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-ready bike with the Fly Team 29 Ti XX. ...offers more comfort than almost all aluminum hardtail race bikes and many carbon fiber race bikes. The (10speed) drivetrain is inspiring. And Motobecane put the package together for a great price."
See full review Click HERE

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.

At less than 23.5 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.

Here is a great video taken by one of our customers who rode their Motobecane FLY Team 29 Titanium mountain bike in the 2011 Leadville 100 MTB Trail race. It's the Powerline descent.

The Leadville Powerline trail is much steeper than it looks...as steep as 27% and averages 7.3% in nearly 4 miles. In comparison, the steepest sections in the Tour de France are at most only 10%. The Leadville course starts out at 10,200ft. Higher than the highest mountain pass ever summited in any Tour de France. The Leadville 100 MTB course does not descend below 9,000 ft and climbs to over 12,000 ft!
