    Motobecane Fantom 29PRO SL - singlespeed

    i live in south florida and decided that i wanted to get another toy. can you ever have too many bikes?

    i rode it this past weekend for the first time (hence why it's so clean!) and it was so much fun.

    i went with the surly singleator (32x17) as a cheap way of converting this bike to a SS.



    'ok' chainline


    swapped out smallblocks for mountain kings
    ride more. work less.

    Where do you ride in S. FL? I was down in West Palm last summer and the bulk of my relatives live in Orlando. Everything is flat down there and full of sand!

    Bike looks nice. Funny how many folks have 29rs now that I just got back into riding. Almost making me feel like I should have just gone that route myself.

    fort pierce is between orlando and west palm.

    a recent video i took there -

    quiet waters is in deerfield beach, 30 minutes south of west palm


    markham is down in sunrise, about 1 hour from west palm.
    super fun trail. not as singlespeed friendly as the two above but can be done.
    ride more. work less.

    Dang it! I watched the video and now I am dieing to go ride. I get off work in an hour but it has been raining off and on since last night so everything will be a mud hole! Just lame. Got my brand new GT Peace yesterday and swaped out a bunch of parts on it so it is ready to roll!

    Looks like a fun trail. Those nice little white patches of sand would make me nervous at speed though. Funny seeing you riding through palm trees. All I seem to see if Pine trees up here.

    Did you buy a complete bike and toss the shifters and triple crank or did you just buy the frame/fork?
