    You may end up swapping that Skye saddle it broke my arse! But I know how you feel except yours is even more plush since I have last years aluminum model. Tear those trails up.

    Finally, I can post some pictures. This was the new bikes maiden voyage. It was amazing. Riding a bike of this caliber is like music for the soul. Here are some crappy point and shoot pics. I LOVE THIS BIKE.

    Man that bike looks great but I have to say it pales to the beauty of that forest. The two make a great pair...

    Enjoy

    Good job! 07 Fantom Comp DS

    Repost from earlier when I put it on the wrong page.

    Here's a few pics of my 07 Fantom Comp DS. This bike was purchased new and complete in January of 07. Since then, I've been upgrading parts as they've worn, and as the urge hits me. The only things that are still stock (other than the frame), are the headset, rear shock, and front fork-although I have changed out the coil spring in the fork for a stiffer one. If you care, you can do a google search for the original specs on the 07 to see what I've upgraded from. My moto has served me well, it's taken my spills and a few spectacular crashes and has yet to fail me. Although I do have some paint scratches due to my sometimes ineptitude on the trails, overall, there is nothing wrong with this bike. The ONLY issue I've had was failure of my rear shock, but that was handled and rebuilt by SRAM under warranty. Using the HIGHLY accurate method of standing on bathroom scales, then picking the bike up and subtracting the difference, it weighs in at approx 30lbs.

    The following is a list of the parts I've upgraded to

    08 Shimano XT M770 shifters
    08 Shimano XT M770 front derailleur
    08 Shimano XT M771 rear derailleur
    08 RaceFace Deus XC 31.8 100mm stem
    08 RaceFace Evolve XC Low Riser bar 31.8
    07 RaceFace Evolve XC seatpost
    WTB Rocket V saddle
    WTB MotoRaptor 2.1 tires
    Mavic Crossride Disc wheelset
    07 Avid Juicy 7 brakes 160mm front and rear
    FSA Afterburner crankset 175mm
    Lizard Skin Peaty lock on grips with ODI thugplugs
    Crank Bros Smarty pedals
    SRAM PG990 cassette which will be replaced before my next ride due to bending of a cog
    SRAM PC991 chain

    Nice! The silver color stands out too.
    I want to know if you can ride up that hill too.

    I wasn't too sure about the silver when I first got it. At the time, I really wanted the Fantom Elite DS in gloss black, but it was beyond my budget. The silver has grown on me though.

    You can't ride up that hill, as the trail is one way to avoid mishaps. However, as soon as you reach the bottom, there is an immediate transition to an uphill, the same height and just as steep as that.

    Well after a year of having my bike I finally figured out what stuff I wanted to upgrade to.

    Mavic wheels
    Kenda upfront and Specialized in the rear (figuring out which ones I like the best. So far Specialized)
    crankbrothers 5050 pedals
    ODI clamp on grips (really like em)

    Race Face EVOLVE AM STEM incoming in the mail soon..

    Within the next 3 months I hope to have it repainted (probably white) and a new front shock.
    Most stuff purchased at my LBS which is important IMO.









    suggestions are welcomed

    The wheel set up is nice. I like the the stealth black look without the decals.

    wolverine - It appears to be a great value although you replaced quite a few components. What does your weigh?

    Here is my 600HT. I purchased the frame and added stuff from another bike I had. I have recently added (not pictured):

    Crank Brothers 5050x pedals
    SRAM 991 chain
    Hope Seat Collar (red)
    Hope Bar Ends (red)
    Hope Skewers (red)
    FSA Carbon Fiber Top Cap
    20mm Carbon Fiber headset spacer
    Avid Rolamajig
    Continental Town and Country tires.

    I also cut down the frame pump bracket in order to center the pump in the frame. Since I no longer have a need for a water bottle carrier due to the camelbak.

    Nice. Those hand grips are pretty wild. You'll have to do a review on those.

    hey Agent, I'm really liking the looks of that stem. What's the rise and length and all? I've been thinking want to try a different stem on my Fantom Comp HT. From the look of that stem on your bike it looks like it's along the lines of what I think I'm looking for. Awesome looking bike, btw. If I had the extra cash to by a full suspension bike, I'd put some serious thought into an XXXds.

    and not to post things in the wrong place, but does anyone know what size clamp i'd need to buy to use the Ritchey SC handle bar that came on the bike and also what the length/rise of the stock stem of my Fantom Comp is? I think if If i can get a slightly shorter stem, and maybe something with more rise it'd make a difference in my control while climbing.

    @ Trek - Thanks for the comments bro. The 2nd pic shows the size right underneath "Thomson". It is 15 Degrees x 110mm long x 25.4 mm diameter, SM-E107. I think it is the toughest and most beautiful stem on the market IMO. Oh and as for size of handlebars, they come in two flavors. One is 25.4mm (like mine) and the other is 31.8mm (handlebars are way bigger in the center compared to the rest of the bar) I know kolyan bought a Ritchey adjustable stem and he can probably go to 30 degrees. Maybe that might work out better for you
