    Motobecane Le Champion Team Titanium arrived on Monday. With a small headlight, trip computer, rear light, small seat bag (with one tube and tire levers), and Shimano SPD Road Touring pedals, the bike shop scale read 17.90 pounds. It's a size 51 (seat tube) which has a 54cm top tube.

    98 miles on the bike in three days and I'm really liking it.

    58 Gran Premio Pro with Ultegra comes in stock at around 19-19.5 lbs. I read where a Gran Premio Inferno with SRAM Red weighed in at 18 lbs but he swapped out super light rims, a lighter saddle, changed the stem and handlebars and added egg beater pedals.
    My bike totals out at 22.5 lbs with touring pedals, Brooks B17 saddle, and lots of junk in my seat bag but my scales weigh heavy so it might be a little lighter.

    You know if it does void the warranty for some stupid reason so be it. Looking at it logically if my frame cracks I do not see how me taking off the decals could have had anything to do with it. If BD and Motobecane have integrity they would still warranty the frame I would hope. I am sure they could tell they made the frame. If anyone has any information on the reasoning on why removing the decals would void the warranty please do tell.

    I removed the decals with Acetone and a cloth. I wear protective gloves and take my time. It does not come off fast but it will come off.

    Le Champion Team Ti

    Swapped out the saddle with a Specialized Milano. Had to swap out the pedals because my right foot goes numb when riding on the ball of the foot. I need to ride on the arch of the foot. Used Avenir Ultralight pedals (260g). Added two bottle cages.

    The LBS that assembled the bike weighed it with these changes at 17 pounds 8 ounces. They were very impressed with the bike and so was I !!

    mine is a size 53. The Motobecane website says the weight of the Ti Champion Team is between 15.7 (48c) and 16.5 (59c) without pedals, so I don't see anything unusual.

    What type of bike do you have?

    My 54cm Team Track.
    As pictured
    with heavy pedals, a 16T freewheel & 16T cog and a gopro



    16.5 lbs.

    I could remove the camera, freewheel, and swap the pedals to some speedplays to drop 1.5lbs.

    I could also swap the bars, stem, and seatpost for carbon.

    adstein, I am considering buying a Century Ti. How do you like the bike? Does it really put you in a more upright riding position and is it comfortable? Is the steering a little sluggish due to the long wheelbase and chainstays? I'm having a hard time deciding between this and the Le Champion Ti.

    Good long distance bike but not a racer

    The bike is very well built and a great long distance ride. It is really almost a touring setup; albeit a very light one You definitely have more of a relaxed upright position. However, you don't get the immediate acceleration you would expect on a racing bike. Sizing is a little odd as I am only 5' 8" and am on the 55cm bike. It is a little big but the 53 with the lower headset seemed like it would be to aggressive for me.

    Good luck.
