    coming back to fr/dh...need to get me a ride...

    hi guys...
    after a few years out..i wanna come back to this sport....
    been looking for a nice bike to start with...
    i came across this 2 bikes...

    specialized big hit 1 2008- the white ones
    all in all looking good,,some scratches here and there...almost stock (replaced the front rim to azonic and the brakes), original fork 150mm.
    around 2500 shekels = 650-700$

    mongoose black diamond triple 2006 - the blue ones
    all stock, looking very very good...the guy didnt touch them for a few years..DHX 4 , rock shox boxxer RIDE 133-178mm.
    around 3500 shekels = 850-900$

    keep in mind im a good rider...used to be but didnt touch a bike for 3-4 years...
    gonna do free ride,,,and urban fr/dh... and on the weekends gonna head to the mountains and hit some trials .
    wanna go deeper into downhill..so i guess later on i will replace the fork and the shock so the bikes got to be upgradable .

    would love to hear your thoughts and advices...

    thanks for all the help...

    I'd go w the big hit bc it's cheaper, and you could use the money you save for upgrades/maintenence.

    Honestly I would save a little more money and get something a little newer. Look at the classifieds on pinkbike.. Lots of good deals to be had.
