    I got my new Fantom Team,

    I've got 30 miles on it in 3 days, I've put Oury grips on it, Schwalbe Fat Albert 2.25 tires, a 11x32 cassette, and took the stickers off the rims, those thing were just too much, they almost blinded ya..I read people get rid of the bars, I like them, but then we have tight trails and them trees hurt..
    I've got it sorted out now, and bettered my lap times on my regular trail from 46+min to 44.25 and my speed from 8.8 mph to 9.0 mph, I just changed the cassette today (traded it to the LBS for the 11x32, they took the old one off, and put the new one on for $20), now the bike has the same set up as my old bike so I should see more improvements next time out. This bike is amazing, I'm still have trouble getting used to the XTR shifting, the cassette should help that, I had a XT derailaur on the last bike and SLX shifters, simular but these shift much different and don't have indicators on the handlebars, I'm making alot of mistakes and still bettered my lap times from my Fantom Comp..this Fantom Team is an Incredable Bike, I get compliments on it everytime out.
    I've started passing people instead of everyone passing me, not that I don't get passed, LOL, not bad for a 60+yr old man, with 2 months riding trails..
