Kona: WTF Happened?
With a reference to a few peoples comments here: Expensive? Da fuq? 07 Stab vs 07 Demo 8: Stab price new: $2999 Demo Price new: $4900 Weight... Well you got me on that one, but I think there's only about 3lbs between the two. Someone said about his mates stinky holding up better out in the Alps: Mine has been in service for 5 years, been to Les Gets twice (3 weeks worth total), Winterberg and Leogang. I've done all the biggest drops at each location on her, and she's still perfect. The only defects to the frame are stone chips and a dent in the down tube where Easyjet decided to drop it out of the plane when they were unloading it. My mate's Demo? Cracked frame in Les Gets. I feel that the hate for Kona was based on a few pictures of broken ones and then suddenly it was cool to hate Kona. Some people have different experiences, I get that, but in my 5 years of having owned and ridden a Kona (Quite hard too) I cant fault it. Frame bearings lasted 4 years without being touch. They didn't even see so much as a spray of WD40. Only thing I can think of is the suspension linkages from the 05/06 that folded up on heavy bottom outs. They just hadn't designed a component that could take that sort of force. Rectified with the 07.

Yeah, his left hand doesn't leave the bar for the first "rotation". Then second rotation is with both hands on the bar and it's a normal tailwhip.
