Date Reviewed: October 7, 2003

Strengths:    Fast, comfortable, stable at all speeds. Very nimble once you get the hang of it. Fits tall riders (I'm 6'7" / 225 lbs). Shifts well. Stops on a dime.

Weaknesses:    No shock absorbers on the stock model (aftermarket stuff is available at a price) making rough roads slower going. Backward visibility is more like a car, so one must learn to use mirrors.

Bottom Line:   
This bike has exceeded all my expectations. Now that I'm pushing 50 years, my wedgie was killing my wrists and neck, even after my 15 minute commute. Now I even ride my bike just for fun. This bike is fast and comfortable, no matter how long the ride.

Phantom Cross Pro vs. Airborne Delta (Thoughts?)

I'm having a difficult time deciding between a Moto Phantom Cross Pro or an Airborne Delta. The Phantom has better components (Rival) but the Delta has a much better frame (BB30, 135 rear hub).
