There are only a few good choices when buying a high grade Steel bike:
Soma Stanyan, De Rosa, Motobecane Gran Premio PRO Reynolds 853 Road Bikes, Colnago Master and so on. These bikes are all high grade Steel road bikes that have many features in common - including price tags well over $4499. In some cases, just for the frame alone...
You can do whatever you want with a Motobecane Gran Premio, but if you're anything like the guys at Motobecane, you're gonna want to cruise a century ride in style and comfort or travel unfamiliar blue-line highways on this bicycle. Maybe ride it to your reunion. Maybe all on the same day? The Gran Premio is supremely comfortable and offers incredible performance and strength.
Motobecane's product engineers designed this bike for comfortable performance. The angles of the butted, Reynolds Chromoly frame are relaxed for stability, the wheelbase is just right, the clearances around the wheels sufficient for most tires up to 700x25c. The Reynolds Butted frame is handcrafted and has a precision machined bottom bracket shell.
