    kona stinky air '09

    I can pick up a new '09 stinky air from a local shop for $1750. Would I be dumb to not jump on this deal?
    I'm new to DH and this would be my first DH/Freeride bike to be used for lift accessed parks in the north east. Im not hitting any huge gaps or drops yet, but I want something durable that I can learn on.

    I'd switch out the Marzocci ATA (everyone has issues with it according to mtbr reviews) for a 180mm '10 Marzocci 66 RC3 Ti.

    From my searching, I havent seen many people with a 09 stinky air? Should I be cautious or go for it?

    I really appreciate any input, opinions and personal experiences.

    FOR an almost 3 year old bike would ask for a little more discount

    Your grounds for asking more:
    the fork ....

    try to get 1650 or 1700 with tax included
    the trick is ENJOYING YOUR LIFE EACH DAY, don't waste them away wishing for better days

    I hate to admit it, but i secretly love the look of the 09 stinkys, That said I've never ridden one and they might not ride as well as they look... But they could ride great too. For your first bike it will be awesome!
