companies have, their bicycles all pretty much looked the same. Please understand that I am not being a ‘Hater’. The simple truth is that I long to see something that emotionally moves me in bike design. I saw the Funk years ago when I was a kid in the form of the legendary ‘Pee Wee Herman’, I saw it again 18 years later with Schwinn’s latest incarnation of the ‘Sting Ray’. But I haven’t really seen anything that has emotionally moved me until I came across a Swedish Company called ‘Cube’.

I believe this company is from Denmark. I am not saying that all or even 4 of their designs float my boat, but I found 2 that have just freaked me out! Below is a design with the hottest paint I have ever seen. Ladies and gentlemen, introducing 'Glam Rock' by 'Cube'.
I am not going to write about the gadgets these bicycles have because gadgets don’t interest me, it is the simplicity of the paint, contours, rims, seat etc that excite me. The above Mountain Bike has a ‘Cheetah’ style paint job, not just on the frame, but on the rims to! That my friends is ‘Urban Funk’.

The funk is such that I can just sit back and stare at this ignorance for hours. You all know by now how I give kudos. I do so once again by saying “I saw funk, and it was good.” As I wrap this up, Cube also produced a very nice what they are calling a ‘Tour Bike’. I am from the Old School and where I come from they call these ’10 Speeds’. Nevertheless, this bicycle is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Pearl-White Paint with snake skin accents, light gray & white tires and rims! This bicycle is on a whole other level, just magnificent! Visit the site at http://www.cube-bikes.de/. These are what, properly priced, would be an absolute HIT in Urban Areas. Cube has definitely paid a visit to ‘Planet Funk’.
