I stopped into a LBS today and found a very nice looking hardtail by Motobecane. For $995 you get the following: XTR rear derailleur, LX front derailler and shifters, Avid Single Digit 7 brakes and levers, LX hubs, Truvativ Stylo Team SL cranks and bottom bracket, XT rear cassette, and a RST Aerosa-Bas fork. The frame is Kinesium 6000 series aluminum and the whole package weighs less than 21 lbs. The frame looks very well made and the company has a good warranty. Anybody have one of these or heard good or bad things about the brand? The tires and seat suck, but for the price those can be upgraded.
