    Its pretty much how I want it finally. Ti bars 600mm (stock bars were just too short... and not titanium), Time Atac Carbon pedals, King/Flow wheels (tubeless), Gravity Dropper 3" Multi-position post (the 4" put the seat too high...I did like the 4" drop but the 3" is almost as sweet), Specialized Toupe carbon seat.

    More than any other pics or commentary I've seen about taking the Moto Ti badgeless, your pic is a very strong testament to going that route! That's a beautiful pic! It looks so much better w/o badges, be they Moto, Moots, Lynskey, or whatever else. I'm considering striping it down to the Ti. Nothing to do w/ the Moto name; I wear it very proudly out on the trail!

    Nice!

    Is that the new folding Moto?

    edit to add: Clearly you were just riding along... (couldn't help it).





    hope your o.k. after that.

    Lol, actually, I was practicing my flatland bunny hops on it, and I guess I hopped a little too high. I will admit I have been fairly abusive to the bike over the past year (I wouldn't say abusive enough to warrant catastrophic failure) But hopefully moto's warranty will come through for me.

    And as far as me being o.k. , yeah I'm fine, miraculously so. full story here: http://forums.mtbr.com/motobecane/de...ml#post8547934

    Got a bare brand new frame (no fork or headset) off Ebay and built it up with parts from my old bike.

    9.8kg as shown, on full SLX drivetrain and brakes, medium sized frame.

    Yeah that is sweet. Nice work. I wish my bottom bracket would crap out so I could slap a king in there. Maybe a headset also.

    Nice build out. I rode a Fantom Pro29SL for 2 seasons. It was a great handling bike. I switched over to a Felt Carbon Nine last summer, but I still miss the Moto.

    Yeah, Thanks , I raced my Specialized FSR XC expert last season and felt like I could make a bigger impact with a hardtail so I hope this Moto impresses me, and so far it has the handling characteristics that I'm looking for! Very excited!

    I went from an FSR Expert Disc 120 to the FantomPro29SL. I like the 29er platform much better for climbing, flat out single track, and general XC. It doesn't descend on the technical terrain as easily as the FSR, at least for me. I am not a super technical rider... merely a road rider who enjoys long days on XC single track.

    Here is my Phantom Pro 29er SL with a brand new Maxxis Ardent 2.4 up front. I thought the bike looked good before but that big front tire sends it over the top.

    Got mine today and assembled it. No rides yet...it's raining, turning to snow overnight. Not to mention I'm still waiting on presta adapters so I can fill my tires. I'm quite pleased with the quality of the components, though the seatpost/handlebars/stem have to go. ESPECIALLY the stem. That thing is atrocious and weighs a ton. I was quite impressed to find that the Recon is an air fork. I had been doing research on the components but somehow missed that fact.

    This was my first bike build and the most in-depth I've ever gotten on a bike, but I was able to figure it all out in about 3 hours. It's quite solid and I'm very pleased

    My Gravity Zilla doing what it's meant to do, hauling the Christmas tree to the Christmas tree graveyard. I have about 100 miles on it, mostly road but I have taken it on some easy single track and it handles well. Most of its life will be spent on pavement and fire service roads...love it!

    My 2005 Fantom Comp



    Here's a shot from our trip to Sedona in Sept. of 2011. The Highline trail provided some beautiful views and ass puckering exposure.

    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.

    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.

    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....
