2020 Kona Blast (medium) with a story.

Purchased new in May 2020 before all the bikes disappeared due to COVID. My son rode it for a month or two before the factory front fork gave out. Bike shop estimated 6-8 weeks to get the fork repaired and we were in prime riding season. They didn't have a loaner fork, so we ended up buying what was readily available from another store - a top-of-the-line Manitou R7 Pro fork. Still a current fork, the fork alone goes for $1000-1200 USD. I know I'll never recoup the cost of the fork, but the memories of riding with my teenage son are worth it. He has upgraded to a full-suspension carbon 29'er now, so the Blast has to go and the fork won't fit on his 29'er. Trust me, we'd keep it if it would fit. There are some rub marks on the frame from a bike trip we took where the bike rack was rubbing the bikes together, otherwise it's in great shape. Bring some pedals and it's cleaned up and ready to ride. New cables and casings this year.

So, check out the nicest Kona Blast that you'll ever ride. Buttery smooth fork. Beautiful bike and rides like a dream.
