    Motobecane Fantom 29 vs Motobecane Outcast 29

    Other than the added 9 speed configuration, is the newly added Motobecane Fantom 29 better (or worse) or different in anyway than the Motobecane Outcast 29?

    http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/...antom29_08.htm - fantom

    http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/...utcast29_x.htm - outcast

    Im thinking to purchase the fantom 29 rather than the outcast 29 because of the added gears that I was going to end up installing anyways (i'm sure it would cost me at least $100 to do this, which is the difference in price between the two)

    If its the same exact bike just + gears config, im gonna go for it!

    What do you guys think?

    They look the same to me not that I looked that closely but I can't see how there can be much difference one cheep bike to another. Makes more sense to get the gears on the bike in the first place. As I said in the other post I would have spend $100 more for this http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/...cliff29pro.htm it looks like the best deal with minor parts upgrades mostly the brakes BB5 are a big let down IMO

    Well my only issue is that I like everything about the outcast 29, but eventually I would be upgrading it to 9 speed. Would it cost more than $100 to do this? - it is 9 speed ready according to bikes direct.

    yes twice as much at least what's the wheel is it ready then you still need a cassette shifter and rear D things do up.
