We have sold thousands of Motobecane FLY hardtail mountain bikes. The same frame tubing is used on all FLY hardtails. The higher level FLY Team Titanium, Titanium 29er and Fantom PRO Titanium models have the advanced geometrically enhanced 3/2.5 Titanium butted frames. Customers who own FLY bikes send friends and family to buy these incredibly capable mountain bikes all the time.

Here is what just a few magazines say:

MOUNTAIN BIKE ACTION
FLY Team 29 Ti XX Edition..."a sight to behold...Motobecane delivers a race-readybike with the Fly Team 29 Ti XX. ...offers more comfort than almost all aluminum hardtail race bikes and many carbon fiber race bikes. The SRAM XX drivetrain is inspiring. And Motobecane put the package together for a great price."

DECLINE MAGAZINE
“The FLY Team(29) swoops around big sweeping, high speed turns like a train on rails and motors across minute trail debris with the same powerful locomotion...The FLY Team(29) seems to go faster and faster...a deal that is hard to pass up, offering a high qualty frame with a rad parts spec.”

MOUNTAIN BIKING MAGAZINE
“The FLY 9357 from Motobecane USA is the lightest production hardtail available for under three thousand bucks. The 2.7 pound frame is precision welded from high strength Kinesium aluminum that is 40% stronger than 6061 or 7005 series aluminum.”

BIKE MAGAZINE
“This bike is an absolute feather. You can have the lightest bike on the block for about the same price as most people pay for their wheels. The lightweight flyer screams up hills with no hint of bottom bracket flex. How does Motobecane do it?”

MOUNTAIN BIKE ACTION
“IS 19.9 POUNDS TOO LIGHT? How is it possible for Motobecane to sell an under-20-pound (mountain) bike for such an incredible price? One thing is certain; you'll always win in the price department with this incredible deal. The FLY Team makes you feel like a superstar from the git-go. The 19.9 pound FLY Team simply motors.”

MOUNTAIN BIKING MAGAZINE
“FLY TEAM - XC RACE BIKE OF THE YEAR! The more we do the math, the harder it was to believe the price at which the Motobecane package leaves the shop. Performance of the frame and parts spec is on the highest level.”

MOUNTAIN BIKE ACTION
“The tight controls and frame angles are so lively it's easy for the rider to find his zone. The FLY rider will have an overwhelming desire to sprint past the front row and take the lead. In or out of the saddle, the 20 pounder retains complete steering precision on ultra steep grades without a hint of bar wagging or oversteering”

MOUNTAIN BIKING MAGAZINE
“The lightest bike that we've tested in the last 2 or 3 years. The FLY 9357 takes you higher, farther and faster than your lactate threshold ever imagined - at a price that isn't too outrageous.”

MOUNTAIN BIKING MAGAZINE
“Motobecane has been producing top-notch bikes specific to your needs for decades, and they continue to produce all levels of bikes while remaining focused on the customer. This bike is so light and rigid it seems to pedal itself
.”

MOUNTAIN BIKE ACTION
“Motobecane's FLY Team Titanium is made from double-butted, multi-shaped 3/2.5 titanium. The finished product is stunning. The frame does a nice job of absorbing the trail chatter, so the rider is not physically punished for the bike's performance.”

MOUNTAIN BIKING MAGAZINE
“FAST! That's what all our test riders had to say. This bike climbed like a jet airplane. The FLY is the ideal choice if you're looking an ultra-lightweight hardtail that doubles as a competitive cross country racing machine.”

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

The FLY Team was voted Best XC Race Bike of the Year -
Mountain Biking Magazine selected the Motobecane FLY Team over Trek, Specialized and many other brands as the best XC Race Bike of the Year in 2003.

Now for 2011, Motobecane USA has introduced the Ultimate hardtail race bike made of the Ultimate material - Titanium in what many consider to be the ultimate wheel size - 29er. Compared to Carbon Fiber, Titanium has far superior abrasion and cracking resistance. All riders we asked agreed that the best material for a "real trail" mountain bike has got to be Titanium.

No corners are cut, the 2011 FLY Team 29er Ti NOW with SRAM XX shifters/derailleurs, 100mm Rockshox Reba XX fork +Avid XX Disc Brakes -
specified with top-of-the-line race quality Shimano, Avid, Ritchey and Vuelta XRP components and the same great handling as the FLY Team XC Race Bike of the Year!

This Titanium 29er is equipped with the top-of-the-line, ten-speed, FSA 386 K-Force Lite, hollow carbon crank. Includes a super fast rolling, Ceramic External BB System. This FSA crank and BB is almost 2 ounces lighter than the SRAM XX crankset system. The K-Force crank alone retails for approx $750 vs the SRAM XX crank which retails for $450. Check out the FSA cartridge headset, sweet shifting 2011 SRAM XX 2 x 10 speed drivetrain with even lighter, precision bearing Vuelta XRP Team 29er edition SL Disc hubs and the hot new Avid XX Hydraulic Disc braking system. This bike has world dominating parts, without any doubt.

At less than 22.5 pounds*, this bike will be nothing but a blur as you smoke your competitors. Motobecane USA has dialed in a race-proven geometry into this phenomenal ride. The handling is very responsive and yet stable. Singletrack and switchbacks are all handled with ease. Slow speed and high speed, technical and flat-out hammering, you will go faster because this bike is so darn light.

This bike is truly versatile. Put slicks on this baby and give those roadies a good scare as this is as light as many road bikes out there. Or some meatier tires on it and you have got a superlight trail bike that can handle just about anything and anywhere. These special deals always sold out very quickly and this next batch will too.
