Struggling to source 2008 Stinky parts...

Postby stinky96 » Wed Jan 02, 2013 01:43 am

Does anyone know where I can source dropouts for my 2008 Kona Stinky or will I have to contact Kona directly? Also I keep finding 2006-2007 ones, presuming they don't but worth a try, could these fit?

I had a look on there, as far as I could see none for the 2008 just the 2006-2007. :|

Konaworld. Or else eBay.

Couldn't find any on Ebay either! I'll contact Kona tomorrow if I don't find any.

I have a 2010 Kona Minxy and have contacted Kona on may occassions to find out technical info (stuff that's not published, i'm not just being thick :wink: ) and they have been really, really helpful :D

So anyway, that's what I would do!

Last time i looked chain reaction had a load of old kona stuff. They may possibly have them or else winstanleys bikes might be worth trying.

Local Kona dealers? It's not a rare bike, should be easy enough to get one.

Thanks for the replies people! I've emailed both Kona themselves and the nearest dealer around about my area.
