Hey folks,

I'm on the lookout for my first freeride specific bike after completely destroying my old Kona Coiler. As my confidence grew I was trying more and more extreme stuff - bigger drops, bigger tree routes, bigger rocks etc and as expected it was too much for the little Coiler.


Anyway, Ideally I don't want to spend more than £1500 and really want a bike that will happily take the big knocks and drops. I'm not going to be using it for anything other than riding the tough stuff so I won't really be ever cycling up hill or XC with it.

I've looked at the Big Hit which seems pretty good for the money but just wondered if anyone else could give me some suggestions.

Many thanks.
Think first.
Then act.
That\'s it.
