I'm looking for an affordable bike to do what I would describe as light free-riding. Nothing higher than maybe eight foot drops (on a good day). I also like to ride up the trails so I can not get anything to bighit oriented. The Weyless XP seems to fit the bill but I would like to here from those who have ridden one. How does it compare to the Moment, Stinky, Dirtbag, etc.?

use the search feature for this forum. the weyless frame has been talked about here plenty. and a note to others use the search feature BEFORE posting threads like "what color bullit?" or "whats up with weyless" or "hows the scream". this stuff has already been discussed.

I have a buddy with an XP Pro. He really likes it, but it's a pretty XC oriented bike. I don't think an 8' drop would be such a great idea on that bike. Also, remember the head angle is XC as well.

Look at the Weyless 67 (Weyvoless can fill you in on the finer points) I hear it does the trick for a good price. Don't know how it climbs though.

Hey Beej,

I am not sponsored by them, but I do have to admit that they have been awfully kind to me over the past 2 years. As for the XP, I cannot comment. I have not ridden one, but I have seen them up close, and gave the rear swingarm a good tug. This I can tell you, the rear swing arm is as laterally stiff or stiffer than the one on my 04 Heckler. If you are talking about bigger drops, and such, I would recommend you step up to the 67. I just got word 2 days ago that the new 05's have arrived. I'm not quite sure when they will hit the store shelves yet, but mine should be here by Monday. I'll post pics once I get it. But for now, here's some pics of the new and old....Sorry to all of you who've already seen these.

If you decide on the 67, it can be built up to suit your uphill and downhilll needs. Supergo sold last years model with a Sherman flick on the front, and double ring bashguard setup. They weighed about 36 lbs I think. I used to have mine setup with a Boxxer on the front, and triple ring, and I would pedal it everywhere.
