just picked up my 2010 specialized bighit 2 :) got it for $1600 from the lbs

https://***************/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/specialized-bighit-fsr-ii-2-2010-mountain-bike.jpg

cant wait to test it at diablo!

however... i have lots of questions.. do i have to get suspension adjusted to my weight or is it just ride it? its also a size small (5'6 and 190 pounds) is a 400lb rear coil good enough since im kinda heavier then most my height. thanx in advance for the advice!

You'll probably need a heavier rear spring.

Basically you should aim for app 30% sag give or take. This puts you roughly between 450 and 500lb springs...

I'd go back to LBS and see if they can help you with the right springs, you may be ok with the stock spring in the fork.

Have fun at diablo!
