i'm moving to portland in a few weeks and i've decided that i desperately need to buy a bike with clearance to run fenders and big tires in order to navigate through the rainy portland winters. my budget is pretty tight so i've narrowed it down to the fantom cross uno ($400) and the kilo WT ($440). at first i was set on the FCU but i've been drawn more and more to the WT because it seems to be better spec'd for the money and i'm not going to have a lot left over for immediate upgrades (new cog/lockring, that's about it). however, i do like that the FCU has canti mounts as i would like to maybe race cx some day. although that could end up being one of those things that i'll just talk about but never actually do. like these guys.
anyway, does anyone who has experience with either of these bikes have any insight they can offer?
