We have sold thousands of Motobecane Century series road bikes. The same frame and fork 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:


“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."

“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.

Built with Tour de France winning Shimano shifting technology. Shimano Dura Ace/FSA 30 speed Triple Carbon Fiber cranks - Factory Direct Promotional Sale

THESE ARE Available now - apologies in advance if we sell out

Why is this Price So Low?
1) Factory Direct Prices
First of all, is the largest internet authorized retailer of bicycles and buys in enormous quantities to sell direct to cyclists at considerable discounts - near to wholesale prices of comparable bikes sold in shops near you.

2) Limited Supply Special Sale
Motobecane is making a big push into carbon fiber and believes that riders should see the value and quality for themselves. Instead of spending mega-bucks on flashy ads, Motobecane is cutting the price on this small shipment of bikes. They are allowing us to offer these for only $1,799.

What is the Warranty? Is Bikesdirect an authorized Motobecane dealer?
Yes, is a fully authorized Motobecane USA dealer and an official national warranty claims/service center. You get the Full Lifetime Motobecane USA Warranty coverage for all new Motobecane USA bicycles purchased from us. Feel free to verify this by contacting (

List is $3495

The $1,799 price is below comparable dealer cost of most any other comparably equipped full carbon bicycles. (see comparison below)

Is This a Complete Bike?
YES - Just add a rider with helmet, shoes and clothing.
A 50cm bike is 18 lbs (nominal weight per mfg). Professionally equipped with 2012 FSA Carbon fiber cranks, Shimano Dura Ace 30 speed Derailleurs, Shifters AND Cane Creek Brakes. Ride in total control with a raceable Ritchey Pro Bar, Stem, FSA Carbon Seatpost, superlight/puncture resistant pro-level Kevlar tires and
Ritchey Wheelset Factory Upgrade to NEW 2012 Mavic Aksium wheelset as shown.

How Good is the Frame?
This is based on Motobecane's BEST Carbon Fiber frame. This 2.8 lb (mfg stated), Monocoque High Modulus Carbon Fiber Frame and Carbon Fiber fork is based on the Immortal carbon frame tested by professional magazine editors to rave reviews. To name just a few: Roadie International and Bicycling Magazine tested this frame for several MONTHS and all the editors raved about it!

What Does The Century Team ($1,799) Compare To:
The Specialized Roubaix Comp sells for $2200 in stores

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

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

4) + Century Team has Cane Creek SCR5 Polished aluminum Dual-Pull Brake Calipers
    (Specialized comes with lower level Shimano 105)

    (Specialized Roubaix Comp $2200 List price + Local Taxes)

6) Century Team has much higher pro level Dura Ace Shifters
    (Specialized Roubaix Comp has lower level Shimano 105)

Why buy a heavier Shimano 6600 Ultegra bike anywhere else with housebrand wheels for $2,000+ when you can have a FULL Carbon Bike / Dura Ace Shimano 30spd for less? (AND LIGHTER TOO!)

How much Assembly needs to be done?
We are selling these bikes Factory Direct in the Factory box so you get pay a price comparable to what dealers pay for similarly equipped bikes. These are factory boxed in "dealer-ready" condition and are approx 90% assembled. Most customers have told us they can complete the assembly and tuning in 25 minutes or so.
