    ****NEW*** Sette Phantom Race Bikes

    So I was surprised to see this morning that Sette has released 2 new versions of the Sette Phantom. Unfortunately I cant link you to the sites, but I do have the pics and some info to share

    Sette Phantom
    Changes
    Sette USA was able shave 20 grams off the frame.

    Fox 32 F-Series F-Fit RLC fork which bumps the travel from 80 to 100mm

    Brakes upgraded to Avid Elixir CRs

    Wheelset is comprised of Stan’s ZTR 355 rims laced to a set of American Classic Terrain Disc Hubs



    Sette Phantom Elite
    Changes
    wheels are top of the line Mavic Cross Max SLRs

    The cassette is upgraded to XTR

    Marta SL Magnesium brakes

    Elite includes the addition of a Fox 32 F-Series F-Fit RLC fork which bumps the travel from 80 to 100mm

    hovers over the scale at a ghost-like 19.2lbs (average medium)

    New Phantom with Fox Fork $2699.98
    New Phantom Elite with Fox Fork $3899.98

    This was accomplished by removing the V-brake bosses..

    Interesting observation, must have have been some pretty heavy V-Brake Bosses.

    Very nice. I wonder why they didn't use the ZTR wheel's on the Elite, would of made it cheaper and lighter.

    I'm sure this is a great xc rig and you can't argue w/the build (nice!) but I wonder how the resale value is? has anyone tried to re-sell one?

    Regardless, it's great to finally see a nice carbon hardtail at a realistic price!

    They have been on sale for at least 2 weeks, perhaps even the whole month. They did/are doing a carbon sale. The Phantom frame is being sold for $100.00 less also.

    Actually its not. The only thing I dislike about PP is they put stuff on sale, but never change the price.

    I just ordered one last week. Should be coming in tonight!

    I'm sure setting expectations on resale value of the whole bike is sheit... as well as the frame alone.

    My plan is to ride/race the frame to the ground for a year or two and then go with a Ti frame. The parts alone are worth more than the price they sell at even if the parts are old stock and they just want to get rid of them (I'm estimating about 2 years old).

    Will get a report together on how the rig rides...

    Resale value will be bad. Can't see it being much worse than other stuff though. The parts alone if sold used can fetch quite a bit of cash.

    Who buys an internet retailer mountain bike with an eye towards the resale value?! BTW, I really wish I had seen these before I built up my Air9 as it looks like a darn nice ride and I've been less than impressed by the whole 29'r "revolution".

    Was the $1100 dollar price with the XTR components and the Fox RLC fork? That is insane!!

    No, I think he was refering the the Sette Flite. The Phantom I dont think has ever been that low, and the Fox fork versions have only been out since the date of this topic.
