Get the romic if your tight on money. Ive rode a couple of them and there great no problems ever. No experiance with the avy but i think there pretty expensive.

contact Romic directly to find out if they make a shock to fit your model of BIGHIT...

i'd get teh Romic aswell...



as of right now the Manitou shocks arent available aftermarket...so u cant buy one...unless your buying a frameset/complete bike...

im 15 too, and im not rich. but you cant go wrong with the 2 shocks you listed

and im pretty sure the swinger/5th element wont fit the big hit comp cuz theres not enough clearence for the piggyback, but it does work with the big hit dh.

avy is a little bit exspensive for me though. I am already in dept 900 bucks from all the stuff i put on. blowing my fox r was not part of the plan.

the romic will probibly fit it will mabey change up the geometry a little. Unless the link has a stop where itcant go any farther it will work having a little biger of a shock. Go to the norco website it tell how to get more travel out of a vps and thats just puting on a biger shock pretty much. They run the same design it should work. Talk to your LBS also they will help you out or call a good shop like cove or jhon hennrys.
