Well, you guys probably dont remember, but I asked this question before... I will be buying a new bike next spring, and although it is very early I know, I like to think things through very very well before buying something, and have pritty much narrowed my options down to two bikes. The problem is, ones a softail, and one is a hard tail... so here it is.... Either a Norco Manik, or a Kona stinky...? Will be doing 5-6 foot drops, dirt jumps, urban riding,, kind of everything in between also.
Does anyone on here have any experience with one or both bikes? Please dont say "Well go with norco because they are better" or anything like that because I know both companies are very good and high quality. So what do you guys thing would be better. I have a 2004 kona scrap now, and am good on the hardtail, but maybe a softail would feel alot nicer. Another thing Is I can get theManik for 1650 Cad out the door while the stinky is 2400Cad plus tax. Will end up being about 1000cad more...and that sucks, but then again I do have the money and dont want to cheap out, so what do you guys think about it?
