I've done alot of research and shopping around and it has come down to a 2006 BigHit fsr1
or a 2006 7 point 3. I'm pretty torn right now and plan on purchasing one very soon so any advice that could possibly sway me would be much appreciated.

Bighit. Rear end seems to be really soft and progressive. Every DW-Link I've ridden feels like a friggin hardtail over bumps and hits. My experience has led me to believe that anything Ironhorse makes is made of poo and welded with toothpaste for a very neutral odor.

hab1b, I'm 6'2" what size big hit would you recommend. I hate being cramped and have no trouble throwing around larger bikes.
I am little over 6 foot and rode a large

6'2 huh well one of my friends i ride with is 6'3 and rides mediums but he likes to be able to throw the bike around like nobodys business. i am 5'5 and i ride a small. if you can ride the bike and dont mind i would get a large if i was you, i am on your side i hate being crammed on a bike. of course being that i am so short i never have the problem. goto come local shops and sit on some bikes. you can never do too much research when buying a bike.

Probably because they had platform shocks. They feel much better with less of a platform.

Or maybe I just like bikes that feel like hardtails. :p
