    Motobecane Fantom Cross Team Titanium

    Finally bike tuned and ready, today I took it for 8 mile ride, it feels very predictable and shifting very crisp, bike is very light for me, it came with Shimano 105 pedals, but I only use MTB pedals, you'll see M540 on the bike. Bar top brakes are pushed outside you might notice in some of the pictures I'm fine with it even with full winter glove but some people with large hands might have issue this bike is 49 cm.[ATTACH][ATTACH][ATTACH][ATTACH][ATTACH][ATTACH][ATTACH][ATTACH]team ti 004 (Medium).jpg[/ATTACH][/ATTACH][/ATTACH][/ATTACH][/ATTACH][/ATTACH][/ATTACH][/ATTACH]

    Looks great. I've been thinking about getting one.

    Mind if I ask what size frame it is? I like the short wheelbase on these bikes, but am a bit worried about toe overlap with the front wheel. How's it feel on your bike?

    It is 49cm. ride is great since the bike is about 17.5 lbs. I climb a hill faster on this bike. I have a Fuji cross comp, both bikes geometriy looks and feels same to me except you can feel immediately how lite the Moto is. The Fuji is about 21.5 lbs

    I got a 58" team ti about the same time wbw got his. No toe overlap when I'm clipped in. I'm new to cross and sometimes when I 'm practicing remounting I miss clipping in and kind overshoot the pedal a little I bump the tire with my toe. When I get it right no issue with overlap.

    Nice. What's the tire clearance like? Does it have fender mounts?

    I'd consider this bike although I'd change the crankset and I'm not sure about the 130mm rear spacing.

    The tires are 700x32C on this bike. Still plenty of clearance
