Is there a huge difference in the 07 bighit 1 and 2?

i'm thinking about buying either an 07 bighit 1 or 2 near christmas and was wondering if the extra couple hundred $ was worth the difference between the 2 bikes because the bighit 2 has the marzocchi 888's and fox dhx 4.0 and the 1 has rockshox domain and fox van

I think it really comes down to how much travel you want. The 3 has more travel up front and in back. The 3 also has a dual crown fork. The 3 has Juicy 5, as opposed to Juicy 3s on the 2. The Juicy 2s are OEM only, the only realy difference between them and the 5s are that the 2s don't have a split clamp design.

So it really comes down to what kind of riding you are gonna do. More DH, I would say the 3. More freeride I would prob go with the 2.
