    Post your Big Hit

    Post your Big Hit:

    Here is mine:
    Built up the bike and rebuilt the fork...
    The Avy in the back feels soooo nice compared to the Vanilla R on the 6 inch Big Hit. You just sit on the bike and it just sinks in. The wheels seem to stay glued to the ground and it is such a smooth shock compared to the 6". Anyway so far the bike is great and I plan on doing some DH this weekend on it up at Attitash so if you are plannning on going send me a P/M. I took some pictures too:








    [spam]By the way the old white frame is forsale too...[/spam]
    Thanks.

    Sick bikes guys. There are a lot of nice Big Hits here.

    Yeah the pedals are pretty grippy and they are big too so they have a good platform for my big feet.

    Thanks for the compliments on my new bike too!

    Dont think so. i recently got it working properly again and have re-fallin in love with it but i still would like a lighter front end..deff keeping the fork though...buying a newer bighit frame...8 inch travel via a DHX and a 7 inch 66rc in front. saint everything, same 2 ring setup i have now. hadley hubs, might get hayes el camino's, might settle for juicy 7's. I want new single track rims but might settle for MTX's and use my current rim set as back up...i was thinking of buying a used bighit and just strippin it for the frame and sellin extra parts. not a bad idea as they are going for dirt cheap right now...slight possibility ill get a demo 9 if i find a good deal...friend just got a complete D9 for $2400 off this site, so there's alot of possibility.

    I don't know for sure . . .

    I had some questions about which way, but from the manual it looks to be correct . . . I remember a thread about Spec shipping/building them wrong and selling them that way and I did a search, but couldn't find it?

    I think Red5 posted up the page from the manual in that old thread, and dang if I can't find it, do you know the real answer?

    Bought a SPEC cause it was cheap, started getting brave, caught the bug, outgrew equipment, went gnar, frame replacement last step. The head angle is pretty slack, but it's SWEET ripping down Bootleg Canyon, just DON'T GO SLOW. I call it "THE FLYING PIG"

    who has a mr dirt gizmo on their bighit with 24 and 26" wheels? I've got a question for them.

    Here's mine - before I replaced the rear wheel with an Intense Mag 30. Hell yeah!

    I hope dude who sold it to me doesn't mind that I lifted his pics.

    your shock should be flipped so the resi faces the rear wheel, or else you may run into trouble.
    I will post mine once it's painted

    Thanks!

    Since I'm in the company of such excellent Big Hit riders - can anybody confirm whether or not the E-13 SRS chainguide fits on the '03+ Big Hit DH frames?

    I have another chain guide but it isn't the best fit and the high-friction roller mechanism loses its appeal as the roundness of the bashguard progressively deteriorates.

    Dave.

    Not exactly sure what you mean by running into trouble. I haven't had any problems so far. What do you think could be bad about this setup. If anything it's set according to instructions from specialized.

    Let me know if you had andy experiances or know something I don't.

    I think he's confused.

    On the newer BH's with swingers, the resi is longer and running it like that in some config's can cause issues. However with the RC it's not a prob, I've been running mine like this for years and no issues.

    BTW nice bike, although I think your monster is setup wrong. Is your bottom crown above the line? If so I would suggest moving it down so that it's even, otherwise your putting undo stress on the thinner part of the stanctions.

    I took a closer look at the bike but I am not sure which line your talking about.
    To me everything seems to be good, but let me know if you see anything out of the ordinary.

    On the Monster's stanction there is a small ridge. If you follow the stanction up from the seals, approx 190mm up, you'll notice it. At that point the stanctions dip in and get thinner till it reachs the upper section that is also raised. Basically both crowns shuld be in those areas and not on the thinner sections. The lower crown should sit just below the line.

    Heres a little illustration to hopefully help you understand.

    You used too until the Demo replaced it as the premiere bike to have, now they are complete builds only. Want a frame only, try Ebay.

    New to me at least.....

    2001 with biglink....
    05 junior-t
    rear juicy 9
    arrow dhx rear
    321 front
    swinger 4 way


    All in all i'm absolutely in love with the 24 inch rear wheel. I've heard a lot of things over time about it being bad and both good. But i have got to say I can climb like a mountain goat on this thing despite weight.

    Defintiely 24 inches of love....


    Peace,

    Taylor, i don't know yet. I haven't got any soild offers yet and i have put to much in it to just let it go, so i may just put it back to more of a freeride rig vs pure DH. If I buy something else I will have you hook me up though!!!

    I love that white bighit, looks really good even if there's some fashion faux pas like mismatched rims and warning stickers on the fork.

    I had my big bike purchase narrowed to two bikes, the Iron Horse 7Point3 and the BigHit2 (though I like the BigHit3's white better) and ended up with the Iron Horse because I got a bargain on it for the same price as the BigHit3 but with a 66RC2X.



    Looks dope.
