I have tried, but have not found many reviews on it. I have read things like "SC Heckler knockoff"
"don't buy it doesn't support your LBS"
and more of the same, but nothing on what it is like except the blurb from Mountain Bike magazine on the Supergo website. I am not financially in the situation to buy this bike, just curious. Seems like a killer deal for a 5" travel bike. Only downfall being that its a Single pivot design. Anyone ride one of these? Any experiences with Weyless frames? I heard of some issues with last years "67" which is a DH frame, but virtually no info on this bike.

I think that Weyless frame looks swwwweeeeeettt personally! It's set up similar to a Santa Cruz Heckler or Superlight, but at a much lower cost.
Check out the specs... it's a steal! That burnt orange paint looks nice too.
I think they've stepped it up for sure.

My bud used to ride one of the access frames (when they were selling for 100 bucks) and for cross country use it did just fine. Never broke it or anything. I think they are pretty decently made now, thats a damn good price when you consider what a nice ride costs now adays.

I have an access frame...not weyless, but a cheap supergo frame anyways. No problems, seems really well made. Go for it.

If it's a good Heckler knockoff, i.e. the geometry and construction are decent.... I'd hit it

ah sweet brady, glad you enjoyed the brews. I'll be checking them out for sure in July when they set up shop in Denver. I have since been in contact with a few guys that have them and all i have heard is rave review for the bike and the value. I'll have to start saving my pennies now.More fucked up than a cricket in a hubcap

I'm new to biking. I love my DH bike, but it is a killer going uphill much. This bike sounds like a killer deal for weight and in. of travel. Your ideas and opinions are very helpful to this newby. If this deal is as good as it sounds, please let me know.I want a 6" travel 20lb MTB. I found the 20lb MTB, but only good for riders under 87 pounds.
