    2000 Kona Stinky

    I have the opportunity to buy a 2000 Stinky and was wondering what you guys think about it for use mainly for AM riding? It has 5 inches of travel and I know back in the day it was considered a DH bike but in my area there really isn't anywhere to ride. Any advice is appreciated.

    I hope this helps! I had a stinky five. It was well built, beautiful, solid, a work of art.

    It was heavy, and was not up to snuff in the pedal-bob department. I was and still am in no hurry climbing. But it was rough if you wanted to mash up anything. In it's defense, going down was very confident and it sucked up anything in it's path.

    I consider it a downhill weapon. Not so much AM.

    Thanks for the info. My friends back home are all into DH so I was trying to see if I can live with a DH bike out here so I don't have to buy another bike when I get back to CA.
