Well ok thanks for the help. What would recommend for 475 or under? please watch the weight a little. im only 15 and 125lbs. Getting a 28+lbs bike is kinda hard sometimes.(danscomp isnt always right on weight, Look on company of bike and usally its light). But ya what would you guys recommend? thanks

Wtp beyond is nice too. Seriously don't worry about weight. I rode a 40lb bike when i was like 12 - 13 and had no problem bunny hoping up alot of stuff, curbs benches boxes, could hop that bike about 2 skateboard decks high, sometimes 3. Used to hit huge dirt jumps on it with no problem, learned how to grind on it, and once i moved to a lighter bike i was alot better. Its almost better to learn on a heavy bike. Be a man!

I know my first bike was like 35lbs. and I could still manage. This was when I was about 14, definitely a bit smaller and much weaker than I am now. If weight is that big of a concern, start taking some protein and lifting...

The Beyond is a really nice bike and that's a good price. But like Fuzzy said, the WTP and Kink are solid.

ya. i only started riding a year ago. The bike i have is 34pds. I can do all i need but the bigger stuff i do on other peoples bike. its a lot smoother. Then i decided i would do a big double on mine(6ft tall 30ft far) and i landed hard and my forks are at a 90 degree angle=(( and yes i did eat it. Ya i just dont want a super heavy bike but 27 28 is good with me cause 28 really aint much. Well i think im gonna get the wtp beyond. I really like that its running a 28 10 not he 25 9. Thanks for all the help guys. Its been awasome. Thsnks again.

The TRL2 is a rip-off for the price. There's not enough chromoly on it. The WTP is a much better bike for the price. Twenty-six pounds isn't that much at all either. And besides, the TRL2 weighs just as much.
