Professional Tweaks, Tips & Reviews By "AJ" Picarello
I hope you find my Tweaks and Tips section helpful. If there is something you want to know about, send me an email and I will try to add that to one of my upcoming articles.

Brooklyn Machine Works (BMW) has announced the creation of the Hitman.

The Hitman

The Hitman is a replacement of the old Big Link from 2000. It gets 10" of travel!!! 88| like its older cousin. The Hitman was conceived originally in the fall of 2002 when Avalanche announced they were going to make a 10.5" x 3.5" stroke DHS. Since the RaceLink has performed so well the Hitman concept was put on the backburner for a few years. It will be in testing throughout 2005, I can't wait for 2006 ^:!!!.
Downcycles will keep you posted on any news over the year about the Hitman!

Read the Tech Tip: "The Bike of the Lord." The new Hit Man should be a bit lighter. BMW had Avalanche build them custom 3.5" stroke DHS rear shocks. The original Hit Man rear shock alone was 5lbs!

Sad Fact: I never had a chance to ride my Hit Man at Diablo (Originally Mountain Creek). The year I got the bike, found out Mountain Creek was closing. I owned the bike for the two years Creek was closed!

Wish I had a chance to ride the BMW trail on a BMW. Hasn't happened yet, even after owning 3 of their frames.
