    Keep in mind that the Fantom 29 frames were designed for a 100mm travel fork; a rigid fork might not have the same axle-to-crown length and you could end up with a very steep head tube angle and a very twitchy bike.

    As AZ.MTNS linked, bikeisland.com sells many Motobecane frames very inexpensively and with free shipping.
    Go on ahead, I'm gonna take a breather.
