    It's available for preorder at BD. They changed to an FSA crank though.

    It is hard to say before invoicing with currency moving daily
    but it looks like $2099 for the XO Fly Ti Team - with either 3x10 or 2x10

    I will be interested to see which sells better
    30-speed or 20-speed

    I can't wait to see this. Holding off any possible upgrade/bike purchase until then.

    Hey Mike. Any pricing set on the 26" AL Fly Team in 2 x 10 for 2011 yet? How much more than 2010? Any frame color changes? This will be my 3rd bike from your Jacksonville store. Thanks.

    So you're offering options now, eh? As in separate drop down boxes? Is there some place I can see specs on this and other Motobecane bikes soon to come? Since this comes in 2x10, can I assume that this is equipped with the brand spanking new SRAM stuff seen at interbike, the new line up that was supposed to be released this summer?

    Well i got rained out last night with a giant thunder storm and hail. Tonight is the madien voyage, ran by my LBS and we weighed the bike. I ordered a small which fits like a medium in standover and reach. (frame has two bottle cage mounts as well) The grand total on the bike without pedals was 21.74lbs, with my shimano xt's and a cage it weighed in a 22.86lbs. 350g for the pedal and 43g for the cage.

    Well so far about 35miles logged on the bike in the last two days. So far so good! The bike climbs like a monster, tracks very well in the single track and is very predictable. I have been riding and racing for about 15yrs and came from a Al Fisher Paragon with Crossmax wheel running 1x9. I am working on remembering that I have 2 chainrings up front but honestly with SRAMS larger cassette and the 39/27 I dont find myself in the 27 at all. There are plenty of gear choices in the cassette to grind up most climbs using the 39. Kudos to SRAM as well on the adjustability of the XX brakes, fork lockout and trigger shifters. The shifter body can be rotated a good bit to better suit hand position and with the single clamp design the bars are free of clutter!

    My only wish on the bike is that the wheels were tubeless ready. I will convert these in a day or so but wish i didnt have to use the ghetto method. I am not sold on the narrow very flat Ritchey handlebar. I prefer more sweep and will swap the bar shortly. But these are all personal preferences so take it for what its worth.

    Overall the bike recieved plenty of and . Several guys I ride with sport Ti bikes from Spot, Moots, and Dean. So far they all agree its a steal and say they'd consider one were they in the market.

    Enjoy the pics, should anyone want any close ups of any areas let me know.

    greetings....

    just a few questions for you. how tall are you and what is your barefoot inseam and shoe size? do you get much toe buzz from your shoe hitting the front tire? also curious as to the down tube/fork knob clearance. if turned to extreme right or left, do the adjustment knobs on the top of the fork contact the down tube of the bike? finally, how much space between the chainstays and seatstays?

    thanks
