    Cool Motobecane Turino Review Bike Packing Setup

    I recently took a gamble on the Motobecane Turino from Bikesdirect.com. Ive always been curious about these bikes at such a low price point and was willing to put down the $1000 to find out.

    Out the box the bike weighs about 10kgs which isn't too bad.

    Shimano 5800/105 2x11 Spd STI Drivetrain

    TOP TRP Hy-Rd Hydraulic DISC BRAKE CALIPERS
    SHIMANO 5800/105 DERAILLEURS
    FSA ALUMINUM COMPACT CRANKSET is great for flattening hills

    I swapped the cheap wheelset with a spare set of Mavic CrossOne. Also Cheap but fit the 35c tyres I'm running quite well.

    All works well. Taking this bike into Lesotho for a bit of mountain bikepacking so itll get a good test in the next few weeks.

    More info to follow but for now I think that if you're in the market for a $1000 bike this one is the one for you.

    Just need to trim that damn steerer.

    Any feedback of the bike quality? I'm in the market for a gravel bike and considering purchasing from bikes direct. Just having cold feet, not sure what to expect.
