    Where does a new Motobecane come from?

    Where is the factory or warehouse?

    Mine came from the Dallas area. I can't remember which suburb.

    Edit: I assumed you meant where does BD ship from.

    The bikes are made in Taiwan by Kinesis. They must then ship them to bikesdirect which I think is in Texas.

    It doesn't seem too exciting to me. Its probably just a warehouse with a bunch of boxed up bikes. They never even open the boxes when they get them, they just ship them out. So I don't think there would be much to see.

    They are quality checked in Asia and then boxed and shipped to a warehouse. When you buy one, the box is then shipped to you.

    BTW-when you LBS orders bikes from Trek (except top end carbon), Specialized, Giant, etc...those bikes travel the same path except the dealer is the purchaser.

    Thanks, all I was just wanting to know how long it would take for shipping before I got the tracking number. So the State was enough info.
