Can anyone tell me where to find the serial number on the frame so I can register it?

Undernearth the bottom bracket shell, right next to chainstay. Another one can be found inside headtube

How does it climb compared to the 153?
Thanks

Feels about the same efficiency wise imo. The steeper STA feels nicer, but that is countered by the slack HTA which makes tight switchbacks a bit trickier. You’ll get used to it, but tight turns will take more body English.

I did 85km cross country event with this bike. Yeah… not the best idea. Lots of long and steep climbs. Only thing making this a bad climber is that the 170mm fork and riser bar makes your handlebar height so high that you really have to put effort in keeping the front wheel on the ground.

Just picked up a medium. Coming off a 2020 alloy 153 but I can tell this bike will be fun. Brakes need to be upgraded

Is anyone running a 205x65 ? Would running that extra 2.5mm mess anything up?

the bridge will most likely hit the seatstay when bottoming out.

Does Kona offer sag points or recommendations to setting up the x? Looked on their site but couldn’t find anything. After a couple rides I’m just starting to mess with settings

Bringing this back from a shallow grave but when I talked with Kona, they said that most people testing were enjoying 28-30% depending on how aggressive you ride. I’ve been racing the X this summer locally and have settled very nicely at 27-28% I’m 215 pounds so I like the added support. My recommendation to anyone though is to try different settings. It may seem minuscule but a few MM of sag difference can change the way a bike rides for sure.

What size is the shock? Have a X comming but just looking what chocks are around in case I want to upgrade the dpx2.

Also what are people finding needs to be replaced from stock? Im fairly quick but tend to not be harsh on parts, are the wheels trash or would a insert help with durability?
