    Fantom 29er Ti vs Fly 29er Ti

    I sent an email to BD then remembered this forum and thought some of you might have an answer.

    I am 6'05" and wanting to know which frame would fit me better. They both seem like they would work but notice the Fantom has a bit longer TT as well as a longer wheelbase.

    Also, the Fantom comes with larger rotors and a thru axle on the fork which makes me think this bike might be intended for more aggressive trail riding?

    The Fantom is $400 less but I would spend the extra if the Fly was better in some way that I am not't aware of.

    Thanks

    Find a bike you like as far as fit, get the specs, and see which Moto has the closest specs on the frame dims, particularly the top tube length.
    I got the Fantom Ti because it more closely matched a bike that fit me great (Scott Scale Elite 29er).
    I had a Fly frame on my previous bike and it felt a little cramped.
