I am thinking about buying the 2004 Stinky, it comes with a Drop off triple, I have heard a lot of bad things about it. I also heard that it has only one spring in one side, and the other side is air. Can I put 2 springs in it? I heard of someone putting jr t springs in it

wtf man.

where the hell you get the mula for an 04 stinky? or is it from one of your shady friends giving ya a deal...dont even try to fix the drop-off. just take it right off and swap it for a Z150 FR eta. and youll be all better

Who ever mentioned anything about how much the stinky costs, or money at all in that matter?


If you want to know, it's from a store.

So should I just not get the stinky then? With the Drop offs and all? Because I can get a 2003 Stinky with a 2003 Jr T, 6 inches of travel. (same amount)

get the 03 cuz it should be cheaper and with 150 mulas you can make that jr. T into a monter T by putting an hcv thingamajig cartrige in it and you got yourself a kickass bike.

but seriously did you just win the lotto or what. i mean you went from 750 to what? 2k?

Hey now, lets not get carried away. I resent that comment!!! :mad: No cartridge...none or anything else for that matter can make a Jr.T like a Monster T, NOTHING!!! Super T, sure..but never a Monster. :rolleyes: Get your facts straight there buddy, the Monster T is the biggest baddest mother forking actually rideable fork there is, no doubts about it. Super and Jr.T's pale by comparision.

Monster T


Jr.T


;) BIG DIFFERENCE :D

NOT the 2004 jr T, im talking about the 2003.

it says 170 mm of travel, and it says 150 mm of travel, how do i upgrade from the 150 to the 170?

this is the fork im talking about.

My response wasn't actually to you but to SamL3227, with regards to his comments regarding the similarities of the Jr.T to the Monster T.

As far as I know the 03 Jr.T only came in 170mm travel. That is what was on my Big Hit to begin with. Besides, I thought you were asking about the Drop Off Triple, which while somewhat similiar is a different fork?? According to Kona's site the DOT only comes in 150mm travel. If it is possible to actually change the travel good luck I hope you figure it out.

Hey, what's a man supposed too do, let someone talk shite on what I beleive to be a great fork? NO WAY! I can't help it if people are misinformed and need to be reeducated. I'm just doing my part to provide a good public service. :D

oops. said the wrong thing. jeeze you didnt need to get all phyco on my i just made a mistake. i meant to say superT ok?
No worries bro, but that's a pretty big mistake. On the DC fork spectrum those two couldn't be much more farther apart. BTW, I wasn't being psycho, just passionate. I love my Monster and let no man talk smack on it.

Psycho...who's psycho??
