Robson (Motobecane Fantom 29 PRO)
"...Frame is strong....this (Motobecane) one just goes and I used to ride it very hard in Ringwood. I even raced on it in Jungle and Ringwood..."
BB Thompson (Fantom Comp 29er) ". Bike is relatively light, very good value for the price. …All good parts…tubeless tire rims and hyd disc brakes. Just a really good bike for the money."
Joe H. (Fantom 29 X7)
"…a completely trail capable bike and I meant to prove it as I took it to Fruita, CO for it's inaugural shakedown within days of it's build up. It handled everything with ease, proved to be flickable, with a great balance of climbing and descending ability."
Chip (Fantom 29 X series) "Over all I am absolutely, positively, beyond all my expectations, blown away by this bike. If someone would have told me how much of a difference this bike would make...I would not have believed them. It's light and fast. It goes up any hill as easily as riding on flat ground. It stops without failure and I never miss a gear."

What do these NEW Fantom 29er mountain bikes compare to?
In general, other 29er mountain bikes with Shimano XT 1X11 won't have the highly regarded XT disc brakes. They will also cost around $2500+ Tax. Compare to Trek's 29ers with mixed, lesser level Deore and non series brakes, around $1700.
How much does that $1700+tax Specialized weigh since it has lower level parts but costs more? Bikes with similar parts will weigh similarly. The price and equipment is the biggest difference. The Motobecane Fantom29 PRO XT 1X11 has unquestionably Better Parts and Better Price of $1499. The Specialized has lower level parts and lower tech 10 speed drivetrain, do you think the Specialized MTB is lighter?
If you want a light weight bike - 23 lbs or so - those are going to be at least $4,000 from anywhere else. Bikesdirect has 23 lb* (est) bikes here for about half that :) - http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/motobecane/plus-boost-bikes/29er-boost-bikes-ftm-team-ti.htm
