I have been in the market for a new bike, or at least I am dreaming to be in the market. I was originally set on the Haro Extreme X3 2005 model http://www.harobikes.com/2005/mtb/extreme-x3.php# but now that I have been looking around, and I have visited one of the many LBS, I found that the 2005 Big Hit is really sweet, and when I rode it I liked it. I still haven't been able to ride the 2005 x3.
The Big Hit looks like it is a better made bike and it is only about 300 bucks more. Here is the link for that:
I think one of the main differences is single to double crown suspension, althought they are both monitou. And from there the biggest difference that I can see is just design.
What do you think?
