Just got my Fantom Cross Pro yesterday. The shipping was a little late not because of Bikes Direct but UPS. So I had to wait an extra 3 days which sucked. Out of the box everything as described. Took it into the shop and spent 23 bucks to finish what I couldn't.
15 for a rear wheel true, ouch!

The Sram is great and the frame looks nice.

My only complaint is the cheap ass handlebars and stem but the handlebars are just plain crappy. I knkow the bike is under a grand which is cool however the saddle, seat post, stem and handlebars are just crap.

Oherwise I look forward to CX season on my bike.

Well for one the saddle and seat post weigh a ton. The quality of the handlebars is a joke.
They seem like they are powder coated a coat hanger. The stem you can tell is made of cheap quality material. When you look at what it would cost to upgrade these four items the bike is going to get into the Ridley price range thats on at Competitve Cyclist.
