I have a 60 yr old friend that is purchasing his first roadbike. He is very frugal and is thinking about an online purchase of a new Motobecane Cafe Latte? bike. The list price on it is 900.00 and he says the online vendor will sell for 400.00 + shipping...
Is this a good bike? Why is it so inexpensive. Does anyone know about this brand??
I suggested that he should buy his 1st bike from a dealer in the area since he has no experience at all with road bikes. He will have to assemble it when it arrives and as far as I can tell, he is not that mechanical, but as I said, he is very frugal.
here is a link
Any input would be appreciated
