So I got the bike yesterday. Came home from work and it was just sitting there, in it's giant box like you've seen pictures of in this subforum. Opened it up and everything was packed like normal.
Easy assembly, I love new stuff! There was a scratch on the fork (near the inside) which I will show you. Frame had no scratches or dings. Everything else was in pristine condition. I am 6' and was worried about the 16" frame being too small, but after putting on the handlebar and front wheel, rode it around and it was perfect. Just the way the frame is I guess, makes it give you enough cockpit room and keeps a fairly decent wheelbase. I love the remote lockout on the fork! So easy to turn on/off. The Juicy Seven brakes are a dream...
I will take some pictures during my lunch break and post them up. Haven't seen too many Fantom Pro pics here. The white frame really stand out!!! I will also try and put up some measurements that are not found on the manufacturer's geometry page.
Pictures take with Nokia N82:
Next to my CTS.
I love the look of these controls!!!
Next to my old bike. My brothers cheap Mongoose is in the background.
Isn't XTR just sexy?
I forgot to take a picture of the damaged fork. Small scrape that will eventually blend in with others as time goes on. I will apply some black paint to fix it up.
Modifications: Swapped seats with my old bike for extra comfort, put on my old Wellgo pedals (I just love the wide pedals and can't bring myself to buy special shoes for clipless), and been thinking about swapping wheelsets. Not sure how these Gravity hubs will hold up.
