    Motobecane 29er Ti Tube Shape
    Hello,

    I had ordered the Motobecane Ti Le Champion road bike and I was surprised at the tube shapes on the frame.

    I'm really interested in the Ti 29er from BD, but don't want any surprises this time.

    So for the owners, what shape does your frame tubing have?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have both bikes you mention. My 29er has regular round tubes, while my Ti moto has the cool non-round tubing.

    You mind posting a picture?

    Is oval or what kind of shape is it?

    What is wrong with tube shapes?

    I have 26 Fly titanium and the tubeset is heavily shaped. Bike rides awesome - better then some boutique frames - with simple round tubing - that I have tried before.

    Excellent tubeset and very good welds.

    Nothing is wrong with them. I just prefer the aesthetics of round tubes.

    I find it hard to tell the difference visually. But it rides very well - stiffer and lighter then some simple round tubing some frames use.
