Read on to find out what The Kona Mash Up is, why over 400 riders turned up in the typical Welsh horizontal rain in Winter, rode for over 6 hours, and finished with wide smiles upon their mud splattered faces!

The Street bike gets a dirt touch.

The 2009 Shonky was more of a street riding bike, with v-brakes and a rigid front fork. Kona has decided to spec the Shonky with a more well rounded build kit. The Shonky for 2010 has a much more dirt, street, and park ready build.

Kona Bikes Canada recently called upon us to come take a look at their new bike lineup, and allowed us to take some photos. Sorry, no we can't provide you with the top quality shots we got, as this is a sneak peak, but here are some of the bikes, and future changes you can look forward to. Kona has clearly gone for a more simplistic graphic design for 2010, moving away from the multi-colored bikes and started looking more and more at visual aesthetics.
