Is this bike a deal or is the frame super-crap? This has got to be the cheapest bike going with Ultegra....anybody own one?

There have been a few discussions here about this bike, Motebecane, and bikesdirect in general... here are a couple:

I thought that was the Aloha. If so, it's a good deal.

Someone will confirm this here in a few minutes.

I bought the Motobecane Century Team from them.

My thinking was simple. The price roughtly equaled the price of a Dura Ace groupo. So if worse comes to worse I get free wheels, fame, stem and bars. But I ended up liking the bike.

But

1. You'll need to get the fit right
2. You'll need to get the bike built up

I have bought two bikes from Bikesdirect. Frames are actually not bad at all. Bike comes almost fully assembled and building the bike up takes less than an hour. Can't beat their deals.

That bike is the exact same bike as the fuji, with a different paint job and sticker.

I bought 3 sets of those wheels for training. One for me, one for the wife, and one for my dad. At $100 including tires and a nice set of Alex rims that are pretty bomb proof that is hard to beat.
