I got a dilema here... I'm looking at the 2003 Specialized BigHit Expert ($2700) and the 2003 Kona Stinky-Delux ($2600). They share nearly the same level of components! I am planning to test ride both, but I need some opinions. I weigh around 130 and plan to pull drops up to 10 feet with which ever bike I decide to buy. I'll be doing mostly freeriding and possibly do a little downhill racing for a sponser(s). In opinion which is stronger, lighter, more efficient, a better deal, and better for a person like me. Thanks.
Here's specs for,
