Default 2015 cct

Hello,

Im in between the 2015 CCT or a magnum.

Would love to see some real live pics of the 2015 CCT and magnum colours.
Probably gona go for a cct but for some odd reason that green magnum speaks to me?

Any magnum riders had problems with ground clearance?

Thanks

The Magnums are sweet. It doesn't come with a trunk tho, like the CCT does. If I recall correctly, the Magnum is also lowered when compared to the CC/CCT.

Right, but it also comes with a larger front wheel, so clearance isn't as compromised as it could have been.

Not sure what good this will do you -- nothing like seeing bikes in person, to judge color -- but here's a shot I took of a Magnum at the NYC cycle show a month or so ago. At least, I think that's a Magnum.

That is NOT a Magnum...regular Cross Country, with Factory paint
The differences between the CCT,and the Magnum, are significant
Two totally different bikes, if you ask me.
Here is a pic of my current MAGNUM, and a pick of my previous REGULAR Cross Country

I know they look VERY similar, but there are lots of differences, and EVEN more differences, when you compare CCT, to MAGNUM

Oops, sorry for my incorrect post. Just flashy paint on an XC, huh. I have to pay more attention...

Is this one of those trick question? It's like say the Highball is completely different than the Vegas... Paint, wheels and ride height don't make the same models different IMHO.

The CCT...T for TOUR, is exactly that...2 up Touring,Large windshield,FULL lowers,GIGANTIC Trunk,with passenger ammenities...BUILT for COMFORT

MAGNUM is more of a "streamlined speedster", ROCKIN' down the motorway, type of bike,and in my opinion, NOT really meant for a passenger

So there you have it
One is built for COMFORT
The other, built for SPEED

SAME bike???

I know they are different.
I love the mean look of the magnums and love the practicallity of the tour.

I've ridden a tour (magnum not available), good experience.
The tour also has the wind management system with lowers and fairing wings.

Does this make a difference in turbulence and wind noise or was it really the forged crashbars that were the problem as I've read a few times?

Why I ask for real life pics is because I live in Belgium and cant see them nor ride the magnum.
I have to order from a leaflet, makes it hard to judge colour.
