Strengths:    09 kona stinky air. very beefy and kind if heavy but looks like it will last a while. has 1.5 headtube which seems better than the 1-1/8 because the front doesnt drift like previous Stinkys. has the DOPE rear floating brake set up.

Weaknesses:    the cost. I bought just the frame and even that wasnt cheap. The whole bike costs $6000, closeout price is like $4700.
No front derailleur mounts.

Bottom Line:   
really heavy duty, & with the right tires it goes pretty fast.
also what is great is that nobody has one, at least I never saw one in the past few months. so its not very common.

Strengths:    Great geometry,stable at speed,good jumper

Weaknesses:    Came with all mountain stem and bars(this is supposed to be a free ride bike).it`s expensive.

Bottom Line:   
Good bike with great components(- the stem and bars).the D.O.P.E. system works great.I just don`t think this thing should have all mountain components on it.who wants to spend 4500 on a bike and have to upgrade anything on?(for the guys goin` big), so 4 flamers for me.
