We don’t know how Bikes Direct does it, but they’re continually able to sell bikes that cost less than the sum of all components. We checked out their Motobecane Ti mountain bike and their road bikes recently and they fared well.
What we really liked was their titanium frame cause it looked great and rode even better. It really was not easy to detect the cosmetic or the ride difference between this Ti frame and boutique brands.
That’s why this Ti fat bike introduction is quite interesting. They will bring to market bikes with well built Ti frames and good component specs. Titanium seems to be a great match for fat bikes since it does not corrode. Often used in snow, sand or salty areas, frame corrosion is a key enemy of fat bikes.
The NightTrain Ti Bullet is different from the Sturgis as it upgrades to RaceFace Turbine cranks, Guide RS Brakes, SRAM X9, and 120 TPI tires.
