A blog that follows my bike riding adventures on road, gravel, and dirt.

Well I received a gift of a slightly used Motobecane Fantom 29 frame a few weeks ago. Nothing spectacular but I was fairly certain it was a lighter alternative to my Dawes Deadeye frame. Turns out it was a full THREE POUNDS lighter! So using existing parts, wheels I built, and purchasing a few new parts...I built up a nice little 29er single speed. Since it has such a wide variety of parts, I have dubbed it the FrankenFantom29!
Rusty (my son) and I got to take it out mountain biking at one of our local parts. Nothing too technical but some nice groomed dirt trails for me to test the bike out on and for Rusty to get some off road practice in.
