Strengths: Suspension is fantastic, brakes are perfect, bars, and indestructible
Weaknesses: Bit to heavy, almost impossible to ride up the slightest hills, and the gears can be a pain
I've found this bike a great bike to ride and even race on, it does downhill brilliantly and is good at pretty much all components of it. Despite its weight it can be thrown around really well, I believe it's a great bike for a rider of any skill level, I never had $4000 to spend on a downhill bike and the big hit 1 was perfect for me. I don't have any thoughts of changing bikes anytime soon. Sometimes the gears shutter which can be frustrating but that's an easy fix. For the stunning value the big hit exceeded all expectaitions I had of it, I love this bike and will continue to race downhill on it.Overall Rating:

Strengths: Really strong and agile, looks good, very progressive travel, good stand over height, all round bike for freeride and downhill racing, nice looking bike
Weaknesses: Original parts were shocking-Forks, shock, bars, brakes, stem, wheels, saddle, cranks, pedals, chain device and tyres had to go straight away and its heavy as well
Couldnt find a better beginner to intermediate bike anywhere at all, its an amazing bike, after 2 years of Dh and Fr on it im still using it and not planning to changing till end of 2012. It is a really nice adaptable bike as you can put boxxers etc on and make it a very UK friendly dh bike, Even though the stock components are crap they are easy to upgrade and i have nothing original on mine left.
Even Brendog has used his in Whistler and Morzine!!
Brilliant bike, would recommend to anyone giving dh a go or fr or just anyone whos an intermediate but maybe go for a higher model and get the better spec and buy second hand as there is loads and theyre cheap.

Strengths: Frame, The rear shock. Good value for the Price. Looks nice. It's a toy.
Weaknesses: the worse is probably the brakes. How did they think at specialized ? I understand that they wanted to have bike under 2000 USD but those brakes will kill you on a DH track. You can't stop the bike. V-brakes are way much better. The pedals are as well not that good.
