    Outcast 29

    Okay since I have started growing gills here in CT I have been riding my Outcast instead of Dos Niner since I am 6'6 265 I really don't want to destroy it on the snoty rocks and roots here. I must say I am really enjoying this SS thing I made a few upgrades i.e. longer bars a new stem 22t rear cog some VP x-133 pedals I had laying around. I am into it for 450 dollars.

    Now being 40 years old a big guy I don't think my wrists can take too many more rigid rides, so am I able too make the front end squishy? Is the geometry correct?. Those Alex rims are also bomb proof I ride the same loop as I do with the Dos and those things have held true no matter what I do to them. I don't want to lose that front rim if I go suspension in the front any ideas out there. RST make a 29er fork with rim brake bosses for around $350. Interested in all your thoughts.

    the motobecane site shows the Fantom 29er and the Outcast 29er as having the same geometry: http://www.motobecane.com/29geometry.html

    Bikes direct is selling the phantom 29er with both an 80 and 100mm fork:
    http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/...om29pro_SL.htm (something tells me the fork may ship as an 80mm?)

    anyway, I'd go with a 100..... (but you may have to go 80mm to get rim brakes)

    good luck
