    Why carbon fiber? It's hardly the choice for budget-minded riders.

    Hi ward. If you use the search function, there are several threads on BikesDirect or BD or Motobecane...you get the idea. It is an understatement to say that opinions tend to vary.

    But if you read a few of these threads you should have a pretty good idea of what you're getting yourself into.

    Check the Road Cycling forum... There are a couple of active threads. Also BikesDirect has a dozen special deals going now for Bikeforums.net readers. It is a sticky.

    Why carbon? Buy local--it's more fun.
