    My '04 Fantom XC powder coated last year. Quite heavy at 32.5 lbs..... I use it as a training bike so when I race with my Scalpel, it feels feathery light. All components upgraded except the frame and rear shocks. I like the aggressive geometry and tight cockpit of this moto.

    The fantom comp
    This is (was) my fantom. I recently robbed some of the parts off it to build up a Haro sonix VL120. I'm looking forward to getting this mangle back operational though. I think the moto's are one of the most underated bikes out there. Not race bikes (as you can see I tried it anyway), but certainly all mountain work horses.

    That Fantom elite Frame looks similar to my kona kikapu frame.

    This is my Fantom Elite. I have upgraded the front brake and front derailleur. All the QR's and tires.

    Oh, someone emailed me a question. They would like to buy a FS fantom comp frame on ebay and would like to know if the tires that he already had would work with this frame. 26in wtb wheels and 2.7 tires.

    Will a 2.7 tire work with that frame?

    wow 2.7 is mega wide....i honestly dont know why you'd want anything that wide, but right now i run 2.1's on my fantom comp ds, and i'd say there's 3/8" of clearance at least on each side of the tire, so if they do in fact ACTUALLY measure 2.7" wide, then yes they SHOULD work...that is if in fact my 2.1" tires are actually 2.1".....

    This is not for me. I got a email and someone was asking me about this. here is the email received.

    "Hello Guys,

    Looking for some help, I’m looking to buy the 2007 FANTOM COMP DS from this Link in Ebay:



    http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-07-Motobecan...QQcmdZViewItem



    The problem is I have a pair of WTB tires size 26*2.7” will they fit on a 16” frame????



    Please Help,



    Thank you, "

    If that size tire wont fit. Then how about the maximum tire size he can run. I would like to give him some kinda answer.

    well like i said, in THEORY it will fit...b/c the opening is large enough....but i would not suggest running that size tire b/c you do want more space than what he'll end up with between the tire and the chainstay...for mud clearance, etc....if his wheel gets the least bit out of true, he wont even be able to LIMP off the trail, b/c there's no tolorence there....see with a 2.1 tire you could atleast ride to the car if it's not INSANELY bent...just some stuff for you to pass along to him....tell him good luck, but dont use that tire....

    Not sure about a 2.7 and IMHO, I would not go wider than a 2.3 for several reasons as snobrder5 mentioned..... it is just not practical at all. Even if it fits, you will have no clearance whatsoever to allow for mud, etc.

    Thanks all! I sent the information along. I told him that the standard tire for that frame was a 2.1 so a 2.3 would be the maximum I would go. Told him new tires are cheep and that was a good deal on that frame and said good luck on his buying decision.

    I’m sorry, I personally don’t have any photos of the 16” frame. However, my fantom has the 18” frame. I realize it’s not exactly what you wanted but it does give you some idea.

    Photo’s above… It is a awesome bike.
