For the price point I would go with the stinky. Kona gives you a lot of bang for the buck tup

For €100 less than the Stinky you can get a BigHit II, which has more travel (8.2" on the BigHit vs. 7" on the Stinky), is lighter, and comes with a much better drivetrain than the Stinky. Look into it.

Don't listen to people with kona in their username; they're usualy biased.

I think the Stanks look sick this year, what with the single crowns and such. I'd personally save up for a Giant Glory FR, though.

Nothing against the bike (as I have never riden one), but the cable routing looks super sloppy...

i've had an '04 stinky and a '06 stinky deluxe. i cracked the chainstay on the '04 and cracked the rockerarm on the '06. neither were covered by warranty, even though they should have been. besides that, they were great for getting me into the sport b/c performance wise, they were good. some ppl talked about specialized, i've owned 4 specialized bikes in my life and they're lifetime warranty on the frames is tough to beat. big hits are ok bikes. i'd say they're perfect for ppl wanting to do extreme freeride/dh. dont forget about the enduro SX trail, they're great all around bikes, particularly for lighter freeride/aggressive trail stuff. they do the big stuff well too.
