    I'd get the Motobecane. It's your best choice.

    motobacane or the iron horse, they both seem to have comperable components at a glance, better than the diamond back, one question is can you assemble a packed bike, next question is can you assemble it well, i've never ordered from bikesdirect, but generally when a good shop gets a new bike its takes 1-2hrs to get it from the box to the floor, you need to torque things to spec, detention and true the wheels adjust breaks/deraileur and all the bearings (hubs/headset) If you cant do that then get the iron horse cause you can get it in a bikeshop

    also CAPS LOCK IS CRUISE CONTROL TO COOL

    Checker's fries are supposedly made with tallow - they are sooo very good.
    Falling is learning...[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]...learn to not fall in a box.
    Any good American will watch THIS -and- WHERE WAS MY BIKE MADE?
