    Motobecane Fantom Comp DS Clearance?

    I Googled the the above and came up with this:

    http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/...ance.htm#specs

    I never saw a clearance section at BD. The only reason I haven't already bought this bike at this price is I'm afraid it's too big. The current price on the Comp DS is $1095.00. This one is $795.00!? I'm wondering if it's a customer return or something.

    EDIT: I clicked on checkout and the price there says $895.00? Very strange.

    I bought a Fantom Comp DS in 2010 for $895, it was a 2009, its sold out, the one you googled has to be an older model, depending on your inseem, that 20.5 inch bike may work, or you may have to wear a cup,LOL mine is a 18.5 with my inseem at 31, it fits tight, but it works, here is the sold out 2010's.. good luck

    If you look at the components of the clearance model vs. the $1095 priced model, you'll see why there is a price difference. I just tried to buy the $1095 model, but it's sold out (in the 47cm size) I'm toying with the Fantom Elite DS 3x10, but it's a little outside the budget (as I would still have to replace the pedals, crankset and bb).

    The clearance bike has mechanical brakes not hydrolic ... there may be other differenceds too, I did not look that closely. I have a Motobecane Fantom Comp DS and love it. It is a little heavy, probably about 33lbs. I changed the tires, seat, pedals and grips, they were all crap.
