04 stinky vs 05 stinky
A local shop has a brand new 04 stinky forsale for $1275, with the mavic x321's. would this be a wise investment? or should i spend the extra money and get an 05. is there that much of a difference in either that i should choose one over the other? thanks for your help.

I guess for an extra 200 bucks you could get a piggy back shock and an extra inch of travel.If you are going to change things out right from the start i would get the 04 and you have coin left over for upgrades.
Still on Training Wheels!
For $200 more I'd get the 05, you get a a better rear shock plus an extra inch of travel other than that the bikes a pretty much the same. Plus i think The army green is sick!
It's not a good ride if you don't scare yourself at least once.

The '05 frames have MUCH more standover, too.
The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
dont forget the 05's forks have another inch plus a 20mm thru axle.
With only 200usd diff. Id get the 05 for sure.
