Im just getting into DH biking but I still want to do alot of jumping, hucking, and strait drops. My entire city i live in carries a total of 2 Bikes im interested in... A 03' giant DH comp with boxxer fork, a specialized BIg hit with marzzochi dirt jumper 2. Ive been told the giant is more of a strictly DH bike with little jumping abilities, and the Specialized is an awesome Jumper with very good DH capabilities, and with few upgrades can be made into a full out DH bike. I could also wait and get a 05' big hit with the upgraded fork Manitou kingpin and the Rear fox vanilla R. Im personally leaning towards the 04' bighit wich i can get at a very good price and just upgrading the Fork later. Also this is one of manitous first Dh forks theyve put out so im a little weary of its capabilites..... im looking to get one soon, and just wanted some opinions on thses rides.
