    In this last shot you can see my chain drooping; the trails weren't quite ready for us in the beginning of the season (little did we know) and I actually tore my derailleur off.
    How did it get torn off?

    My 700HT comes in tomorrow! I will post pics up when I get it assembled. Not concerned with putting everything together. A little concerned on the tuning/adjusting of the derailleur. The youtube video from BD makes it seem pretty easy.

    Can't wait to get it and get on it! My old DB only will shift into 3 gears!

    Oh, and nice JK :wave:

    Clay like mud built up on the frame since there's not enough clearance going around the tires for it, and then it just piled up on the derailleur and tore the hanger, which is what it's supposed to happen anyways. The derailleur itself was fine, just had to clean it all up and get a new hanger. Tuning/adjusting the derailleur is dead easy, set the limit screws and then use the barrel adjuster on the shifters to get the correct cable tension. Enjoy your new bike!

    First real ride on my new Elite Sport. 12 miles with hills was a breeze. No shipping, assembly, or tuning issues.

    I took my time setting my bike up, learned more than I thought.
    The ridiculousness of cycling clothes increase exponentially in relation to the distance from your bicycle.

    DEmbry,

    I really like the new Moto frames. Orange looks nice. What's the weight of that bike?

    If anyone reads this and has a 2011 or 2012 Fantom Team XTR or X0 group 26er, can you post pictures of what brakes you have? Bikes states that they have Avid CRs but i saw one with newer ones.

    Thanks in advance

    Fantom team frame with mismatched components. $300 CL special for me to ride like its stolen. Also came with BB5s (brand new and everything i need) and a rockshox ario 2.2, which is sadly to big for the frame.

    Great photos! Getting me excited about my new bike.

    I just ordered a Fantom Pro DS frame off Pinkbike and hope to be getting it in soon! I've got a Trek 3700 which I'll be taking parts from. I know they are **** components, but lightening up the whole bike bit by bit is the fun part right? I'll post some pictures once it comes in and I get everything put together.

    Fun? That's arguable.

    Expensive. Yes. Unless you find cheap lightly used parts.

    I guess it depends on the person. I like working on bikes (good bikes, not **** walmart bikes), especially my own.

    That's what I intend to do, haha. Frame comes in tomorrow evening.

    How do you all like the Moto's and experience with BD (if that's where you got it?) I'm close to pulling the trigger on one, can't resist the price....
