What should I get, 2002 Kona Stinky With 6in Bombers, or Big Hit Spec?

What should I get, a Kona 2002 Stinky with a marzocchi 6 inch bomber fork, or a Big Hit spec. I am limited in money, only around $500 US, and I found both of these bikes for that price,(I'll tell you later where I found them so you can go check it out yourself) which one should I get?

Is the kona complete? Seems like a sweet deal. Go for it.

yeah its a complete, and I dont know the exact fort name, all I know is that it has 6 inches of travel.

do you think the bike can handle 5 foot to flat, and a 10 stair? ( not at the same time,lol)

yeah I think it can handle 5 foot to flat, but that's not really good for your bike. but it could do it no problem. the 10 stair- yeah, not sure how big this ten stair is though.

this all depends on your weight and the spring on the bike too. if your 300+ i doubt it could take it. :D it should be fine though.

Yeah, I'm only about 115 pounds, but will it bottom out on a, maybe, 8 or 10 stair? I dont want to bottom out all the time, if I did, I would keep the bike I have.

How big is an 8 to 10 stair? is this to flat or landing on the stairs?

I doubt that you would bottom out. it depends on the fork though. if it has soft springs maybe, it shouldn't bottom out though. i think the bike would be fine though. it's not really fun to do drops to flat though, it's better to do to tranny.

I just find what ever I can to ride, and if that happens to be a bunch of stairs, that fun too, I acually like jumping stairs, that leads to my next question, would the suspension also be plush enough to soak up the stairs nicely if I was going to ride down them?

yeh sorry bout that...for the first ever time i didnt read the post properly...

anyways my mate EV had to save for 2 1/2 years to get his new 04 stinky...and didnt have anything to ride in the meantime...so if he can wait for a wicked bike then he should..if he cant then he should get the stinky...

there's no way that bike can do those things you asked about.

...so where was this complete Stinky for $500 listed? ;)

ahhhhh, you had me worried there, it is acually a common site for bike ads, I listed a wanted ad, and he came to me with it, so he doesn't have a ad. I just offered a lot of people money, a lot of them turned me down, but a few didnt. and this guy with the stinky is not emailing me back right now.
