    Motobecane Fantom Cross PRO Titanium Cyclocross Bikes

    Motobecane Fantom Cross PRO
    Titanium Cyclocross Bikes

    Should be here in few days. Couldn't find anything close to it, we have about 7 LBS where I live, either too tall or not available in my size, not to mention the parts and frame quality.

    Well, read this.
    After I got my confirmation that payment received, and shipping information on September/22/2011 that it will be delivered by UPS on 09/27/2011 Tuesday.
    Instead of receiving the bike from UPS, at night I receive a email from pay pal that I have been refunded, and another email from bikes direct (Lady name Karla) that this particular bike is sold out. And they would give a discount if I buy another bike,and on September/30/2011 Friday, I decided to buy the TEAM, it is $1999.95 cross titanium bike (49cm), until today she is thinks she does not have it or she has it that she has to find out from the warehouse. meanwhile you can see it in their website it is available.
    Only reason I'm dealing with her is that she is the only one that can apply the discount, today it is October 3rd. and that's where we are.

    It just arrived, it is too late. I just put together too see if everything is in place, so far not a scratch. They also throw in Shimano 105 pedals

    Looks nice, I was going to order one as well but they were sold out in my size so I settled for the alloy version, which is nice but it would have been better to have Ti for cross racing. Lets hear how it rides I'm curious the alloy one rides like alloy harsh but not the worst I've ridden.

    I'm sorry, I don't know alot about CX, but it wouldn't it be preferable to have MTB pedals where the orientation of the pedal didn't matter, so getting into the pedal was faster?

    Thanks for following up on the purchase.

    Q: What does the bike weigh now that it's not in the box?
    Q: What size frame did you buy and what width bars came with it?

    Bike is 18lbs and it is 49cm. I was first going for "Pro" but as you see my previous posts, BD run out of it, and I decided to go with the "Team". It came with Shimano 105 pedals, but I'll instal MTB pedals. Needs some adjustments, I did not measure the handlebars they look same size as my other bikes

    Wheel base lenght

    Anyone know if the wheel base lengths on the website are accurate for the Ti Cross bikes? They seem short given that the Ti Cx bikes have a 43 cm CS.
