.: Giorgio's Cube Reaction Race Line



I felt the urge to start mountainbiking again and because my Scott Yecora MTB was still my "mountainbike which should not be used for mountainbiking" I decided to search for a good second hand MTB. Although this would probably be a temporary bike it naturally had to answer to certain criteria such as my specific color scheme I try to follow and it should be well equipped.  After some weeks of searching on various online auction websites I found a Cube Reaction Race Line which answered to my prerequisites.
