There isn't anything wrong with a stinky, don't get me wrong. It is a proven design with decent results and reliable as hell. If stinkys sucked so much they wouldn't make them anymore. they aren't the best design but they work well. You make a good point about everyone having them but don't let that influence your choice. I would say ride both and pick what feels better.

The faiths are smooth unless you are going uphill
I love my faith for climbs. it doesnt really bob unless u stand up and crank really hard. The last bike i owned was 6" raleigh and my faith pedals waaaay better than that thing did. I didnt care for the stinky when i rode it (i was only on it for like an hr tho.) my faith has taken everything i have thrown at it. I raced DH on it for a season, hucked it off of all kindsa stuff and the only thing replaced was the rear der. my choice is the faith.

I'm definitely satisfied with my Faith, a really good bike. My friend has Stinky and there is sth. strange about the geometry, I don't like it.

Definitely take Faith!
