Any other Bikes Direct Fly Ti MTB owners on BF?

I'm very happy with my Bikes Direct Motobecane Fly Ti hard tail, loving it more than ever after two months of regular use. Wondering if there are any other BF members who have received this bike and what your impressions are?

I was just making sure you don't feel homesick for your Road forum. We don't get all bent out of shape here over BikesDirect but I know over there shilling/complaining about them is as common as pointing at cracks in the road for you guys.

If you persist in your unprovoked attacks my responses will render this thread inappropriate for the family forum.

Why? Are you lonely?

I think this is some sort of conspiracy! You probably work for / own BD and are trying to show the world that a frail little 'Becane that can be monsterously ripped in-two by a defenseless little 80's Raleigh Pointe...is in fact...a phenom.

It's not gonna work! The Order of the Mountain Bike is much too strong for your futile attempts. We have "The Force", man! You can't compete with that.

And I thought they were idiots over in Road Cycling.

You MTB dudes have raised that bar. Kudos.

For the record, I advocate that sort of thing without reservation. I'm always up for an e-jihad on the family forum.

Seriously, pcad needs to ask himself why pcad feels the pressing need to have a circle jerk with other fly ti owners.

I'm always up for a good circle jerk. That's why I fit in so well on BF. Now stop, you're scaring away all the other Fly Ti owners.

What happened, did the circle of mirrors fall over?
