    Kony Stinky Deluxe Front Derailleur?

    I just got a good deal on a Kona Stinky Deluxe and have been building it up. What front derailleurs are you all running on them? It seems like a tight fit to get on mounted.

    Pretty certain that 08 was the last year Stinky was offered/built with a FD (Front Derailleur).

    Correction; 2010 Stinky-Six has a FD.

    It has all the cable routing for it... I looked at the website and they came with the hammerschmitd cranks.

    Right.

    2010 Models; Stinky Six has a straight seat tube, allowing for a FD. Where as the

    Stinky and Stinky Deluxe are constructed for non-FD operation.

    Have finished your build?? post some pics.
