    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.

    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.
