    New question here. Fly Pro or Fly 9357 or Fantom 29er Clydeproof?

    Hi All,
    I have a 700ht currently but want a lighter bike. I ride mostly singletrack XC here in NC and also ride some paved roads occasionally. I'm 6'2" and 225 and dont jump off much more then the curb . Can either of these handle my weight or will I break em? i'm intrigued by the fantom 29er also but cant find any listing of the weight and at a 33" standover I think the 20" wouldnt leave me much clearance anyways. All comments welcome, thanks in advance.

    I'm 6'7" and 270 and have ridden a Fantom 29 Pro for about a year now without breaking anything (except bent saddle rails). I'm not into drops or big time bike abuse, but I ride hard on intermediate trails and the bike has handled everything I've thrown at it.

    Thanks for the input. Now if I can just decide on which model to get I'll be set. I'm trying to hold off on buying til the newer models come out so maybe I can get deal on closeout. I'm assuming new bikes come out late august early sept. just like cars?
    Thanks
