    2004 Specialized Big Hit Spec

    So i been reading reviews on this bike and want to know what you think.
    a guy is selling a size small for 380 dollars and i been dying for a nice mtb for years but cant afford a really good one and this price seems good.
    I know full suspension is bad for climbing and such.
    please inform me on the bike,
    does it have suspension lockouts?
    and what do i look for.
    Much appreciated

    The Big Hit is a Downhill bike. not 100% sure if it has lockout, but you will not be happy with it for climbing at all! Also, for $380, that tells me it may be quite old and will probably require some work and extra $$$ put into it. I would look for more of a cross country bike. the big hit is a good entry level downhill bike. that's my 2 cents. good luck!

    Unless your below 5"7 AND you plan on ripping downhill sections only, get a XC oriented bike.

    I remember the Big Hit Spec. It was different from all other Big Hits with its single pivot suspension. It was a budget full suspension bike, retailed for under $1k iirc. Was basically like a fs P2. The rear shock was junk, and combined with the single pivot, must have made the bike pedal worse than bad. Definitely not what I would consider a "nice" bike.
    Worked at Trek/Fisher dealer 2008-2013. Only a little biased.
