Just built up a Phantom v3 in raw. I struggled with the routing a bit, then realized taking the shock out makes it way easier. Also route the cables before installing the fork.
Have both dropouts, running the short ones. Feels nicely balanced, but looking forward to trying the longer ones too. Seated, the cockpit is cramped. Maybe something I just need to get used to. I tried a 55m stem instead of the 40mm stem, but that sucked. Now going to try a smaller fork 120mm vs the 140mm, and also try a riser bar rolled forward a bit.
The magic of this bike is it so adjustable. There just isn't one thing for everyone.
Oh, and I get asked about weight lots with it. 8lb frame. My complete is right at 30 lbs with pedals, magic mary, hans dampf tires no inserts.
