    Stinky or DirtBag?

    Does anybody know the weight diff between a stock Stinky and a Dirtbag?

    I am looking at getting a big bike and do have one good offer for a good price on a stinky
    with a better fork. Also wanting to know about the bottom bracket heights, I'm sure
    they are HIGHER on those bikes rather than lower, like on some DH bikes?

    I just want to know which one smells worse.

    I mean, Jesus H., who is in charge of naming these friggin' bikes? Toiletsnake? What's next? The Kona "Dirty Sanchez? " How about the Kona "Cleveland Steamer?" Or, for simplicity's sake, why don't they name one the Kona "Dirt Star"? Or the Kona "Big Pile of Steaming Monkey Cr@p?"

    Discuss the name of 98's next Kona bike. This one is made for the unique talents of Twisted, toiletsnake, or Visicypher.

    98, on topic, did you post this on the Kona board? You might get less sarcastic responses.

    If Kona puts out a CX bike called the "Arkansas Mudslide", I'm snatching that mofo up.

    And FWIW....

    Their Demo Tour makes a stop in Ketchum on May 27th - 28th. You should see if they will have any of those bikes you are looking at.

    Hey 98...

    I bet you'd have fun riding the Kona Satanic Cornhole. God told me so.

    To provide you with some useful info........unlike the others..........the frame weights are similar, probably within a 1/2 pound. I'm telling you Daryl, come check out my Dirtbag. Its a better bike than the stinky and much more controllable. Not too mention, you will be backed by one of the best companies in the biz. I hung out with and rode with those dudes all last week and they are top notch people. The Dirtbag is the best handling big bike I have ever owned.

    so when you say you "owned" your dirtbag.... did you hit it in the headtube or the seat tube? just FYI I like the head tube the most.

    also I would love to try some dirtbag myself one day, if you feel like passing her around

    Lot's of useLESS infomration floating around here, and childish remarks such as from so called holyrider 777, or is that holyrider 666 more like?

    Anyway, will have to talk to you more about it on Sunday. It IS about $800 more than the Stinky with a 66, but I have not compared components. We'll see.......

    Glad you're loving yours though!

    It owned me up at Vetter. I got the conveyor belt treatment between the seat and rear tire. Whole package, hurt like hell, actually hit the ground. And like the bumper sticker says holy.rider777, Jesus loves you, but everyone else thinks your an a$$hole.

    used or new. I don't really recommend buying used freeride bikes. You never know who had them before you. If its new, that's a hard bargain to pass up. PM the link if its new, I'd like to check out the spec.

    maybe...

    Ann Coulter and 98 are doing it... Doesn't that sound dirty. I bet Ann, unlike the Stinky, comes with a zurt port.

    Finally! We all knew this guy was a phoney, it was just a matter of time before the horns showed!

    OK so who is posing as this unholy rider? Come out of the closet...

    I always loved that bumper sticker, it rings so true amongst the real and fictitious posters on this board.

    I like the one that says "Jesus was my co-pilot, but we crashed in the mountains and I had to eat him."

    Just saw that for the first time on saturday...

    Back to the bikes... There's no competition unless the Dirtbag has an X-Fusion Inverted Shitwagon, or maybe a judy...

    Dirtbag Owns Stinky. After I rode a stinky for a few days, I decided that they are overrated piles of Stinky ****. And not just regular ****, but the "flaming burns your ******* on the way out I just ate a SuperSonic Jalepeno Cheesburger" ****.

    Just wondering why you say that?
    I'm thinking both are great bikes; the stinky new goes for $800 less is all......

    Stinky and DirtBag are two different breed of bikes, take a look at BB height and HA and SA of the two.

    Coiler and DirtBag are a close comparison.

    Maybe that's why the Stink is so cheap - not as versatile as the Coiler.

    Yeah, I bought my bike used from Josh Bender
    I just did not like the feel of the Stinky. I most defenitely did not feel as though it would take as much abuse as I know it can. I'm sorry, but after 4 days on a Stinky, and only a Stinky, I just can't bring myself to even think about getting a kona. Maybe the new 06' model is better than the previous few years...

    Kona's are not bad bikes

    Hi- I'm rather new to the area, long time lurker, first time poster.

    I've been riding alot around the area, and have yet to find anywhere to ride my Kona Stinky Deelux. But it is a magnificent bicycle, I really enjoy it and don't understand why there are so people that dislike Kona out there.

    Neither the Kona Stinky nor the Transition Dirtbag are really to be considered "big bikes". Neither even have 7" travel. The Stinky is closer to 7", with 175mm travel. The Transition Dirtbag only has 170mm, which is 6.69". And the guys at Kona ride ALOT too, and from what I have heard they are very nice.

    If I had it to do over again, I would have bought an actual big bike with more travel (if I would've moved to Colorado as planned), or more relevant to this area would be one of the new "trailbikes" with 6" travel and around 32 lbs. Neither the Stinky nor the Transition Dirtbag will be under 40 lbs. Will you actually ride a 40 lb bike? Not if you currently ride a 30 lb bike, but I don't really know any of you guys, so maybe that is not the case.

    Both bikes are nice, but like I say I have not seen anything in this area that justifies them.
