Model/Year: 2006

Pros: Spirited climber, nimble, light

Cons: Nope.

Recommendation: The Fantom Comp is right at home in tight, twisty singletrack and can eat up some technical trails too. The Kinesis frame is very very light. A very nimble bike for the price.

Model/Year: 2011

Pros: Price...Price...Price...Very solid feel, somewhat light frame,great components as is. Handling is superb and controlled.

Cons: Motobecane controversy and bike snobs. V-brake bosses.

Recommendation: Perfect for entry to intermediate. Good base for some upgrades. Overall good value for price. Mount the right tires for your terrain. Tora U turn solo or Reba would make this bike even sweeter with hydraulic brakes but, then that would be the fantom comp. But, probably only noticible to experienced riders. Wheels have taken the abuse of a 230lb rider. BB5's are nice and better than the Tektro Aquilas IMO.

Pros: Bike has been good so far. Solid components from the deore to the rock shock dart3 w/ lock out and avid disc brakes. Took it into a LBS to have it tuned up and checked and they said it was a solid bike.

Cons: Nothing as of yet,

Recommendation: Good bike for the money. Bought mine for under 600.

Pros: Affordable (paid 695), good components, pretty light, avid disc brakes

Cons: no lockout on Tora fork would have been nice, seat

Recommendation: Really enjoy riding this bike, its taken everything I have thrown at it, I like the Deore components and the Avid disc brakes, sadly I bent the seat on my first fall which was kind of sad and I would really enjoy a lockout for the long climbs. All together its a great start out cross country bike for less than $700.
