    Motobecane Fantom 29er NX 1x11

    Anybody have any experience with this Bike? Weight, ride etc?? I'm looking for a new 29er hardtail. I race local cross country races. I'm in the $1,500 market so if anybody has suggestions or is familiar with the above bike, I'm all ears.

    We just ordered my 15 year old son the grey 17.5 inch one. He is new to xc riding and it looked like a good setup for a cross country and ride to school and back rig. I was considering the $399 529HT one but figured if he gets serious at all about riding the NX 1x11 will be a much better choice I think. And I love the 1x11 xx1 I have on my Specialized Epic comp. Ditching that left shifter was wonderful. But when it arrives and we get it built up I will let you know what I think.

    I bought one about a month ago. It went together well. I'm a big guy and it handles well and very durable on the trails. I really like the single chain ring. It makes for a more simplistic setup. Disc brakes work great also.
