    nice,

    I've got a fly pro myself, it has the kenesis frame, it it pretty light ( they say 2.9 lbs) but I think it actually is 3.8 or so according to other sources.

    Still a nice/strong frame

    yup 7005 series made by either Sunrise or Kenisis I may be wrong. I did a little research into frame manufacturers, seems like Motobecane gets their frames from the same source as the big guys such as Trek, Specialized, Giant, Titus, etc.
