    13" 29er question - Fantom 29Pro SL 2x10

    Looking to get this for my wife (5'0") small. The 13" should provide enough clearance. She's been on a 15.5" Trek 29er and liked 29ers. Anyone have experience with Moto 13" 29er? I'm curious about their handling and toe overlap and any other observations you might have. Really any feedback from the smaller size ranges would be great. Also a picture if you've got it. Thanks.

    I am in a similar situation, so your post got me curious, and not being familiar with that bicycle I searched for it on Google. Came up with this thread about a prior model year version that might be of interest to you. Follow the link.

    Thanks for the picture. Which model is that and how's she liking it? I assume there's a good amount of standover with that?

    13" 29er question - Fantom 29Pro SL 2x10

    Standover is fine. It the fantom trail 29. She's been happy with it. The front fork is ridiculously heavy though.

    We've taken it on bikepacking trips and several longer rides and she likes it. I'm putting my old fork on there for her which should lighten the front a lot. Only real complain is the stock wheelset.
