Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Throne Phantom. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

5 reasons to buy

  • Owners of the Phantom were pleased with the 4.5lb aluminum frame.
  • Users felt that it was a stiff, robust and well-constructed machine.
  • As far as componentry goes; the Phantom received accolades for the quality of the seat-post, saddle and handlebars.
  • The minimalist style of the bike was an attraction. Some described it as a ‘clean’ look.
  • After using the bike for some time, urban cyclists felt that it was good value and affordable.

4 reasons not to buy

  • Two users were unsatisfied with the pedals, which were too small for their liking.
  • More than one owner commented that, at 80mm, the stem was a little short (with the average being 100mm).
  • In some reviews, the wheel-set was criticized for being lower quality than other parts. Elsewhere, the componentry was described as generally below-average.
  • The phantom has been accused of sporting slippery grips.

Bottom line

The Throne Phantom is not a bargain-basement fixed-gear bike. Criticisms of the frame were difficult to come by. The lightweight aluminum is the big draw-card here. This is a purely fixed-gear bike - not a single-speed. The parts are not high-end but they aren’t low quality either. If this is what you’re after, the Phantom represents a step or two up from el-cheapo entry-level rides.
