I'd go with a devinci wilson. They have a full carbon version for 2013 and it's a really good design.

I'm selling my baby to get a team bike this year and I really just need it gone. It's a 2011 Specialized Big Hit 1 size small that I bought in the late season of 2011. I'm 5' 8" and it feels great. I've taken it to the mountains 5 times and other than ... more »

Pretty Good


The Good: Tuff, strong, pretty light for the price, and fairly plush.

The Bad: Brakes fade and the stock suspension isn't very good.


I've had this bike for about a year now and it's held up well from all the torture I've given it. I had to replace the fork because it started creaking and so I went for a boxxer and it's much better. I also had to replace the rear shock because I blew through the bottom out bumper. I replaced it with a fox van rc and it feels much more plush. The brakes are strong but kind of spongy and fade everyone once in a while but for the price it's really good. Also, I find my self wishing for a slightly slacker head angle when things get steep and rough but it works fine how it is. Overall it's a great bike for the price and I would recommend it.
