    2008 Kona Stinky Sizing

    Hey guys, I'm new to DH/ FR riding and want to get into it. I found a 15.5 inch kona stinky I'm interested in checking out but im afraid it might be too small. Im 5-10 about 130 lbs. I've read bikes like these are generally preference based in terms of sizing, but I would just like some input. I ride a 17.5 XC bike, but I've also read that DH bikes run a bit smaller than XC bikes.
    thanks for any help i receive

    that year stinky were 15", 15.5", 16", 16.5", 17" (if I remember correctly)

    16 or 16.5 inch is what you want.....but you are really skinny..so being that skinny I think you will be fine a few years till your body starts to fill out


    ..if you are getting a good deal on it then go for it....you can always pick up the 16 frame used for 350 +/- 100 and sell your for same price
    the trick is ENJOYING YOUR LIFE EACH DAY, don't waste them away wishing for better days
