    05 Kona Stinky or 04 Kona Stinky Dee lux

    i found a deal on a 05 stinky for 1600. should i get the 05 instead of the 04 DL. is there a big difference in the components?

    The fork on both bikes are about the same, so there's no advantage there to either bike in my opinion. The 05 has a DHX shock, while the 04 has a Vanilla. I'm running a DHX on my 04 and I can tell you it is so much better than the Vanilla, so the advantage goes to the 05 there. Travel is the same on both, and although I haven't checked the component specs on the 05, I would imagine the 04 since it was a Dee-Lux, might have slightly better parts than the regular Stinky. It's really a toss up, but you can't go wrong one either one.

    the 05 has the better shock, but the 04 has better brakes. the hayes mag's are leaps and bounds better than the hfx-9 garbage. its your call.
