My 2015 Motobecane Super Strada Review

My New Motobecane Super Strada Review

I recently purchased another awesome bike from Bikes Direct. Let me tell you, this website can do no wrong. Everything that I have purchased from them has been of excellent quality. I'm not getting paid to review their products, I just think that they deserve credit for being one of the few reputable online bike distributors that give the consumer what they want at a reasonable price. 

The Motobecane Super Strada is an awesome bike that cuts no corners in terms of quality. While it did come with a compact frame design which made me feel a bit cramped in the cockpit area, I was able to remedy this with a few adjustments such as swapping out the stem. The biggest selling point of this bicycle is the compact gearing and Mavic Aksium wheelset that it comes with. The Shimano Ultegra 6800 shifters and derailleurs are top of the line and provide flawless shifting even while going up climbs. With the 11-32 rear cassette and the 50/34 crankset chainrings, one never runs out of gears to spin on while going uphill and most mild gradients can be done on the 50 tooth chainring. The Mavic wheels are super low maintenance, as I have had to true them only once in the 300 miles that I have ridden on them. 

The following is a video review I made about this bike. It basically mentions everything I mentioned above. Check out the video and let me know your thoughts.

  2. How tall are you Johnny and what frame size have you picked? I'm thinking of getting super strada too and not too sure about the right frame size

  3. Omni Strada Expert is on my radar right now.
