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, in 2009, the FLY Team is just as light and even better equipped. We Guarantee*, You won't find a lighter comparably equipped, XC offroad race machine at this price, new with full factory warranty. Or even at twice our Factory Direct sale price.
(*see satisfaction policy www.bikesdirect.com/money.htm)

No corners are cut, the 2009 FLY Team NOW with FULL SHIMANO XTR shifters/derailleurs, 80mm ROCKSHOX SID Race fork + Avid Juicy Carbon Disc Brakes -
specified with top-of-the-line race quality Shimano, Avid, Ritchey and Vuelta XRP components and the same superlight/strong frame as the FLY Team XC Race Bike of the Year! The 2009 FLY Team has the FSA Carbon crank and External BB System, FSA cartridge headset, sweet shifting 2009 Shimano XTR drivetrain with even lighter, precision bearing Vuelta XRP Team edition Disc hubs and amazing Avid Juicy Carbon Hydraulic Disc braking system.

At less than 20.5 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, longer travel fork and some meatier tires on it and you have got a superlight trail bike that can handle just about anything and anywhere. (No Hucking Please) These have always sold out very quickly and this next batch will too.
