MTBR.com editor rides a 6by6 and
raves: "...Frame angles are dialed...Held up in big descents...Great value..." Rating: 4 Flamin' Chili Peppers-out-of-5
"...we’re happy to report that the bike checked out just fine…suspension is active vertically and stiff laterally…responsive…held up in the big descents without complaint….angles were just right at 67.5 and 73.5 respectively. For all-around trail riding, it definitely did the job. And at that price you’ll likely have money left over for upgrades.
Frame is stout and laterally stiff, Frame angles are dialed, wheels are strong…attractive lines on it with a top tube bend for improved clearance. Tubes are oversized and welds are beefy.
Component choices are smart…great value bike on the new 27.5 wheel size….best deals and components to deliver a solid package…models shipping now have an updated rear shock called the Monarch R rear shock with Fast Black 7075 shaft and Rapid Recovery rebound damping…this rear shock has excellent, supple performance and has very good mid-stroke damping support.
Bottom line it’s an attractive and affordable package that leaves plenty of budget for down-the-road upgrades.
…exciting sibling model announced for 2015…Team Version with RockShox Pike RCT3 150mm forks, and XTR / XT 20 Speed, Guide Brakes…is ridiculous value and it will be an awesome performer.
Magazine says the Fantom Team carves the trails and has
"components normally found on bikes costing thousands more..."
Rag Magazine editor rides the Fantom Team in several 24 HOUR Races and
addition to The Wilderness 101, I completed the Wild 100
(kilometers) and a 96 mile Duo Class 24-hour race on the Fantom Team.
The biggest compliment I can give the bike is to say that I didn't have
to think much about it during those events. ...The Fantom Team's
handling is well mannered and intuitive. Carving through tight
singletrack is a breeze...the bike loves to go downhill fast. During
the aforementioned 24-hour race, there is a long, fast downhill where I
routinely blew by hardtail racers like they were standing still. When
my quarry wasn't eager to yield the A line, I went for the gusto and
passed on the B line, relying on the Fantom Team's suspension to gobble
up the rocks and ruts..."CLICK HERE FOR WHOLE REVIEW
