We have sold thousands of Motobecane Century series road bikes. Now, Motobecane has made these in Titanium. This Century Titanium frame has some of the best quality and design in a titanium 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.

When you consider the discount BIKESDIRECT offers on these super quality road bikes now made in Titanium; nothing else comes even close!

BRAND NEW 2012 Motobecane Century PRO Titanium Road Bikes


PLUSH RIDING and SWEET HANDLING Titanium FRAMES! +
Built with Tour de France winning Shimano shifting technology. Shimano Ultegra, 30 Speed.

Choose the Century Titanium if you want a more relaxed and upright position
The Century Ti frames have a bit longer head tube so riders can have a more relaxed position on the bikes than the Le Champion Ti series. These frames and forks are specially designed to fit tires as wide as 40mm.

One of the highest level frames available - Double Butted 3/2.5 Titanium tubing. Geometry is specifically designed to deliver the most comfortable ride and riding positions. The front and rear tire clearance is so generous the Century Titanium comes with 700x32c tires. One can even use tires as wide as 40mm for an even more unbelievably comfortable and secure ride.
(40mm tires not included, see www.bikeisland.com to purchase wider tires)

Factory Direct Promotional Sale

Why is this Price So Low?
1) Factory Direct Prices
First of all, Bikesdirect.com 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 titanium 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 $2,099.

What is the Warranty? Is Bikesdirect an authorized Motobecane dealer?
Yes, Bikesdirect.com 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 www.motobecane.com (info@motobecane.com).


List is $3,499.

The $2,099 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 19.2 lbs (nominal weight per mfg)
. Professionally equipped with Full Shimano Ultegra, 30 Speed drivetrain. Ride in total control with a race-ready Ritchey PRO Bar, Stem, FSA Carbon Seatpost, superlight/puncture resistant pro-level Continental tires and now upgraded with Mavic Aksium precision bearing Wheelset too!

How Good is the Frame?
This is based on Motobecane's BEST Butted Titanium frame. The wheel base lengthened and the angles slackened just enough to provide one of the most comfortable rides you will ever experience. Incredibly comfortable, lightweight and strong.

This 3.3 lb (mfg stated), Butted, 3/2.5 Titanium Frame and Carbon Fiber fork is based on the Le Champion Titanium frame tested by professional magazine editors to rave reviews. To name just a few: Roadie International and Road Magazine tested Titanium framed Le Champions for several MONTHS and all the editors raved about it! FULL MOTOBECANE USA WARRANTY

What Does The Century PRO Titanium Compare To:


Why buy an 18-19 lbs Ultegra Aluminum bike anywhere else with housebrand wheels for $3,000+ when you can have a FULL Titanium Bike / Ultegra 30spd for almost $1,000 less?

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.
