    Nice.

    I loved the blue, but black's hard to beat.
    Thanks for the photo,
    Joe.

    Good job! Good job !

    I think that the original color (blue) was beautiful ,but I wouldn't really like to ride it.

    Nice job ,looks pretty grim !

    Ron, no ride report?

    Sorry, but I think it should be a rule here that if you're gonna post pics of your sweet new ride, you should also give some info on how well it rides....even if they're just first impressions.

    How's the 'Zocchi 66 treating ya? You take it off of anything burly yet? How well does she climb? Come on, Ron, give it up!!

    thanks guys, ok here's a little review. been ridin it since the beginning of november with no problems to report at all. use it for my do everything bike - trails/urban/dirtjumps. the fork is actually the Drop-Off Comp. i know everyone bags on these forks but i've been happy with it. that said i'm sure the 66rc is a lot better. the biggest drop to tranny so far was about 8' and the bike handled it with ease. in the granny it climbs like a goat even with urban tires in the dirt. not too much chain noise after switching to a short cage derailluer with a shortened chain.

    Looks like you did good with the rattle can treatment. Every rattle can bike I have seen turned out ungly with drips everywhere and sploches.

    Great Job!!

    Edge, did you get your Stinky painted?

    That black looks great. That isn't stock is it? If not, where'd you get it painted and get different decals? I've got the stock paint for my '02 Stinky Primo but was contemplating sending it out to get a new paintjob.

    Personally, I really liked the stock blue color on that bike. It looks MUCH better in person than the pictures in the catalog or the website. Oh well, if ya like the black color... go for it!

    I actually bought it like that. The previous owner had it custom painted at a motorcycle shop. He got the decals from KONA.

    Yellow Primo pics?

    I like the black... Anyone have any pics of the yellow Primo? Looks good on Kona's website, but I don't think the catalog pic does it justice.
