    Nah not close I'll wait to see if anyone picks up the suttle differences before I break out the list comon homies, esspecially Tscezzy and Ssinga normally pick these things up pretty quick.

    & Yes one is Old and one is new thats a start,

    a wee clue each pic revels a difference, arghh too easy!

    CC is just being his usual funny self. The differences are probably too obvious to provoke an overload of comments.... Could be wrong though!

    What are we, in the first grade? I gave up finding the different things when I learned to write in cursive.

    Seems a little harsh, most of the Homer clown cr@p is reminiscent of first grade. Pluuuus, it's a fairly common game for guys making bike upgrades - maybe you missed those posts (or were you just joking?).

    Sheesh, that did sound kind of harsh, didn't it? Well, I didn't mean for it sound that bad. Well not as bad as it was probably taken anyway. After all, one could come up with a pretty lengthy list of the differences. Stanchion tube color, fork brand,Turner stickers, american flag sticker on the rear of the seat tube, crank color, crank brand, etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc.

    One is always active especially during braking and climbs better and never skids, one starts skiding just thinking about hitting the rear brake and can't climb because it's just a lousy single pivot in disquise.

    bad attempt at sarcasm I know

    The bike on the left is a Kona and the bike on the right is an Ellsworth.

    Well, they both have Cyclexpress chainstay guards and right/front braking. Aren't they identical?

    So the new TNT bike's yours trailadvent? Who owns the other one? They look like a couple of great bikes.
    {Principal Skinner} Hmm. Whoever did this is in very deep trouble.
    {Martin} And a sloppy speller too. The preferred spelling of 'wiener' is w - i - e - n - e - r, although 'e - i' is an acceptable ethnic variant.

    OK I'll bite!

    Here's the bits!

    1: 2 Spots 04 & 06 (haha no not a Kona good try or an Ellsworth hehe you guy's)
    2: 06 Medium, 04 Large
    3: Stickers
    4: Romic vs DHX air
    5: Headtube gusseting 06 vs 04
    6: Turner Headbadges suttle change nice
    7: Rocker Arms 06 slightly beefier and shaped differently I think 06 slightly longer but have yet to acutally measure
    8: HL vs TNT
    9: Shiny rear stays in 06 over the 04 Model

    My inital impressions have been quite psoitve about the TNT and to date I have felt a difference to HL but only very slight where the HL has had an advantage and where I suspected in braking bumps on very rooty rutted trails HOWEVER yo all

    I haven't yet setup the DHX air correclty, due to wanting to ride the bike rather than play with shocks so initally all I did was set my rebound, I like it SLOW oh yeahhh

    Then my air pressure in the main chamber around 180 psi for a fat boy like me currently weighing arghh about 97kgs shiat

    Train harder, (im in training now)

    So anyways I have now set my boost valve to around 120psi from 100psi from the factory and have also set my bottom out resitance just past the middle setting as on wee drops she was using and lightly bottoming out! I'm using no pro pedal 've found this rig just dosen't need it she does pedal beautifully and I would suggest the best FS rig Ive ridden to date in this regard for me, rear end is stiff, Ive ridden VPP while efficent does not have the feel I like personally, so looking forward to dialling in the shock as it has so much adjustment its scary.

    It might just be me, but does one have a 180 front rotor and the other only a 160?

    Just the frame: Romic Shock, Solid Decals, American Flag, Turner multi colored headtube badge and Horst Link on the Old Bike.

    That is the obvious to me.
