    My Ti Fantom Pro in the Chequamegon 40 Race tomorrow...

    I'll let you all know how my Ti Fantom does in the Cheq 40 this weekend. Curious to see how many other Moto's will be among the 2500 racers. Pics to come after the weekend.

    Just received my Sram X.0 rear derailleur and X.0 grip shifts that I'll install after the race. Still looking for a lightweight front derailleur though.

    My buddy will be riding his Moto Ti 29er tomorrow at the fat tire festival - he's hoping to place in the top 100! He took his stickers off, though, so it's harder to spot.

    Wow. You decked that thing out. I see a lot of carbon and high priced parts.

    Good luck in the race.


    Hate to bring it up, but that's first time I saw anyone with wheel QR levers on the right side. Also, what size is that? Must be big to have the head tube that long. Also, is that the Made in Taiwan sticker under the head badge? LOL... pulling your leg... could be that I'm jealous.

    Wrong side for levers.
    How do you not fall off bike with the seat tilted like that?
    A lighter FD????
    Ride much or just post positive reviews about Motobecane on the internet?

    I keep my front QR lever on the right side... Lets me crank down on it without worrying about the sharp edges on my rotor. There's really no "wrong" side, it's just a matter of convenience.

    Just get a bolt-on skewer, that will be stiffer, more reliable, and lighter.
