    New question here. poll, wtb: Coiler w/Fox 40 or StabDelux

    help me buy my next bike...
    i have or have ready access to these MTBs (that fit):
    a al. hardtail single speed ridgid,
    a 21# al. hardtail with Sid 3" fork,
    a 28# crmo hardtail with Vanilla 5" fork (sweet set up!), and
    a 30# fs with Fox Van? 4" coil shocks and Z1 5" ETA fork.

    my next would be
    a '07 Kona Coiler frame build up with DH kit mounting a Fox 40 or 'Zoke 888 (coil sprung)
    --or--
    a new Kona StabDelux downhill race bike.

    I really want to try DH racing and big mountain descending (lift chair up), esp. around Lake Tahoe region.
    I also want a phat 39# "cruiser" to poke around the SF East Bay canyons, that I can climb on my single-speed so I'd like to try it on a slack gravity rig, so the dual ring with front derailler set up on a Coiler's enticing.

    also, what tools do i need to buy to mount forks and crank sets?

    how easy is it to increase a Coiler's travel to 7"?

    btw, will not void Kona warrenty with a dual crown fork on a Coiler (I checked)

    If you want a bike that can pedal, I would get the coiler, but I would probably put a single crown on it. If you want more of a downhill bike, I would say the stab is an obvious choice.

    Right. I really doubt you can put a FD on a Stab. Why not split the difference and get a Stinky?

    Stinky's good

    yeah, Stinky's good...just seem like a more of a compromise, so I went with the either end of the big bike spectrum, jumst to keep my choices simple. Besides, I've heard that the Stinky's oem drop off triple fork's does not satisfy...

    anyways, Coiler or Stinky frames's about the same: 6" or 7" rear suspension and two chain rings with a front derrailleur. it's cheaper for me to buy a Coiler and a new DH fork

    to confuse myself further, I could get a real good deal on a '07 Demo 8

    Get a stinky Deluxe then, or upgrade the fork on the stinky.

    true, a StinkyD' would do.
    for $3Gs I'd sport an 8" for'.
    can the StinkyD's oem fork Marzocchi 888 RCV be extened for 8" of travel?
