    2006 Bighits

    Anybody know any details on these, ie price, specs? I know there are three models, two 7.5" ones and one 8". Anything else?

    I've seen pics of two new BigHit models. It seems like there's going to be a BigHit 1, 2, and 3. There's a picture of the BigHit 1 (cheapest model) posted that is high enough quality to see what sort of components it will have. The other pic of the new BigHit doesn't clearly say 2 or 3 but the spec is definitely higher. Here's what I can tell from the pics...

    BigHit 1:
    - Marzocchi Drop Off SL fork (20mm bolt through QR?)
    - Fox Vanilla R rear shock (or some other brand of reservoir-less coilover)
    - SRAM X.7 rear mech
    - Truvativ Blaze(?) cranks with single ring and Truvativ box guide
    - Hayes 8" discs
    - Sun Singletrack rims
    - Bunch of generic stuff, seatpost, riser bar and stem can't be confirmed as to brand, and lock-on grips.




    BigHit 3:
    - Marzocchi 888VF w/integrated stem
    - Fox DHX 3 or 4 rear shock
    - SRAM X.9 rear mech
    - Truvativ Hussefelt cranks with single ring and Blackspire NS1 guide
    - Avid Juicy 5 brakes
    - Not sure what sort of rims
    - Telescoping seatpost and lock-on grips

    [SIZE=1]EXTREEM MEDIUM MOUNTAINSTYLE SLOPCROSS STEEDS:
    '06 Iron Horse 7Point3 w/888RC + Roco
    '05 Specialized Rockhopper Pro Disc FR-Pimped
    '92 Specialized HardRock Pink-Retro-XC-Pimped[/SIZE]

    idk but i think there is a 2-10% increase on bikes and even almost 100 on other stuff. that is what i think so the cheap bighit would be around... i'd say 2100-2200.
