2020 Motobecane Mulekick 853 steel gravel bike

Motobecane is known for crazy low prices on some impressive bike builds, and their latest bikes follow suit. The new Mulekick 853 gravel bike is offered through BikesDirect.com, and has a spec sheet that compares to many bikes costing several times its asking price.

Highlights for the build include a Shimano GRX 2×11 drivetrain, hydraulic disc brakes, DT Swiss Spline tubeless-ready wheels, and Ritchey cockpit. Tire clearance is reported at 700x40mm, with no mention made of 650b compatibility.

The provided geometry chart has six sizes, while their online sizing guide (based on rider height) omits the 47cm size.

Motobecane is also offering a cyclocross-focused version called the Whipshot. The frame material and geometry appear to be identical to the Mulekick, but the build kit opts for a SRAM Force 1x drivetrain.

Both the Mulekick and Whipshot are available for pre-order now for $1,799.
