Hey all, to begin with I am another dude about to buy a fixed gear bike from bikesdirect and have a quick question right off the bat about regular frame versus a cross frame.
I knew nothing of cross frames before seeing the Fantom Cross UNO on BD and getting intrigued by the fact that it could accommodate beefier tires, which to someone who has never had a road or track bike before sounds good to me in that I can put beefy tires on it and ride it on not-so-smooth terrain a little and not have to worry so much about all the crappy roads in my town. It seems like wit track bikes you blow a lot of tires vs my never having have blown one on my MTN bike. Am I right in these assumptions?
What else am I getting/losing between it and say the Kilo TT? What other differences are there?
