I'm looking at getting a new full suspension bike mainly for freeriding. Its come down to the Kona Stinky, giant reign, and the giant faith. if anyone has tried some of these could they please gimme a little insight as to what they liked and didn't like about them

From what I have read in mags, online, and here all those bikes are good choices.

I would say the Stinky Or Faith. What model number of the faith are you going for (1,2,3) and just the plain Stinky, or deluxe? Primo?
Get the faith, any model. I have a faith 2, and upgraded, I like it betterthan my firends v10 or stab supreme. The frame/linkage of the faiths are worth it alone.

was looking at the faith 3 but was wondering if there was much suspension compression with it compared to the faith and the stinky.. and its just the plain stinky

just worried about the 8" of travel when climbing hills with the faith
With the maestro suspension, My faith climbs WAY better than my friends coiler, and I have 2 more inches in the front and back. It almost feels like the suspension locks out (but it is PLUSH on the down hill)

I'd sooner have the coiler with a DHX5.0 on it.
