I am curious, you're sending back a CUBE Kathmandu Hybrid Pro 625 but considering buying another. What was wrong with the first Cube, wrong size?Hi friends,
I didn't solve my problems, so tomorrow I will send my CUBE Kathmandu Hybrid Pro 625 2021 to the seller and he will give me my money back. Now I have to choose the same e-kike or another one.
I am considering buying the same Cube or Cannondale Tesoro Neo X2 Remixte.
This time I don't want to be wrong.

I can get tne Cannondale with 100 euro more than Cube.
Which of the two would you buy?
I always suggest test riding before buying. Minor changes in geometry can make a big difference in fit, esp as we get older... Are either of these bikes in stock at a dealer near you?
In addition to the differences Stefan points out I would mention the gearing on the bikes is different enough to be worth noting. They both use a 38t front chain ring. The Cube has a 10-speed 11-46t cassette while the Tesoro has an 11-speed 11-51. The 5 tooth difference in the cassette will feel like another lower gear in the Tesoro making it better at climbing the steepest hills, if this is a concern for you.
I also see that the Cube has QR skewers both front and rear while the Tesoro uses through axles. The through axles will make a noticeable difference in now the bike handles at higher speeds. I'm comfortable riding my Vado at downhill speeds that I would never do with my earlier ebikes that had QR skewers.
BTW- I especially like the low step through frame option for the Cube. We older guys sometimes have an issue swinging over rack mounted bags that you younger fellas can still clear.
Personally I'm leaning towards the Tesoro for the stability of the through axles and the hill climbing gearing. I'd need to do a test ride to be sure!
