Customer Reviews Of Bikesdirect
"I purchased a bike from approx. 12 months ago. I got a great deal & they shipped it to me for free. The bike I purchased was a special offer were they had limited quantities. I rode the bike for 8 months & then sold it for what I purchased for. My overall experience with them was positive & I recommend them to my friends all the time."

G. Z. "…Lots of people pay a lot of money for the same thing as you can buy on (Bikesdirect).com and folks like me that get a sweet bike for a good price annoy them somehow….I'm a poor college kid, and I got a fine machine for a fair price…"

Edmund T. "...received the bike only 3 days after ordering it by UPS. I have been riding bikes since 1965, and I can say without question, that this particular model, the Motobecane Sturgis Bullet titanium Fat Bike, is one of the highest quality bikes I have ever seen and ridden..... and that would be compared to other bikes at ANY price…the quality of this titanium bike would rival bikes costing 2 to 3 times as much. Also..... the Bikes Direct customer service was fantastic, both before, and after the purchase. I can recommend this company without hesitation to anyone looking to save alot of money on a high quality bike, such as the one I purchased."
