So I bought a 2009 Motobecane Jury on eBay. Sadly, I did so before I discovered bikeforums.net (a few months ago). I've since read some less than stellar reviews of this frame in the forums.
Mainly, concerns stemmed from the long-reach brakes I'll need ... if I even bother with brakes. Probably just a front brake.
OK, so other than that, have I totally wasted $225? I'm a student, so I have to slowly save up to buy each piece. I like the look of the frame and the fact that I could fit wider tires on this frame (I run 28s on my Schwinn Sprint conversion and would like bigger ones on my next project).
Thanks for criticisms, uplifting comments and jokes alike.
