    Big Hit Sizing Question

    Hey all. I am purchasing my first full suspension ride - a Almost-New '05 Big Hit and was wondering about if the size will fit me. I am 6'0" about 175, and the bike (Which is a killer deal) is a large. Is this going to be too big? Thanks.

    Large is about right for your height. Cockpit is fairly compact on the BigHit and the chainstay configuration will still bias you over the rear wheel well. It'll be a fun bike - -enjoy.

    Large might be tall. I find bighits taller than average. I had a large and at times felt it to be bigish. I am 6'5 with long legs This size issue came up for me when I used it on dh trails.

    But, if you were using it for all round riding, than it would be fine.
