Bikesdirect reviews

Does anyone out there have any first hand experience with bikesdirect, particularly the Motobecane Le Champion SL. The reviews I have read are all over the place with no real consensus. Also, if I ride a 52 Cannodale, would I need to get a 54 in the Motobecane? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

I recently purchased a bike from them, a steel frame Mercier Galaxy as a 2nd commuter. I had the bike in about 6 business days. I had to simply install the stem, handlebars, pedals, front brake, seat post and hook up the front derailer cable. From there I had to tweak both derailers a little bit & true both wheels slightly. I am very pleased with the bike & will probably purchase from them again sometime soon.

As far as what size bike, e-mail them your measurements. Give them your inseam length while in your cycling shoes, height etc. Also make sure to ask if you can return the bike & exchange it if you happen to get the wrong size bike.
