Motobecane Fantom Cross Team Titanium vs. Specialized Tricross Comp? Either 2008 or 2009? Friend trying to decide between the two. Similarly priced.

Ah, the lure of Titanium... I think that's the one that would be calling to me...

I wouldn't be caught dead on a Motobecane.

but its titanium!! fit issues aside, i think it's his personal choice whether he wants a lesser known brand (with titanium frame) or a well known brand without it. if the name or paintjob bothers him, then dont get it. if the titanium frame for cheap is his main goal, then get it!
i have two off known brand roadbikes that i bought this year. Buying the off-brand bikes let me try out 105 and ultegra kits for the same price as the name brand bikes in the sora, tiagra range.
i think next year i'll try a pedal force carbon frame and swap the components over myself.

I don't think I even need to post....
Buy the bike, not the name.
