    Scott Gambler vs Specialized Big Hit vs Kona Stinky

    I am currently looking to purchase either a 09 Scott Gambler DH 20, an 08 Specialized BigHit 1, or an 07 Kona Stinky for all around the same price used. Which bike is worth purchasing for downhill riding?

    Wouldn't bother with the kona. They have a habit of snapping so rumours have it. But the other two are pretty decent bikes. Would love a Scott gambler myself.

    All old DH bikes tend to be full of plays and damages, so I would buy the one less hard ridden and/or well maintained. If that Kona belonged to an old lady that rode it only to buy groceries in the neighborhood and bring them back in a basket fixed on the handlebars - thatīs the one I would buy.

    I always felt the Big Hit was just as good as the Demo...don't understand why it didn't get as much fanfare.....FSR suspension is great

    anyway on suspension alone I would get the big Hit....glorified single pivot konas and scotts don't do it for me
    the trick is ENJOYING YOUR LIFE EACH DAY, don't waste them away wishing for better days

    Neither are in perfect condition. I am mostly looking at the Scott and Specialized now.
