Faster than a Hybrid or Comfort bike, more comfy than a Road Bike!

What is it? It's a Cafe Bike!!
Cafe bikes are road bikes with flat bars and high-rise stems so you can ride with more comfort and control than a regular road bike and far greater speed than a hybrid or comfort bike.

The Motobecane Cafe Century comforts you
with the superior ride of a precision engineered High Modulus Carbon Fiber 12K frame and Pro Quality High Modulus Carbon Fiber Fork.
Approx. weight per mfg: 19.9 to 21.9 lbs without pedals/reflectors

The smooth ride and stable handling is perfect for those relaxing weekend tours of the countryside.

Optimized Carbon Ride Quailty
The carbon fiber frame incorporates some very carefully considered features. All frame tube profiles are specially shaped. The down tube has a custom lay-up of carbon fibers with a special square to oval taper. This is designed for your maximum comfort yet with an extremely efficient, responsive and confident ride quality.

Wide Tires Fit
The Cafe Century carbon fiber frame is one of the only carbon fiber frame and fork sets that can accept a tire up to 42mm wide*. This means one can outfit the Cafe Century with cyclocross size tires and tackle nearly any road condition with enhanced control and comfort.
