    Hey

    I havent had much experience with DHZ,

    If you choose to go PitPro get a Xr 150 not a 140 because the power different is so much more, the 150has way better throttle response.

    Cheers Jono

    Personally i would take the big foot, the handling owns but yes everybody will say they arent a mini well either is a 14/12 if you want a real mini you go to a 10/10" bike...I find that the big foot is a lot easier to jump and a lot more stable over jumps it balances very well...

    Depends 10/10's are not that good at sandy tracks, there better for harder packed dirt. If you are going to be riding in sandy or softer tracks i recomend a bigger bike. In soft stuff its harder to push through it with a 10/10, because of the smaller diameter of the wheel it just spins.

    actually 10/10s are not go for any trails or soft sand but more for fun in paddocks or tracks or jumps but 14/12 are a little bit more of a alrounder although still not great for jumps as 10/10 and 17/14 beat it in that...

    I rode a the new braaap 10" 88 in soft pack sand and it was awesome it had no problem not sure if that was because of the millvills or what, but you are right they can get tricky and they are very hard on trail i couldnt even do the fire trials i do on a 10" i struggle with a 14/12" bike thats why i own a big foot and also a 10"

    i find 10 inchers hard to ride in soft stuff.. but yeh we are all different.

    I reckon 17/14 is retarded i simply cant ride them lol

    But yeh lets say u go with DHZ the after sales service is nearly unbeatable.
    you wont be dissapointed

    Yeah all depend on power and a good set of tyres.

    If you have heaps of power and good tyres i guess sand riding would be easier.

    yeah but you would have more chance of pulling through it, than if you had bald tyres and not much power.

    Yeah that would be interesting, it would also depend on the riders weight, the more they weigh the bigger the hole in the ground. haha :p
