We have sold thousands of Motobecane Century series road bikes. The same frame is used on all. This Century Carbon Fiber frame has some of the best quality and design in a carbon fiber frame we have seen. Customers who own Century road bikes send friends and family to buy these excellent road bikes all the time.

Here is what just a few magazines say:

CENTURY PRO – ROAD

“Motobecane bikes can always be counted on for coming in at a price that is downright reasonable. A solid, no-nonsense frame and fork combination with a worry-free, stellar specification at a price that will make you rub your eyes.”


CENTURY PRO – Bicycling Magazine
compares a Motobecane Century Pro to a $10,000 Merlin in a full test ride article!
"The gap between cost and performance simply isn't big enough to justify all the extra cash. The Motobecane delivers the goods with enough money left for a trip for two to the Giro d'Italia. The Motobecane is a shining example of solid design with good spec and a fine ride at a great price."

CENTURY TEAM – ROAD
“As with all Motobecane bikes, the specification is always carefully chosen. The Century Team is an all-purpose bike that can suit any type of rider.  The ResponseShape downtube and QuadSection chain stays are for optimum power transfer, while the OrganicForm seat stays are designed for comfort and compliance. Motobecane’s have great value: Century Team only $3495 with Dura Ace.”

Even when reviewed at list price, magazines feel the Motobecane Century road bikes are incredible values.

What Does The Century Pro Compare To:
The Specialized Roubaix Comp sells for $2200 in stores - virtually Identically Equipped with the following main DIFFERENCES:

1) + Century Pro has HIGH MODULUS CARBON Fiber MONOCOQUE FRAME made in Taiwan
     (
Taiwan is regarded as the BEST for carbon bicycle technology. The Specialized frame is made in China.)

2) + Century Pro has FREE super-light Clipless Pedals! (List $80)
     (The Specialized bike comes with low dollar plastic pedals) (List $10)

3) + Century Pro has Ritchey Bar / Stem / FSA Carbon Seatpost, Professional level Kevlar bead road racing tires
     (Specialized comes with lower level housebrand items)

4) + Century Pro has Cane Creek Polished aluminum Dual-Pull Brake Calipers
    (Specialized comes with lower level Shimano 105)

5) Century Pro $1495 - PRICE INCLUDES UPS GROUND TO 48 STATES
    (Specialized Roubaix Comp $2200 List price + Local Taxes)

6) Century Pro has higher level Ultegra Shifters
    (Specialized Roubaix Comp has lower level Shimano 105)


Also - Century Pro has a 30 speed Triple just like the one found on the Roubaix Comp Triple.


Why buy an 18-19 lbs Aluminum Shimano 6600 Ultegra bike anywhere else with housebrand wheels for $2,000+ when you can have a FULL Carbon Bike / Full 6600 Ultegra/105 Shimano 30spd? (AND LIGHTER TOO!)
