    Motobecane Fantom 29 ??

    What's the deal on the Motobecane Fantom 29 from bikesdirect.com? Seems like a very good price for what you get. I'm not a racer or even hard-core rider, just a late 40's rider looking to see what the 29's are like.

    Has anyone ridden one of these? How does it compare to other 29ers? Any experiences dealing with bikesdirect.com or UPS shipping of bikes?

    Before everyone starts touting the benefits of their favorite brands, please remember some of us have very limited budgets but would still like to experience the world of 29er's.

    I'm 5'9" tall with what seems to be a longer torso than legs, will I be suited to a 29er?

    Thanks in advance for any insight.
