I finally got my parents to buy my a bike after 5 months of trying. They said i could get a 06 stinky primo. I was so excited. We had the money and all we needed was for the bike shop to order it. Then the shop calls saying Kona only has a 15 inch frame of the primo. :eekster: :eekster: Why isnt there any of the 06 models left when the 07 models havent come out. I loved everything built on the primo, but now i cant get it. I know i could just wait and get an 07 but i dont want a pink bike. I dont know what to do.

Hahaha!!! ^^

They run out occasionally. You need to have them put an order in for an "07", but it will be a while before it comes in.

Sorry they sold out. The Stinky Primos were really popular this year, and sold quickly.
We do have Stinky DLs in stock, and you could also consider something from the Coiler line.
Best of luck,
Joe.

Here's a bone....

No promises but I'll check my local shop and see if the have what you're looking for. So what exactly is it? A Stinky Primo but what frame size? And I'll do this inspite of the fact that you're probably a spoiled brat that get's whatever you want. I should know I have 3 spoiled brats! :rolleyes:

Well im hoping to get a 16 inch stinky primo. And its not like my parents are paying for all of it. They would never do that. I have been saving for an extremely long time. Let me know if you can get it.

What do you think people are going to say?

"Gay, you got a pink bike"

or

"Sweet, you got a Stinky Primo"

I think it'll be the latter.

I really wish it was "sweet, you got a Stinky Primo" but most people around here have never heard of a Kona since most own wally world bikes. So it probably be "gay you got a pink bike" There would be some people around the city that would be impressed by it. We do have some insane bikers around here, but not many. Pink would be more hassle than sweetness.

Here what they got....

I checked my local Kona dealer and the have a Stinky Delux in a 16". No Primos, they only special order them. Good news it's on sale for I think $2319. I wrote it down at work so I'm going from my poor memmory on the price. Let me varify the price tommorow and let me know if you're interested in a Delux. Personally I would have a little trouble riding a pink bike but that's just me. Kona doesn't Always stay with the colors shown early. They added the light blue Dawg Dee-Lux in 05 and I snagged one. It started out as only cream. Cream!!!?? That aint a color it's like a shade of something. Guess I wasn't the only one who thought it was just wrong.

I guess it all depends in his riding style......not on the color or the bike

The pink color may be "gay" or "ugly" , but it should serve one very important purpose, High visibility. At least the hunters won't shoot you. Unless they think your gay for riding a pink bike.:eek:

That truly does suck! I'd been patiently waiting for the prices to drop after the 07's came out.:madman:

Looks like option #2:

Gotta hand it to Kona....

Kona sure isn't afraid to take some marketing chances with colors. When every other company stays with the tried and true black (boooorrring) and Red (classic but tired) Kona comes up with some wild a$$ colors indeed. It's either you love em or hate em. The fact they change them year over year keeps it interesting too. I'm not a big pink guy but I got to admit, if you own a Pink Stinky you are NOT going to blend in with all the other wannabe's out there! Kona keep it wild! :thumbsup:
