    No good Check your Fantom for cracks, mine broke in half.

    I was riding my Fantom 29er Saturday and my frame broke in half. I weigh 185. Just a reminder to check your frame for cracks every once in awhile. It looks like this one was cracked before I started my ride. Since I bought the frame used, it's not covered under warranty.

    Nope. Had just gone around a switchback and had very little speed. If it had happened 5 seconds earlier and it might have been brutal.
