    Bikes Direct Motobecane

    I was ready to pull the trigger on the Fantom 29 Pro and its sold out in my size. Then I tried other bikes and they all seem to be sold out. Are they getting ready to stock new models? Wish I could contact someone and ask them. Is there a contact?

    Two new models for 2011

    Check out the elite… similar to the pro.

    How does the shock on the Pro compare to the shock on the Elite?

    Motobecane has been selling 30 speeds for a bit time now on their high end bikes…so far no complaints. As for the fork it’s more or less a new fork from Sram my best guess it’s a step-down from the Fantom Pro’s 318 and a step-up from a dart 3.

    Still, if the size you need is not in stock and you want to save $100 more the Elite is a good option.

    Good Luck!

    As far as size going in the Moto 29ers I am 6'1" with a 34" inseam. I think a 19" frame would do me right. Would you agree?

    I bought a 17" 29er 3 weeks ago and my inseam is 31", I am 5"10", fits perfect. 19" would seem perfect for you.

    Does anybody have a weight on the 29Elite? That's a lot of bike for the money.

    I ordered the 29er elite 17" and the shipping weight is 30lbs so it's going to be less than that. I get it on wednesday and I'll post actual weight then.
