Stab Supreme & Stinky Supreme - Spot the difference?
Can anyone tell me the difference bar price and a few minor spec differences? I can only see pedals, 31.8 as opposed to 25.4 bar/stem combo, tyres and seat clamp. Geometry is listed as identical. The price difference between the two is ?800 ($1,535) over here, now I can't see where this extra money goes. I'm not entirely sure on the material used on the stab, it may not be 7005 aluminium but would be suprised if it was not.
It would be most appreciated if anyone could highlight the difference. Sorry if this has an obvious answer which I have missed.

The price between the two in the US is $100. And they're pretty much the same.

Stab Supreme is adjustable between 9" and 8" of travel, Stinky Supreme is 8" only.
Eh, either way, not $1500.

I asked the same sometime ago and Joe/Kona came up with a really vague reply , something about specs not being final bla bla bla
Bikes are identical except for pedals and tires (in Canada at least), that's why we didn't order the Stab Supreme... it's 500$ more here... not worth it for rubbers and colors!
This is what I suspected but quite why we're paying so much more than you chaps across the pond I don't know. I realise that I should a price increase but really three times as much between the price difference of the two models?
Very, very expensive pedals!
Ok, just kidding. Truth is, the factory screwed up. We were supposed to get charged the Stab Supreme price for both, but they accidentally quoted us a lower price on the Stinky Supreme, and we made them stick to it.
Unfortunately, most shops already knew this, and bought up nearly all of our Stinky Supremes.

I swear it didn't say that before, and the UK site still states "Kona Clump DH Aluminum/8" Travel". Anyway thanks for clearing that up Joe, most obliged.
