    Motobecane 27.5 fs pro bike

    I'm looking at buying this bike down the line, it looks like the best value out there are as far as bikes in this category i've seen so far. Only criticism I have is that it is only available in the shimano drive-train. I have experience with both trigger-shifters, and plain prefer the sram shifters.

    That would be pretty awesome if they could also spec a SRAM drive-train kit, particularly the new 1x11 X01 or XX drive train. I definitely would pony up more $$ for that, but a regular 2x10 sram x9,x0 drive-train would be great as well.

    hoping someone from motobecane sees this.

    looks quite good, I know the component spec is very high but i'm wondering how much the entire bike weighs?
