Just ordered a 2003 Kona Stinky and it should be in soon.
Ive read a few reviews on the rear shock that it comes with and most werent very happy with it.
I think it was a FOX Vanilla R, yup, that it.
People who reviewed it said that they had issues with it bottoming out on 2 or 3 foot drops, and these guys were in the 150 - 190 lbs. range.
Im around 220 lbs. and am worried that I will destroy this thing, I need a new shock that can take some serious abuse.
Money isnt a huge issue, if it means spending 500 bucks to get something good then thats fine.
Any and all opinions are appreciated.
Just remember... Im a BIG guy and I need something to hold my big butt up.
