    hmmm, actually an '03 expert, with 888, runnin on dual 24s. Best bike I've ever ridden, rides like a dream, especially after I ditched the Jr.T. which I hated with a passion. 888 as worked flawlessly since I got it about a month ago...damn I love that fork made the bike ride completely different.

    If you didnt have the dual 24 ( only the rear) then it would probably be to tall.
    Yes, the junior T sucks. I was going to buy one a while ago, then the stanchion broke and stuff ( I have a thread on this) and the junior sucked for downhilling, i really only do jumps, drops, and the street stuff so i dont really need hsvc.
    I would love an 888r tho!

    hmmm, I actually know a guy that runs a 888 w/ a 26 inch wheel on the BH, I rode it around on dirt and such, I thought it felt really good not to tall at all...its just like everything else that you change you just need to get use to it... I see no need to pay $300 more bucks for the lowrider crowns...I think you just need to ride it enough to get used to it or buy the 7" inch version.

    Yea, i wouldent buy lowrider crowns, but some people dont like their bikes "chopper like"
    but i sure do. I guess it wouldent be too tall just riding around, but when you push the rear down??...Im not trying to start an argument or anything.

    Cool

    Looks like some cool shi* ...Im thinking of purchaseing an 05' Big Hit.....but most likely just run the 26 up front.
    People call me a dick, but I just think im clever.

    hey man, I know your not starting an argument, I've just ridden both set-ups and like how the fork works...its all opinion
    Yeah the BH rocks, I rode it for year with 26" up front, I like it more with the dual 24s, I'm a smaller guy, and the 24 just feels awesome with this bike, and set-up. I still race on it and do alright, and for tech you can;t beat it, plus it is tough as nails...but then so is a properly built 26" wheel...I would suggest that if you ever decide to change that you try it before you do it.

    how wide was that bridge wall/ledge thing? I would freak out and fall onto the highway and die.

    yeah the quality like I said sucks balls!!! It was captured from video, so that was the best I could get it...The ledge is as wide as a highway barrier thingy, then when it hits the sound barrier it is maybe two inches wider, so roughly six inches at the most...then it narrows up to just the sound barrier, but I didn't go further b/c I didn;t want to die by gettin nailed by a car!!!

    the 7" version of the 888s is like 10-8mm shorter than the 8" version...i seriously doubt it would make that much of a difference...

    and if you want to eventually snap your headtube from your bike or bend ur fork then run dual 24"s on ur big hits...if not then swap ur front wheel...

    but they look liek some nice stairs...good luck with ur vid...

    Bummer part about that, is shortly after where I am in the pic, gets to be a further drop on the the otherside, it is actually a on ramp, so the other side gets close to the same as this side in a number of feet, tomorrow I am going to do it again so I can get another angle from the others side, It think it will look better. b/c it is higher a little further down...pretty sketchy no matter what you do, if I would have fallen it would have been pain...thanks for the props, I see you guys postin pics of way bigger stuff than what I am doin!!!!

    7" version of 888r is 30 mm shorter than 8" (575 vs. 605 mm a-c), at least on the 04's
