I've been riding a Fantom Team DS since 2008 and have ridden many enjoyable miles on it. Lately I've been thinking that it's time to ride something new and with 29" wheels. I'd like opinions from Fantom 29 riders, especially anyone that may have started on the 26" version like me.
I went to Dirt Fest here in Pennsylvania a few weeks ago and got to ride several new, top of the line 29" bikes. Scott Scale, Specialized Epic World Cup, Ibis Ripley (loved it!), Cannondale Scalpel. I immediately noticed the improvement in rear suspension technology and the solid pedaling platform that all provided even without locking out the shock. I want one! But I would like to again get the great value that I got back in '08 when I bought my Fantom.
So my question for current Fantom riders - the suspension design of the Fantom 29 appears similar to the 26" bike, but does it perform better? Good solid pedaling platform? My 26" always has had quite a bit of squish in the rear that I didn't care for but just dealt with it, and I'm hoping to hear that the 29" provides significant improvement.
