I'm looking at two of the BikesDirect steel bikes. (Not opening a can of worms, I know what I'm getting into). I'm just looking for guidance on which geometry is going to be more relaxed. I have a...
Lowest price I've seen on these. Sturdy as hell: http://www.nashbar.com/bikes/Product_10053_10052_552309_-1___
Yeah, the fork is a little weird, but that's BD for you. Still a decent price to me. Everything is more expensive these days.
Thanks all for the replies. Sounds like the guy above just went with his regular size and it worked out. My regular size is a 56, I'm probably over thinking this.
Cool, thanks, I've actually been curious about the Mirage as well.
Thanks, yes, I've been comparing measurements with bikes that I know fit me. The trouble, I think, is trying to factor in head tube length/angle, BB drop, crank length etc.. I guess at the end of the...
Another shot in the dark and shameless bump: If you ride one of these, how do you find the sizing to be? I'm between the 54 and 56. I've got long legs for my height and am trying to figure which...
I'm gonna revive this Zombie bike thread. Are either of you two still riding your Mirage? I'm thinking about getting one for recreational/social riding, as I miss the feel of steel on longer rides....

At the risk of starting a BikesDirect discussion thread, I'm looking for opinions from owners/riders of the Motobecane Gran Premio Comp seen...

TT's are back in stock.
Driveway Series-Austin, Speed Loop. Cat. 4/5
My best race of the season. Follow some attacks/chases, got a solid pack finish which was my aim. I've been out a few times this year and couldn't...
Hope you guys feel better soon. What race was it?
Lord, I would ride the tits off if that.
I got that a while back. Decent frame, a little heavy, but good and stiff.
Before I saw the brake, I thought it was pretty cool. I will never understand the fear of brakes/cables.
Keeps it more clean and better looking on instagram.
What's weird is that I had only heard that g-word for the first time yesterday, now I see the thread. Weird.
