I actually liked the old decals better.


Ya exactly, they all have very decent parts, but man, kona blows the big one with making a decent paintjob.

please say that they have got rid of that crappy magic link

Funny you say that, cause I was hoping it would be on the dawg as well. I own a Coil-air deluxe and love the magic link. Rides awesome and no service issue yet, and I ride the bike lots. Please tell me why you dont like it?

Ye I agree they do all look the same besides paint and parts. They need to revamp there entire line of freeride bikes and that nasty dh too.

Why mess with a tried and proven design? You dont
Ya your right whats the point of evolving and trying new things, lets hope all bike company's use the same designs for ever.

omg the new konas look ugly as hell. i hate the colors. the cowan is alright though. the 07 cowan looks like a specialized hardrock, but this year they completely changed it

guess ill have to stick with the 08 stinky. colors are original

if you ask me they are much better, especially the geo
you can always re-paint the frame

yeah thats true. maybe anodize it haha. the 09 colors are very unique. same with every other brand like specialized

the geometry looks way better. the cowan really looked like an XC bike. literally

yeah, i hate that one, its way to high, i rode one and it felt really unstable, my nice low norco and my friends p3 feel alot better, but nw kona has really cleaned up the dirt frames

While i like the paint jobs on the 08 stinky's better, im envious at the 09 parts. for the stinky, upgrades include ride dh cranks, e13 chainguide stock and wah wah pedals. Sucky how they still got the POS roco on the rear and HOPEFULLY the 09 marzocchis will be relaible and bomb proof again, unlike this years rebadged SR suntour shit heaps.

Also is it just me or are the stinky's now running 1.5 headtubes? if they are im really gonna be pissedReally Mad , i would really love a 1.5tup
