search funtion can be quite helpful . i was in the same situation, and i went with the stinky. i rode a bighit this weekend at mammoth and im still happy with my decision.rockymountainbiker69 said:which is the better freeride bike..the stinky or the big hit comp and why?
yep. i own a stinky, and rented the bighit for a weekend. its just personal preferance, but i like the stinky a lot more.CanadianHooligan said:So you liked the Stinky better KonaBiker? I havent rode eithr of them but i thought the Bighit looked real nice...
yeah. component wise the bighit is a little better, but its also more expensive. before i got my super t the total i had spent on my stinky was right around 1900 after selling all the stuff i replaced. still cheaper than teh bighit, with some pimp stuff. and like i said it comes down to personal preferance pretty much. i liked the feel of the stinky a lot more, and i didnt like the 24 inch rear wheel. and something else i considered in my choice was the dealer. my local kona dealer is really cool and is more dh/fr oriented, but the specialized shop is really lame and the beefiest bike they stoke is an enduro.CanadianHooligan said:Sweet,I thought the Stinky looked nice too..but the bighit looked really nice.It doesnt really matter though since i havent rode either of em and im just judging by looks and components etc.
bighit comps retail for 1950 us dollars.CanadianHooligan said:Thats cool that you've got an awesoem Konda dealer,and i didnt know that you've upgraded some stuff on your stinky.How much is the Bighit stock?In your case I wouldve probably bought the Stinky too.This might sound stupid but what colour is your stinky,black/orange?
im 5'11 and i ride an 18. feels sweet, though some would say i need a smaller frame.CanadianHooligan said:So ADDICT Kona has good quality?Have you dealt with their customer service?KonaBiker another question,how tall are you?
Oh really? Why so?ADDICT said:I have had 2 Stinky Primo's, one 2001 and now I have a 2003 Stinky Primo. Both were bought as a frame only and then built up. If you compare frames the Stinky is much beffier then the Big Hit. I don't think I would feel as confident on the Big Hit. Both are good bikes but I think the Stinky makes a better hardcore freeride bike. Just my 2 cents.
What the hell?!?!?!ezweave said:I've ridden a few Stinky's and the new Big Hits, are you just looking for a bike at the 1800-2000 price point? There are other options if you spend a little bit more (Huffy, MGX, Mongoose, Schwinn).
