    CUBE or not. Guess the frame.

    Hello guys!

    I'm new here and i come to you with a question about a weird situation.

    I want to buy a second hand mountain bike that has CUBE written on it. I didn't find anywhere on the internet a cube bike with a frame like that but what i find is that the frame is very similar to a Yeti Ultimate frame but it's not exactly the same.

    The part that is holding the rear wheel is rounded on a Yeti frame and the "CUBE" is not rounded, it's "regular" if i may say so.

    The bike has a rigid frame and no fork suspension.

    My question is if you know a CUBE bike (or any other manufacturer) with the frame almost identical to a Yeti Ultimate frame?

    Thank you very much!

    Cube is a German brand. Been around a while, and the e-stay style bikes have been made by many companies. Back when they were the new hot thing, a lot of bike companies were making them.

    It's likely old enough that you'll just not be able to find much info on the web.

    You don't see as many e-stay bikes still around - the rear ends and BB area on nearly all of them were on the flexy side, which led to many of them cracking/breaking over the years. the ones that weren't this way were because they were ridiculously overbuilt to compensate.

    Hello and thank you very much guys for the help!

    It is not an e-stay as you will see.

    Here i made a quick representation of the bike frame (the shop was closed a few times i went to get a picture and i'm not waiting anymore):

    What brand can this be and what type of bike is it?

    Thank you very much!

    A custom bike perhaps... an actual picture of the bike would help...

    The front triangle is different... unique and the bottom bracket below the chainstays technically make it an e-stay frame.

    If this bike is for sale at a shop, why don't you ask them what it is?

    Problem solved. I get a reply from a CUBE partener and they saythat in the last 7 years, CUBE didn't made such a frame.

    I won't buy this bike.

    Thank you very much.
