    Enjoying the $hit Out of My Fantom 29

    Welp, I guess I have had it a month now, and am enjoying the hell out of it, crap fork and all.

    I have been hitting the local trails 3-4 times a week, getting my fitness and heat-resistance up.

    I haven't tried too many technical things, so the fork isn't bothering me yet. Content just trying to get my speed up and get used to hauling a$$ (or trying to) on twisty trails with tree gates.

    Also, I have the OCD habit of continuing to shop for something after I have made the purchase. I pretty strongly feel that BD "gave" a heckuva deal on this bike. I have yet to see anything pop up used that's as good that isn't the price of a new fork away, whether it's fork is any better or not. Same is true of retail bikes on sale.

    I am content with the purchase.

    Thanks! I was thinking of X4, but my size is out of stock.

    Just got the X4 for my wife and a pro sl for me. The X4 shock is pretty lame but the rest of the bike is great. I think with a better shock like the Epicon (good price to performance ratio) it would be great for the money. The pro sl is pretty darn good out of the box. My only upgrade might be a saddle and grips. Rode a Fisher Pargon before the sl and so far I don't miss it at all.
