    Are you refering to the video clip of his friend who pussed out on the double shortsided it and landed face first snapping his fork in half??? cause that'll happen to just about any bike you do that enough to.

    ya it was just a fork leg that he broke on his bike.It wasn't the frame or something like that.

    Don't worry about it....

    It's a Stinky, it's a good frame, it is designed to take a beating.

    i think bj was talking about ev, he has a 2004 stinky. anyway, it sounded to me like he was raggin on the stinky when ev was breaking things like wheels and stuff. IMO that is no fault of the stinky because that's just the frame.








    BTW I haven't seen them do anything where their frames' lives would be in jeopardy, no offense bj. but you guys are all pretty skinny.

    I ride a 04 stinky and I have put it through massive abuse and its fine. Check out the fall on the roof drop in the Norcal teaser. The stinky throws down.
    THROW IT DOWN!

    for a start...no one takes anything i say srriously anyways and everyone as you can see thinks im some bloody retard...

    so its your choice weather or not u take what i say seriously...

    ill tell you why i stated that and why i was anoyed with stinkys tho...the frames themselves are really quite tough and really good bikes...apart form the paint jobs being rather thin and easy to scratch or ruin...and the fact there really slow of the mark and slugish (this is only from my experience of riding one for 4 months...but what would i know) the problem i had was with the 04' specs on the stinkys not the frame its self but...the hubs...wheels...shocks and forks etc...as we all know all of that stuff is really dogy and bad componentry at that...and its to be expected that off 20'ft drops your doing to break it...i was just anoyed with it seems as i was the one who payed for it seems as i was riding at the time of the hub breaking...and i kinda fell 10'ft and landed of my head as a result of the hub and axle failing etc...good bike really bad componentry tho...

    i would still recconmend one...just replace the really bad wheels before you ride it...and im sure the stinky dee-lux would be a great bike...it doesnt come with as crappy componentry as the stock stinky as far as im concerned...but like ive said...and everyone else has...what would i know...

    Alright...so you do have a spine. I thank you for finally showing it.

    You must realize that you dont have to "work" on not flying the ******** flag.....just dont take the effort in raising it.

    "hey BJ is the stinky good?" "My friend did this and this and this so the bike sucks because bla bla"

    when in fact....

    "hey BJ is the stinky good?" "The frame is of decent quality, you do not have to worry about the frame as much as you need to keep track of the regular stinky componets......the delux should be fine by all means because of its higher quality componets....etc."

    I could be crossing my bounds...but in all actuality your a good guy, and have a lot to contribute.....just dont sport the BS flag......

    and the other bike with the snaped fork leg was a Stuff not a stinky

    and the person riding it is a sh!t rider...

    the parts are enough to get the bike rolling. you cant expect and indestructable part spec for 1600 bucks. You cant b*tch about the bike being terrible, because (and i found this out over time) you get what you pay for.

    to answer the original question, your deelux will hold up fine. the stinky frames are pretty damn strong and the parts spec if far superior than the stock stinky. Give it hell, just dont expect it to be in mint condition when you crash it

    its a good thing i just got the frame and built the rest up myself.

    i remember testing out a few at my local shop and i really liked the geometry and size. but i didnt want the wheels and the fork. i already had a JrT and a nice set of bombshell wheels so i just ended up getting a frame off ebay.

    after riding it since saturday all i can complain about is the FSA Pig headset. its kinda junk but maybe i'll get a head-lock or something like that to help it out a bit.

    oh yea and my gouged rocker plates. but as someone mentioned in a different thread, just turned the seat collar w/ the spring off to find the right spot.

    no...but still id expect the axle not to bend after 2 months of abuse...then another after 2 more months and the front hub to literally fall apart...and if you were the one who was riding it at the time it would have also hit a soft spot...and as a result im sure you wouldnt have been happy about it...but as a beginner FR bike it would do a great job...just not if your serious about your riding...

    what this statement...

BJ seems to have this great idea that everyone hates him and by the way he words his posts it seems like hes crying everytime he whines about getting "picked" on. Im almost positive most of the 1400 or so posts you have is just a rambling rant of some sort, and has contributed nothing to this board. Im not jesus..... but in my short time span on here, I am damn well your moses in trying to use these "not so negative comments" to help you and not make you want to cry down there in your filthy country of convicts and kangaroos.

    I would say go out, get a job in a LBS...but it seems you know how a bike works. Alas you seem to have to filter this knowledge through the preteen center of your brain.....and before it gets a chance to sound intelegent.... .. its already jibbrish.

    pfft.....Not so negitive.....this post was not so negitive.

    Mabey next time you can understand constructive criticism
    i dont know weather or not zedro deleted it...but if he did than thanks zedro...if not then i wonder who did and if so who suddenly gave u administrative rights and gave you the go ahead to delete posts...

    and i have to admit...not at anytime was my statement directed to be interperated as sarcasim...or was i intending to upset you...and judging form the tone of your post i clearly did in some way...

    but this is what im talking about...i clearly do not see in anyway why i deserved that...and what gives you the right to say such things...i was actually beginning to start thinking of you as a kool person who despite the critisicm was trying to help me reasise my faults and fix them...and in a way you actually have helped me...i believe i have wised up and have since then put my ass back into line...and for that i thank you...but for making that previos statement in no way at all do i thank you...or any longer think of you as a person who is in the slightest friendly or a nice person...but thanks for letting me see what your really like...

    um i dont know what else to say excpet im rather shocked at the rather harsh and sudden outburst...

    i thought it was cool too, just not 20 feet. it looked like fun and stuff but... i do think the manual was very cool and all that, but i doubt it being 20 feet or even the 14 feet that you said originally. it's just my opinion, you don't have to listen to it. i wasn't even there in the first place so you are probably right. good luck in your battle

    maybe you guys aren't familiar with the standard system

    definatly...

    i have to admit the drop does not at ll look the size it used to...when we originally made it...it looked huge...and since then its erroded so much it isnt funny...but i assure its either 20'ft or very close to it...we measuerd it with a sick and a measureing tape thing (to where the guys were landing...not where the tranny starts) probably not the most effective way...but it gave us a rough idea how big it was...and either way we were proud...

    anyways cheers buddy...

    ill try and get some more vids up...coz its so much better seeing things being done than just hearing about it...maby if im lucky i might get some nice vids or summin this weekend...

    I'm not picking sides or getting into this whole pick on BJ thing...but I will say that kids have killed themselves or gone into their schools and killed others and have been bagged on less than BJ has...so maybe you should all lighten up on him and take what he says (if you don't like it) with a grain of salt...kinda of like I do when I have to hear George Bush talk...
    I have opinions of my own -- strong opinions --but I don't always agree with them.
    George Bush, US President
