So the sad time has come to sell my Kona. I've owned the bike for three months from new and it has just been amazing! The only reason I'm selling it is due to going back to uni and I shall be buying another one when I finish next year. This bike is actually amazing, corners like nothing else, the short rear end makes it fun and light to move around but the carbon frame is so stiff it goes where ever you want it. The best of both worlds really. The top tube is nice and long too, everyone I have let sit on her, has said how good it feels and I have to agree. It's the first bike I feel fits me at 6'1". I have changed a few parts on it from what is standard. I upgraded the bar and stem to a RaceFace Sixc 800mm 35mm bar and Atlas 35mm DM stem. Literally the stiffest lightest bar going. I also changed the pedals to Burgtec penthouse because you know, these are the best flats you can get. Just chucked a Maxxis DHR2 Super tacky on the front too! Bike looks new, hardly any marks on it and it still has 4 years and 9 months warranty for the frame and 9 for parts, I would be prepared to deal with any of that side of things for you too. The bike is in Lincoln but I can deliver to the birmingham area as I'm over that way often.

Prototype Marzocchi Dropper Post - Eurobike 2014
I don't get why you want so much drop? Surely 125mm of drop gets the saddle out of the way when you don't need it?

Claudio's Course Preview: Windham DH World Cup 6
I'd like to see you be able to ride that at their pace, it might be easy to skid down on your brakes, but I'm sure it'll be a whole different story at race pace.

First Look: Giant Reign and Glory 27.5
It's like one of the easiest frames to make from carbon too! Nothing complicated like a split seat tube or anything!
