Anybody know how much this weighs? Can it handle drops/jumps? It's a steel frame (which I don't know anything about).
Sorry for a late response bro, drops.jumps would depend on what your description or trails are like, 1-2-3-4-5-6-7 foot drops with 2-4-6-8-10-20-30 foot gaps????
Aluminum frames are very rigid and solid meaning your body is the suspension.
CroMo Steel will flex some allowing the smoothest more comfortable ride on a HT.
You can hear the density between the two if you tap a key or flick your finger nail on the two. Aluminum will sound dense and solid your basic boom... Steel will ping like a spring very vibrant and musical.
The Werx SS was designed as a singlespeed XC bike. The geometry really isn't designed for jumps and drops. If you are looking for a bike for jumps and drops, have you looked at our Steel Reserve and/or Thread bikes? Those are designed specifically for more aggressive riding.
