    The Faith is better for the money. it has 8 inches of travel also rather than 7

    i dont like the stinky cuz it has brake jack (unless u get the floating brake). i am absolutely sold on the faith- i love mine. it is bomb proof!

    Alloy says real good things about his Faith. I'm about to go put pedals and a 888 on a used one I just picked up, can't wait to try it out.

    faith. maestro is far superior to the pseudo-four bar of the stinky
    I kinda wish my brakes actually worked, but I guess that just makes me faster, right?

    I recently rode Keystone on my '07 Stinky and brake jack is not really all that noticable and sure did not slow me down, unlike last year when I had my Heckler up there and jack was very pronounced. I say Stinky is the way to go but I may be slightly biased....

    I say Stinky. But if you go Giant get the new Glory 0. Great bike for 3K.

    Faith a great bike, so is the Kona comes down to what you want, but with a name like Kona661, I would have thought it wold be obvious which one to get

    Faith my be hard to come by now since its no longer made, maybe some closeout deals somewhere.

    No issues getting the Kona, get it with the Dope system, floating brake and you'll rock, both are proven, don't get wo hung up on which linkages and pivot systems, just go ride and have fun progressing.

    Just riding a muddy trail. . ..

    Mate, quick question for you, are you borderline retarded?

    If I meant the Glory FR I would have said "Glory FR".

    I meant Glory 0 so I said "Glory 0".

    Sorry but I can't make it anymore simpler than that i'm afraid.

    I think the 2008 Glory 0 comes in Ano Black and the Glory 1 in Ano Silver. MSRP for 0 is $3300 and $2600 for the 1. The DH is the usual Blue/White WC colors, not sure on the msrp of that though.

    Ps: sorry if I got a little touchy there guys but i'm sick of little kids throwing around know-it-all attitudes on here for no god-given reason....i'm off to take my meds.

    The 0 is a killa deal and looks very pretty. 66, Roco, X7/9, Raceface, Juicy.
