    “The Phantom's offering!”

    The Good: Great color selection, classic matte black/tan rim tired or matte purple/green; both look great, I personally have the matte Purple/Green. Stem (Eastern Compressor) is really solid, I feel as if I can trust it no problem, and it looks tough as hell. Seat is comfortable, a pleasure; yet effectively firm. The pedals are pretty good, reflectors just bust off while performing tricks, they wont last long. Sprocket - (Eastern Phorcys) - Great Sprocket, low profile, matte finish, does it's job. Sealed Hubs - front and back, this brings peace of mind, and makes for a smooth glide.

    The Bad: Cranks - Not necessarily bad, just not very specific which ones they are, some sort of no-name, non aftermarket model. They are nice however. Bars - Just seem to not be quite what I am looking for, in terms of grip area/angle. Grips - the new Truffle grips, they're nice... if you do not mind you hands moving around on a wobbly surface of rubber. Causes blisters due to a lack of stability. (Esp; if wearing gloves)

    Overall Review:

    I love the bike, if feels great, I feel it suits me quite well.

    After a few upgrades, I can confidently say this is all I need!
