GG.

“…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...”

NMS
“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..."

S.Y.
"..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."

The CX should be called "SV" for Super Versatile.
The CX Cross does it all. Cyclo Cross Sunday morning bike-race madness is 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 and 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 previous version was great with 18 speeds. Now, Motobecane USA has given the Fantom CX even more versatility. Now with 27 Speed Shimano Tiagra/Sora equipped Fantom CX is the ULTIMATE all purpose Motobecane bike.
The frame is the same pro-grade frame used on their high-line Fantom Cross PRO. Precision welded with advanced, Butted 6061 or 7075 aluminum alloy tubing, custom butted and shaped with an engineered downtube. To meet the incredibly high demand, Motobecane USA is building these frames with either 6000 or 7000 series aluminum alloy. The specs, weight and performance has been engineered to be the same.

Tough, Fast and Versatile. The CX components are carefully chosen to withstand the tough conditions of cyclocross or your daily commute.

CrMo FORK
, a Cross-specific model with a 1.125" steerer and front fender mounts

FSA Triple
CRANKSET
Gives you a hill-flattening gear range
The FSA Vero Triple Cranks are perfectly geared for almost any wicked course or cross-town latte run with 50/39/30T chainrings and sealed cartridge 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 or even slick 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 for a very green; great-looking; grocery-getter.
