    ebay, google search. LBS, just tell them your story and tell them that you will give them 5 mins to give you a good price for one. If the offer is good, then take it. The Stinky Dee - lux is a pretty sick bike. You should go for it. If you can't afford it now, earn some money and save up.

    if you act quick you can get them really cheap now, not in a kit, but with your custom setup at beyondbikes, everythings cheap and you can custom build everything, but it's getting close to the new year, so they might run out of cheap 04 stuff and i heard that the 05 scream frame is like 2000 usd

    stinkys in general have rather weak and flexy pivots...

    aside from that though they are tough little frames that are very well speced for the prices...much like Norco bikes...

    dont get discouraged by prices and get a stock stiny what ever you do...go the extra step and get the dee-lux for it will be worth every extra cent you spend...

    just get a used one in good condition...maby even take an extra step up and get a used stab...

    if you want, look into some slightly used ones, from people who never ride cause of college or something. A lot of people have a Used stinky which they only ride on trails, and don't go big so they are like new. Used will do. Norco has some SICK KICK @$$ bikes, and aren't that muhc, like the 2005 atomik or something. it might be on the heavy side, a little more than a stinky. but the frame is awsome. Trust me you won't brake a norco frame that easily.
