How do these guys compare to each other? I currently ride a 2006 Stumpjumper FSR Comp w/ 2.4" Fat Alberts and I'm looking to get something in the 160mm travel area.

The Stinky TL is looking rather attractive at $2050 vs around $2800 for the Enduro.

I have done with the Enduro ( In my case I own the 2010 model) so many things, I do- Freeride (up to 6 foot droops) , DH, and of course AM. I couldn't tell what is better because I havn't tried the Kona.

Check the weights. Kona looks like it is spec'ed heavy. Would make it less versatile. Geo is similar except chainstay length (spec is shorter) and seat tube angle (spec is steeper). So geo wise - the enduro looks better to me on paper.

I love my 2011 enduro. Never ridden a more dh like trail bike! But I am replacing the stock shock to get a pushed monarch with a bumper in it to accommodate bottom outs. For some reason specialized left a bumper out of the rp23 and the bottom outs are harsh.

How much did the PUSH mod cost? How fast was the turn-around?
