    Those are pretty decent bikes actually...very similar to the older Bullit. Which specific Marz fork do you have there? Yeah, my only concern is the length of exposed seatpost. What size frame is that and what's your size? Nice looking crankset...Big Earl's?

    thanks for all the nice reviews i really appreciate that

    i will still replace Rear Derailleur and lighter handle bar

    i am like 5.6 and seat post is not above the max line i only ride like that when i ride to work when i ride trials i lower it a little bit, and i feel very comfortable with it i like when my legs stretch fully straight when i peddle.

    and the Fork is Marzocchi Bomber Dirt Jumper 130mm w/ 20mm axle

    i love ebay too. nice build up. it is too shiny though, and your seat looks too clean. you better go ride and maybe even feign a little wreck if you have too. the dirt gods may start to get angry with you otherwise.

    Most excellent. I love my Weyless XP, and I've also got a Blur and a Tracer. The Weyless is not always my favorite ride, but many times it is.

    It's essentially a copy of the old style heckler actually. It was produced by Kinesis who was making some SC bikes around the same time that Weyless was selling theirs.

    I rode an XP for a season, it was a great bike. I sold it to a friend and it's still holding up great.
