A couple years ago I was looking for a bike and motobecane had amazing prices. Now I'm shopping for a road bike and took a look at their website thinking I could find some good deals. Wow, I can get better deals at my lbs. Why did the components they spec their bikes out with go down the tubes? $1400 for an a Motobocane Grand Record? Aluminum frame with Tiagra/Sora componants and Tektro brakes. I can get a better speced bike, 2010 Cannondale CAAD9 5, with 105 componants for $1150 at my lbs with a professional bike fit included. Don't mean to be so negative but I was kind of shocked at the prices. Am I over looking something that makes the Grand Record so expensive? I'll admit I'm not expert so maybe I am overlooking something.
