I got my Kona Stinky DLX in Sept of 2003. It was my first DH/freeride type of bike and I had no idea what I was getting into. I just knew I wanted to have a big bike and ride scary trails. Mission accomplished . I rode it in Moab,Whistler, Post canyon,Black Rock, North Star and countless other down hill trails. The dents and scratches tell the tale. It was a great bike and it was just taking up too much room in the garage. plus extra parts are a good thing. Stinky D... R.I.P.
