    Difference between Bridgestone XO-2 and XO-4?

    I have inherited both a bridgestone XO-2 and XO-4. I have read up more or less about what these models are all about, but what are the real differences between the two? Is it just that the XO-2 is higher-end? Is the X0-4 more suitable for women. If you have any answers, let me know. Thanks.

    I've been working on this one all morning, and still can't come up with a good answer . Apparently the XO-4 is considered a 'cult' bike, whatever that means! If I'm reading correctly, the XO-4 appears to be the higher end bike. What kind of components, how old?

    Um, pictures?

    The XO-2 is the higher end of bike of the two. Try Sheldon's site to start.

    You are very fortunate indeed. My main riding bike for the past 13 years has been an XO-2. Do both bikes have moustache bars on them?
