    If you have to go with one of those bikes I would go with the 05, beefer frame and design so it will flex less when AM riding and also comes with a really nice component groupo.

    It says new RP23 but it's not in the pic. Make sure it's the right size/tune on the rear shock if it is a new one.

    The '05 is better, but it's still 2-3 generations old. Stay away from the 2002 for sure...

    Maybe this is too late, but having owned both, I'd have to say hands down get the '05. In fact, my '05 was the first frame that never broke on me. I had it for 5 seasons, then lent it to a buddy for a couple of months while his frame was getting warrantied, and then sold it to another buddy to replace his '03 enduro. It's a solid frame. Previous to that I went through an '01 and two '03 frames.
