Kona: WTF Happened?
To be honest I never gave them a second look but not because of any Internet hate or their image, it was because I rode a Stab and it was seriously terrible. By this point I was on a v1 TR450 so it might not've been a fair comparison, but in theory it should as they were both company's flagship product but the Kona never stood a chance. It's different now they have the Operator, that is a very good bike so long as you have a decent shock on it (looking at you Roco). They are definitely coming back. I've had my Tanuki xc/trail bike for two seasons and it has some aggressive geometry for a 130mm bike and is seriously fun to chuck around the trails, jumps pretty well (even held up to a couple laps in the bike park), and still climbs like a goat. Giving it a new lease of life this year with brand new RP23 and Fox 140 CTD, both Kashima, and I cannot wait to get it out there on the trails. Well done Kona for coming through that rough patch, I'd be very interested to try that Carbon operator given how good the alloy version rode with a good setup.

2012 Giant Glory - Medium Bike in immaculate condition. Ridden nowhere near as much as deserved thanks to visa woes sending me back home for part of last summer, then when I came back I had a tear in my shoulder. Bike has very little sign of use, the most obvious of which I've photographed as I don't need to hide anything it is in that good shape. Pedals are a lot more worn than the rest of the bike would suggest as they were on my trail bike when the Glory had my Straitline (not included). When it was ridden early and late season, bike was regularly serviced and maintained. Warranty replacement entire damper-leg as damper was faulty, with maybe a dozen rides since replacement. Fork oil was changed every week and new seals in at same time as leg replacement as a matter-of-course, as well as new bearings in rear-wheel.

Santa Cruz Bronson - 650B Enduro Racer in Carbon and Aluminum
@vondur Definitely must've been a new-web-site fart this morning as the price isn't there any more, as have a lot of other options changed. Cheapest now seems to be the R build at $4200. Shame, should've ordered one there and then.
