    Bonking ... not feelin' well Motobecane not at Interbike?

    I could have sworn I saw these guys listed on MTBR Interbike yesterday as a booth. Was just waiting for the pics and info to come online... Nothing! Checked the site again tonight and the company was gone, nadda, nothing. I was looking forward to checking out the 2011 lineup and maybe a peek at their new full suspension 29er they've been developing. Oh well, I'll have to wait for now.

    I hate to say it, but what would they show? 3 like colored Ti bikes with different drive trains?

    Would still buy from them in a heart beat however.

    I think they did 'virtual' interbike last year, but I doubt they've ever had a booth at the real show.


    Trade shows are outrageously expensive. By selling customer direct, moto bypasses the dealers that are the focus of the show. Wasting that kind of money just doesn't fit with their business model.

    The deals on their bikes are different because they do things differently. The big names would love it if Mike followed their high overhead example. I'm glad he doesn't.

    I wouldn't call it wasting your money…but it doesn’t fit their business model. So it wouldn’t benefit them as much as others.

    The best thing they can do is what they have been doing. That is...due to having such low overhead, keep passing the savings directly to the consumer and help out independent local racers. That will do more for them then any trade show would.

    Keeping low keyed and grass rooted.

    P.S. I’m not at interbike so I’m not missing much.

    Yeah, I guess it would take from the bottom line to purchase a booth at the show. They already do a great job keeping the BD website current with good close up pics. I do think it's more beneficial to be at Interbike in person rather than seeing it online.

    Curious to see what develops down the road for MB as they're able to invest more in quality bikes the longer they stay in business and keep their riders happy!

    Interbike is an industry show, attended mostly by guys from bike shops - who don't sell Motobecanes, I don't think there's much incentive for them to show at Interbike.
