4/5 (1 Reviews)

Product Description

Cyclocross, a growing discipline in North America, traditionally takes place in fall. Closing their racing season on a high note many continue to compete on rough, technical circuits. To face this kind of event, a bike has to be sturdy, reliable, light and comfortable - a challenge that the FANGO faces easily!

Strengths:    Steel steel steel. Custom geometry available for a $150 upcharge. That can't be matched.

Weaknesses:    I wish they had longer top tubes in their standard geometry for us tall guys.

Bottom Line:   
Excellent cx machine. Steel, stiff and lightweight. Every year Marinoni refine their cx frame a little bit more. For '09 they flattened the top tube for easier shouldering. A Canadian handmade racing solution.

So; anyone here ridden the PDX AND the new (300tpi) Fango?

How do they compare? It's hard for me to want to switch a tire that I really like for all but the muddiest or driest condition, but I will if you can convince me the PDX is superior to a Fango.Read More »

Replacing latex tube in Challenge Fango

I blew out my Challenge Fango yesterday, not sure how. Tire is fine, so I was going to send it to to have them replace the tube. After reading that latex tubes will resist pinch flatting better than butyl tubes, I'm looking to get the Challenge superlite latex tube. It looks like they ... Read More »

Grifo or Fango?

If you could only have one set of tubs (for now, others may be added later), would you go with the Fango or the Grifo? I've heard quite a few people say that the Fango is faster but with more grip, so I'm not really sure what to choose. It's usually not muddy here, and when it does rain it's not ... Read More »
