    Here's that old (00-01) Bullit frame I picked up a while back.. I really want to build it up but simply haven't had the finances (and ended up picking up a complete bike as well).

    I'm highly tempted to sell it to someone in the community just so I can see it completed and ridden. A very solid design that would surely still be a blast to ride... and made in the good 'ol USA.

    That'd be sweet! An old-school frame decked out in the latest components.

    I've been offered a 2001 specialized bighit w/ marzzochi bomber junior t's... could people hazard a guess at it's worth for me? its in good nick, could do with a couple of new break calipers but other than that virtually nothing wrong with it.

    it would be massively appreciated

    Maybe $300 depending on the rest of the build? I just bought a bike with a Monster T, DHX, parts, etc., for $300. Not in great shape, but a little elbow grease and it should be a competitor.

    The fork is terr-eeblay and the frame is really pretty outdated. 24" rear wheels are nothing but a novelty nowadays.

    Magura
    from somebody who spent 2 years riding dual 24s, 24/26, and 26s, and now rides 29ers, 650bs, and 26s...stick with 26 for DH, especially on a budget.

    24s lower the COG and make for a fun little bike, but we're talking about DH here, and availability of tires, and rolling resistance, and...

    but if the bighit is solid and you just need a bike, go for it.

    Not to rain on the parade here but imo a bike has to be at least 10 years old to be considered vintage and even that is pushing it.
    No it never stops hurting, but if you keep at it you can go faster.

    I had a diamondback moto xts. it was the first dh bike i built. it had a jr t fork that i changed out the top spring. that made a world of difference, it had a swinger 6way shock out back. I kick myself for selling it all the time. Wish i could find a pic of it. If i could find another 19 frame id pick it up in a heart beat!

    I used and abused my MSC F-1.0 untill last year.

    (due to the post counter I wasn't able to post the image)

    Had a lot of fun with this guy and this year I borrowed it to a girlfriend, when actually everything went broke, so the bike is back at my home, waiting untill I have a concept (and the money lol) finished for repainting it and bringing it back to the roots .
    Ow yeah I had an inversed fork mounted on it, wich is a Magura Big Ego, a 180 mm beast at the time.
    Now the fork is broke and I can't find any replacement parts. Darn

    cheers

    I just picked up a Diamondback strike with another frame I bought. It's not the XTS, but if you have any interest I'd sell it really cheap.

    I think I'm thinking the old Cannondale Fulcrum actually. Either way, absolutely beautiful.

    haha lol, Yeah it was a mean bike at the time, now the fork is getting way to used poorly enough and decided that it might have a good old retirement or a total new setup and custom paint.

    Ow yes I forgot to tell that the rear wheelaxle was a 165mm, wich is a very rare measurment for a DH.

    I've got to share my newest edition! I can't quite dial in what year it is, but my best guess would be an '02 or '03 being it has different swingarm cross bracing than my '01. It almost looks like the Decepticon symbol! Suspended with an '04 Monster T and newer Fox DHX coil, Sram XO Blackbox and Code 5 brakes with T.H.E. wheels and Brake Therapy Floating rear brake kit with misc Thompson/Raceface parts.

    The fork needs a rebuild, but everything is else works as its supposed to. If anyone has info on where I can score a rebuild kit for an old Monster, it would be appreciated.

    Scored the bike for $800 which I kinda feel like is a little much, but I'm content with the deal.



    My brother just picked up a RM7 too, hopefully he'll post some pics of it.
