Strengths:    Great components, light, seat stays minimize vibration

Weaknesses:    pedals. May want to upgrade the wheels eventually.

Bottom Line:   
Excellent purchase. I have had this bike for two seasons and it has been a dream. I must have tried 6-8 bikes before purchasing the Sprint. I was a bit apprehensive about purchasing online but based on my experience I would do it again. Have ridden several centuries and countess hill climbs without issue. The bike is light and the seat stays minimize vibration. I replaced the pedals immediately but rode the bike as is for the first year without issue. I have no complaints and would recommend bikesdirect.com to anyone looking for a great value.

Strengths:    Ultegra 6700 components, frame with carbon triangle and carbon fork, stellar looks, rides very nice - responsive and light.

Weaknesses:    Stock seat is too hard and does not break in very well (although this may be a personal preference). Even after 6 months of use, I could not survive longer than 1 hour on it. Replaced with Selle San Marco Aspid Arrowhead and now I am riding 2.5-3 hours 4-5 times a week. Stock pedals are difficult to clip in (I am new to this, so this may be just me). Look Keo Classic work much better and have better contact with my feet. After a couple of fine adjustments for cleat position, this is a perfect setup for me.

Bottom Line:   
An orange 2010 "New Sprint" from bikesdirect.com. Arrived well packed, no damage. Easy to assemble (my first road bike ever!). 2 LBSs yield very poor results on fine adjustment. I spent several hours researching the internet for "road bikes how to", and then adjusted the derailers and the brakes myself. Everything works great. After riding it for a month I started Ultegra 6700 upgrade campaign - first put in the brakes (the stock Tektro R530's felt weak and flimsy), then BB and the crank-set (the stock Truvativ cranks and BB were fine, I just wanted to complete the group). Then I replaced the stock saddle with Selle San Marco Aspid Arrowhead (this was a lottery but I've got lucky) and Look Keo Classic pedals. I ordered 52cm frame for which the site says it gets 40cm handlebars. I am 5'6", 200lbs and have broad shoulders, so I was surprised the handlebars felt comfortable. Later I discovered they were actually 42cm. I ride about 120 miles a week (usually 30 miles per ride) - the bike handles very well, easy to control, fairly good road vibration isolation. Good quality so far. An excellent bike, well worth every penny and more - highly recommend! I would certainly praise bikesdirect.com for pricing and purchasing experience.

2010 MOTOBECANE SPRINT

Just received my beautiful new 2010 orange Sprint. Spent about 45 to put it together & adjust everything. Took it out for a quick spin and it seemed to be very responsive and quite comfortable. this seems to have been an excellent purchase considering an entry level Specialized or Giant or Trek were all about the same price BUT with much cheaper components & wheels. May change out pedals but other than that it's good to go right out of the box.

Crazy Sprint experience over the weekend

I just had to tell you guys about this one. On Saturday I got a text that I was over my minuets. So I went to the website to see what was going on. I was 150 minutes over. I get 400 a month and I use maybe 100 a month. I looked at the call log online and from the 15th to the 19th there was several h ... Read More »

Cav final sprint

Looking at the Head on View of the sprint, Cav's wheels were moving laterally in a very large way, as opposed to the others... I kinda believe Cav was riding sloppy and not getting the most benefit of his power... Or did the cobble stones, in the evening, present a factor ... or did he h ... Read More »

Ultegra Di2 Sprint and climbing remote shifter...... same thing?

I'm wanting to put a remote shifter on the top of my handlebars for climbing (to be mounted on the under-side of my handlebar tops). Is there a different remote for this purpose versus the "sprint" shifter that can be mounted down in the drops?Read More »
