Does anyone know anything about this frame? Like where to get one and if the company makes any other frames. I can't find any information on it anywhere, except that it is columbus airplane main triangle and time carbon rearstays.
re-branded Cyfac or Time? Just a guess...nmSpunout

i dont know where to get them but I know that they used to make the motobecane brand bike. maybe do a websearch for the cofidis site and they willl probably have a link to MBK or do a search for MBK maybe that will turn something up.
hope this helps

MBK is a generalist bicycle manufacturer here in France -- they are known for good, but not great, bikes -- they are like Peugeot and Gitane in that respect. Their bikes are cheap but get the work done -- for the most part. Cofidis, however, doesn't ride MBK bikes as such. They ride Cyfac-manufactured frames that are re-badged as MBK. Some of these "replica" frames are available -- and are quite good quality given Cyfac's excellent reputation and skill.

A+
