Just talked to the LBS and they have 06 Stinky's in! Holy Crap!

does it come w/ 29" wheels?
Looks really flexy.
I was hoping this thread would be dirty, possibly relating to junk and shaving. I am dissapointed.
Um.... what's different from last year?
They changed the "5" in the model year to a "6".
Here's a hint:
So basically the same.
Does that mean you're getting one?
I have an 04 and I was waiting until 06 to get a new one. I didn't think they were gonna be shipped this early. I just bought a XC bike, but my world may have to be rearranged. I'm going to ride it after work, and see what's up.
For Sale 2004 19" Stinky Best offer over $1000
I'll give you $12.75 and a couple semi-rotten apples.
Hey its the same design as the 1961 kona!
Kona's look so nice, for an overpriced average bike. :evil:
you must be one tall dude......
So - did you test ride the '06?
I'll Paypal the $$ and send the apples in a small shoebox.
So its like a Turner now?
Why does a bike company have to make changes to the new year's model? I mean, if the bike seems to be keeping customers happy, why make changes just for the sake of making changes?
Christ, I don't know. I just ride whatever works.
and so what?
It's all in the pursuit of the perfect bike design.
Or it's marketing.
I'm not sure which.
"Well we added .05 degrees to the head angle, changed the color of the shock bolt, and changed the frame material to be another 1/2 percent aluminum."
You know, it all feels the same to me.
I'm pretty sure most technological "advantages" are lost on me.
Yeah well - we have been hoping for a new year model of mod, and haven't gotten it, so we will settle with bike improvements for now.
Sadly, I did not ride the new Stinky. They had a small that was boxed up still, so I "blew a load" on some Race Face upgrades (cranks, post, stem & bar) for the Kikapu, to be installed tonight! The LBS even matched Price Point prices! On the lookout for a Silver Manitou Black, but will see how the MX Comp feels on the mountains first.
Now I'm only tingling...
Now I'm pissed.
The LBS got an 06 Kikapu today, instead of my 05. Bait & switch? Too bad it's freaking gold... http://www.singletrackworld.com/mod.php?mod=submit&op=showimage&sid=1647&img=1647-22.jpg
I WAS considering a Kikapu...but not in that colour.
i would buy your stinky.. but as soon as I say i want it you'll probably tell me your selling it to your LBS for store credit or something like that...
Trust me, it's available.
i wanted the ss dammit
