    Bighits Trail Friendly?

    Hey all,

    Looking at possibly getting an 07/08 Bighit fsr 1. Curious to find out how peddle friendly on the trails they are?

    I would have searched but apparently the search function is down today.

    As in XC trail friendly? It would be a pretty sluggish ride. Could you do it? Well, yeah. It most likely wont be a fast ride. It could be overkill for alot of trails. If your wanting a beefier bike than a XC rig, go for an Enduro. You can ride trails and do more all mountain type riding.
    Livin' the dream.

    I ride my '06 bighit up everything I want to ride down. While I'd never keep up with the XC crowd on the climbs, I'm more than happy with it's peddle-ability. The drivetrain shifts super crisp, and I'll take it to ride XC trails instead of my hardtail now and then, just because it's more fun.

    I had an 05 and an 07 Big Hit, for what they are, they pedal great, and have done numerous 20+ mile XC style rides with it just because it was fun, and the bike can do it, i have no problems keeping up with the "beginners ride" on the trails, but i always grab my stumpy for the faster rides. I would never even consider doing it on my demo, but the Big Hit is a great fun bike......but now i replaced it with an SX Trail, it goes everywhere i would ever want it to go.

    Not to be a grammar d!ck, but pedal = to spin the cranks, peddle = to sell something.

    Jut8 why do you prefer the big hit for xc styled rides and not the demo?

    The demo really doesent pedal uphill well not matter what you try. The big hit actually pedals pretty well.
