BikesDirect is a touchy subject around here...in part because they spend a great deal of time shilling these boards. If you do a search, most of the locked threads are on bikesdirect/motobecane, but most of the memorable threads have been moderated & or wiped. Most of the remaining posts are good advice.
That looks really sweet. I thought they were the same Martec frame as the Scattantte bikes, but the Motobecane frame looks much nicer IMHO. I'm sure I will be called a shill now for saying a BD bike looks nice.covenant said:I'll use this bikesdirect thread as an opportunity to post pics of the sexiest bike they sell:
