    i don't have any time on a blitz but i really love the session. the bike is really over built and pedals quite well. i changed the fork to an 05 66 vf with 170mm of travel. and have changed a few other components and added a blackspire stinger guide.

    non FSR 4bar rear isn't good unless you run a floating brake......if you are using it to freeride then that is all right ....if you are trying to get down a mountain fast then I wouldn't buy it

    Blitz: Quality #1 - Design #2 -Indepent Frame CO #3

    I personally picked a 06 Blitz for my freeride/all mountain bike. I have already pedalled this rig up over 5,000 vert within a few days and I can tell you: You will be stoked on the Blitz. Multiple downhill runs and every one I get quicker. Confidence inspiring. The Trek does not come close in rear stiffness. Therefore, it corners better. It rails. Balance point very nice for manuals, seated manuals and wheelies. Needle bearings w/ External grease ports - top quality - easy service - . Custom Cnc'd junction. This is a freeride bike...and this is a race bike. Perfect choice for pedally downhill courses and Super D. Customer support has been great, you won't be put on hold, like with Trek. As for frame design and the floating brake comment. They use a very similiar design, only slight variances. Neither is a FSR, but that really doesn't matter. It performs and pins. Lay off the brakes buddy, if you think a floater is nessacary on a 170mm travel bike. Tonight, I ride at night. It's on.

    kind of seems like you want the session....which is fine. after thinking about it more i would just get whichever is cheaper. they seem very similar with geo and how they are usually built up.

    i checked out the session 77 at the local shop the other day.

    They do most things "right", but they also screwed up something important.

    Most of the pivots are huge, making lateral flex a non issue, but the top shock bolt is very long, and just the regular size. This means that you can bend shock bolts due to how long they are (leverage) and it's pretty sad that with everything else, they didn't address this. There's a reason that the linkage plates on my turner are angled to allow for the shortest bolt as possible, and that's to prevent the bolts from bending, and wearing out the bushing and the shock mounts on the bike.

    Oh well...

    One More tick for the Versus

    I have the old Blitz with a 150mm travel 66RC and couldn't love it more. If I want to ride twenty miles on the street I put some hookworms on and go. If I want to go downhill I put some Kenda's or Maxxis on and I go. It does everything except skateparks.

    Trek Session 77 is sick. I own it and its very sexy.

    I am selling it however. But not to get another bike, I'm getting out of the sport (not cause of any bad experiance w/ the Trek). So if you are at all interested, PM me or whatever, I'll let it go for a decent price. All it has is PRAIRIE miles.

    Sorry for the sales pitch sounding post.

    Thanks,
    Cam

    Both are more o less same thing. I only can say that riding a trek sucks! just beacuse trek sucks! support a small company that helps the freeride world to grow up! get the Versus! Also with small companies you get better customer service.

    TREK SUCKS! HA! You guys are right, both of these bikes are sick, especially the monsterous pivots on the blitz, monsterous like a chinamen's penis. That picture of the Trek, yea, that badass looking one, is my bike. That is after being ridden, raced, stunted, and sent after 1 full year of summer and winter riding, in whistler, norcal, and northstar. And why am I selling it, for a session 10 of course. Lifetime warantee on the Trek, made in the USA. Support Versus?!, I know people on their full team who quit after a few months with them. Customer service is better at a small company? Are you serios, a made in china in a small ass new company is better than Trek? ****, the session will never break, and if it does, you get a new one within about a week. Props.

    If you can ride a small, get a closeout 2005 Session 77. The build kit is great and the price is right. I run the build kit off a 2005 Session 77 (but not the frame - the Session was nice, but my Sinister is better) and I love it. The Bontrager wheels are very nice - I've pounded on them and they have no wobbles, warps, looses spokes, nothing.

    The Blitz I has weak pivots and lots of lateral flex in the rear end. I USED to have one. Get the Trek or maybe a Transition Dirtbag.

    good choice

    when i started reading this thread i was thinking why hadn't you looked at Kona, but you did and made a great choice. it's a lot like the Trek but i'd rather pay Kona than Trek

    dude, azonic rider, you will be mad stoked. I am glad that picture 'stuck,' I had a deadline to reach to sell that Session to get the 10. So I took some pink bike wash and my digital camera and used my 2 years photo experience to frame that photo.

    Hey Cmac whats that session 7 weigh in at? Did you ever take it out to trail ride? If so, how did it feel? I know it's built to bomb, but was wondering how it felt to trail ride too.

    Thanks.
