    Coiler vs. Stinky (2005s)

    '05 Coiler -vs.- '05 Stinky: which one would be more fun to trail ride or "freeride" with?
    '05 Coiler w/RS Boxxer dual crown fork -vs.- '05 Stinky: which one would be faster for DH racing on, like the Downieville Classic DH, 60+minuits (edited)?

    The state that separates its scholars from its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards & its fighting by fools.

    For the Downieville DH I would use a basically stock Coiler. No need for a dual crown fork or the extra weight and travel of a Stinky. The longer top tube would be more comfortable, too.

    45 minutes is a smokin' time for the D'ville DH BTW.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
