    Have a Fantom TI 29 - don't understand the desire to debadge. Don't really care if everybody else likes my bike, it is a damn good bike for a reasonable cost.
    Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

    I love my Motobecane FS Elite, even though I bought it used, it's still been a good ride, but I do want to get a longer crankset for it again, 170mm feels a bit short now lol .

    Me either....I cannot guaranty Zebra stripes and other gaudy colors wont show up on any bike I own...but the badges are there and they are too much work to remove...

    Moto pride!

    Bought my first Moto almost 6 months ago to the day...Don't think I'll ever buy another brand.

    Bought the Fly Team 29 Ti. It is sweet as candied cherries. For me I have found that most real MTBers like the fact that it is different. I adventure race so its a wacked crowd anyway and we all like weird stuff. That's why we adventure race.

    As far as the Moto-haters on here...I think they hate just because they relize how much money they wasted on the bike that they bought!

    Actually ordering the wife one in the next couple of months!

    - compared my 2012 Fly Ti 29er frame to a Moots Ti 26er, circa 1998, and they were built is incredibly similar fashion........I was really surprised, and so was the Moots owner.......

    I heard someone say, "If you want a heavy commuter that can take trails, get a fb roadie or a cyclocross". I've been seriously considering a cyclocross bike. The Fantom Cross CX looks mighty appealing. I want a bike that will grow with me.... right now I'm mostly interested in paved trails, but I would like to try out less groomed trails and light mountain biking with the same bike. Also, I like that that particular model is set up for front and rear racks and other accessories.

    I know nothing of specs and I'm assuming I should attempt a fit at a LBS. But just in case anyone has any advice regarding size, I am 5'8 with a 31 inch inseam.The only thing that really makes me nervous about buying that particular model is that it is more expensive than I had planned on (reviews i have read suggest I will wanna buy a new seat too)... and I have never had a drop down bar (my previous bikes have always been upright flat bar style). Any feedback would be appreciated!

    I ordered the 2014 550HT and still waiting for it to show up..I went to a trek and specialized dealer and looked around...In all honesty the motobecane from Bikesdirect has much better components or equal components and its was 200 to 250 dollars or more cheaper. You need to spend near $600 at a LBS to get what I got for $349 shipped...But anyway; I can work on my bike so I don't need the support the LBS offers to build it for me or want to pay retail for a bike so I went the internet sales route..i wanted more than I got so I went nuts with it..Can see my build in the motobecane thread...The parts im taking off the stock 550 will be used to upgrade another new build im doing as well..Building a new 2103 Mongoose Xr200 like the one MTBR did a review on..I wont be doing the build on this site though.

    I just ordered my moto Fantom TeamFS for $1600. I love it and it has all XTR, Carbon cranks and rides perfect. i would buy another one in heart beat. As far as what other people think.. I'm old enough to not care. Just ride.

    I can buy a big named brand but that is how you keep money in the bank... be smart.

    Like the OP 4 years ago, I still have my MB Grand Touring I bought when I was in College. Steel bike. Still rides great. Last year I got the 9'iron and that has been pretty darned indestructible, so now I've built out a Ti Fly. With a white fork and black Stan's Flows...it's beautiful. My 10th grader is now trying to destroy the 9 iron. Good luck with that.
