Major Upgrades for 2011 for the same price as 2009

After 10 years as a leader in light weight cross country bikes; the 2011 Motobecane Flys have been upgraded with a major frame design improvement:

1) Advanced frame strengthing for use beyond XC style riding
Hydroformed gussets, forged dropouts, specifically engineered tubing

2) Dropping 90 grams of paint via new Ball Burnished, Hand-Polished Aluminum finish

Motobecane USA has made their 2011 Flys the lightest sub $4000 mountain bikes available and some of the most durable aluminum super-lights. In addition, the costly procedure of aluminum polishing creates a super durable surface and a striking appearance.

No corners are cut, the 2011 FLY Team NOW with Avid Elixir Hydraulic disc brakes- specified with top-of-the-line race quality Shimano, Avid, Ritchey and Vuelta XRP components. The 2011 FLY series improves upon the superlight/strong frame as the FLY Team that was named XC Race Bike of the Year*!

At less than 20.1 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. These have always sold out very quickly and this batch will too!
