Ha....I was shuttling today in some Forest land and there was a family with like 3 or 4 kids up there all on pimp 50s. The oldest may have been like 12, and the youngest was like 4. Rich people...zedro said:wish i had an ATV to sell at 15....lol
dude...thats light. Competiton DH race bikes are 38-40, most DH/FR bikes are in the 45 range.oreo321321 said:... around 35 to 40 is what I'm looking for. I found another bike, that seems to be a good price, a karpiel disco valante, its looks sweet, how bout that bike for $1000 US? (complete)
my stock bighit comp weighed in at around 43 pounds. i threw on an MRP, super T, and some decent tires with double casings (High Rollers) and it weighs around 45 pounds now. you can definitely make a bighit a sub-40 pounder, but it would take a good chunk of $$$....oreo321321 said:how heavy are most big hits? are they pretty light?
hey you could always get a BigHit Grom. I bet that thing is real light. A real POS, but what the hell? Its cheap, "Light", and besideds you sound set on a BigHit. haha. Im 16 and ride hardtails. Get one. Just built a Craftworks rail with Shiver SCs for my bud. A sweet hadtail.oreo321321 said:how heavy are most big hits? are they pretty light?
Look into the Cove Stiffie form JensonUsa.com. For about 500 you can have a nice alum. hardtail that can really take a beating!madmax said:ya,id say get a nice hardtail.chances are that you won't be able to find a light dh bike that cheap and a hartail will meake you a smoother rider.What size stuff do you do?Do you fr or dh mostly?
Turners are lighter race bikes, probably around 10.5 or 11 lbs for the frame, but they're way past your budget. If you're just doing four- and five-foot drops, you really don't need an 8 or 9" travel frame--you need good riding technique, which you will learn from a hardtail. Other than the fact that they're not squishy on flat landings, what don't you like about hardtails?oreo321321 said:Well back to the original topic, does anyone know the acual weights on those bikes? Like the turners and stuff?
