    i've ridden my bighit for about a year and a half and i have had no problems with it. its a rock solid frame and it won't break. my only complaint would be the 24" rear whee which helps in some situations and sucks in others.

    I got similar set up to one that you're looking at. Sick and mean freeride machine. 12ft to barely any transition.



    I never had any problems with it. Just the drop crown hitting the frame, but tire rubber solves the problem. I do feel that bike's weight slows me down on the pure dh runs, but still managable and plenty of fun.

    Big Hits are still great bikes even though the Demo 8s and Demo 9s steal all of the spotlight. They work great on DH and rail hard in corners. That Monster T sounds heavy but I'm sure it'll take the beats on the way down and beg you for more at the bottom.

    ya the monster T is my only worry, although its a huge fork and from what i hear can take everything, i know its fairly heavy. i would possibly upgrade to an 888rc or shiver dc in time
