    Shrinking Stinkys...04 vs 05 frame sizes???

    I was going to ask the basic, "What size bike should I get", but after searching around I found something more interesting.

    2004 Stinky (DeeLux): S(15"), M(17"), L(18"), XL(19"), XXL(20")
    2005 Stinky (DeeLux): S(15"),M(15.5"),L(16"),XL(16.5"),XXL(17")

    Whats up with the fairly significant difference in sizes? Are the 05's smaller overall than the 04's?

    That's probably more just the seat tube length/standover that they are decreasing. All of the other measurements like TT length are probably similar to last year. I think that those numbers you posted are probably decieving.

    Correct. You need to look at the top tube lengths. a buddy at Kona was telling about how nice the new Stinkys are with the increased standover because of the shorter STs.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
