“…Last Tuesday I decided to purchase the Motobecane Fantom Cross...well packaged, arrived within 3 days, and went together fairly easily...ride on Sunday and had a blast...bike looks great, is very solid, and is very well put together. It is very fun to ride...”

“I bought a motobecane cross bike in fall... It has been working well for me...by far the best spec'ed bike for the money.”

N. Jennings
“...an excellent bike for the all-around rider...ride to school through some of the worst ride conditions...Shifting is smooth, weight is quite reasonable....I'll compete in triathlons...throw some skinny tires on the bike and I'm highly competitive....in the race averaging 20.7 mph with the people that spent $1000's on their bikes.”

D. Hinten
“...Very pleased - all as described... Spent probably 1 hr putting it together - not really pushing it, just tinkering as I went along. Pretty decent components and the bike seems really nice and I have enjoyed it on one 12 mile jaunt... Real happy...”

M. Lerner

"... ...I am completely satisfied with my purchase. I bought this not for cyclocross but for century rides so I could get higher volume tires..."

"..Great value - and very light! I'm very happy with this for my commute. I'm surprised at the good quality level given the price that I paid."

Cyclo Cross is Sunday morning bike-race madness. It's all the fun you can stand. Lap after lap around a dirt course you can't entirely ride; You've got to run some of it with your bike on your shoulder. That is what makes the Fantom CX such a versatile bike - it has to be fast, durable, light and capable in nearly all conditions and THAT makes it the perfect bike for everyday, fast, durable riding in most any condition.

The 18 speed Shimano Tiagra/Sora equipped Fantom CX is the ULTIMATE all purpose Motobecane bike for 2014.
The frame is the Butted 7005 aluminum alloy tubing, custom butted and shaped with an engineered downtube.

, a Cross-specific model with a 1.125" steerer and front fender mounts
Note: Fork is black or bodycolor (NoChoice)

Truvativ Compact
Gives you 95% of the gear range of a heavier triple while being lighter than a double crankset

make this the perfect all purpose commuter or cross-town bike

The components are carefully chosen to withstand the rigors of cyclocross or your daily commute. The TruVativ Compact Cranks are perfectly geared for almost any wicked course or cross-town latte run with 36/50T chainrings and sealed BEARING bottom bracket.

A Motobecane Fantom CX is an incredibly versatile bicycle.
Nearly as effective off-road as a mountain bike and way more fun. Put smooth-tread tires on it and it makes a great road bike. Put lights and fenders on it and ride it to and from work or to and from Yellowstone. You can also attach a rear rack to the rear rack mounts AND a fender to the front fork.

WHY IS THE PRICE SO LOW? We received a very small shipment of these from Motobecane to sell because some forks are painted the same color as the frame and other forks are black.(no choice) This Fantom CX cross bike is 100% functional and factory spec in every way except for difference in fork paint which does not affect the function of the fork.
