I'm not an engineer, I'm just an idiot with a somewhat educated opinion that quickly deteriorates to ignorance.

From the Top: Hans Heim - CEO of Ibis Cycles
I must say I am more of a fan of Ibis than I ever was after reading this article. Great read!

Here's Kona's All-New Satori Trail Bike - First Look
@markg1150: I can get behind what you are saying. I still think the Process 153 is fantastic bike and yeah the Honzo is just perfection (had a 2015 Honzo) To say they are ugly, that's a little far, for me I feel some of their bikes just kind look "lazy" I mean for instance, look at the rocker link on this bike... like come'on, just put a little bit of "give a fuck" into the design.....

Here's Kona's All-New Satori Trail Bike - First Look
@JaredHarzan: interesting to hear you have a suspension bob issue. When I get on the gas and out of the saddle I feel it sits in its squat and not much movement after that, I don't even have a Re:Activ shock on there I got rid of that thing and just run a new RS Deluxe. My 9.8 with 2.5 tires, 150mm front fork and what not is 30.8 pounds. Seat angle, yeah could be a slight bit steeper but I got long Femurs so it works out, I have a contact who is a bike fitter and we found out any steeper of a seat angle and it would be hard for me to achieve the proper knee location to pedal location type thing so I can't complain. What size Fuel are you on? and what bike did you have before the Fuel?

Here's Kona's All-New Satori Trail Bike - First Look
@JaredHarzan: I think you should go ride a Fuel. I own a 2018 Fuel 9.8 and I wouldn't call it an Enduro bike, its one of the most capable All mountain do everything machines I have ridden though. And lets be real, how many mid travel 29ers have you ridden that don't pedal well? Bad pedaling bikes are a thing of the past. The 34 tooth up front makes total sense to me the 10/50 cassette allows for flat out speed or saddle seated leg burning climbs. The Trek FX commuter series and the Trek Fuel lineup were the two best selling bikes from Trek in 2017. If there are riders out there feeling betrayed by what the fuel has become it's clear that it made a lot of people very happy as well. And there is always the Top fuel or Procaliber to facilitate the hardcore XC guys wants. I mean look at the new stumpjumper, its 130/150 travel and people are buying those things up like hot cakes. Kona has a cult following just like a lot of brands, so the worry this bike wont sell is not really there. I just wonder if this bike is "too little, too late" Maybe it's time that PB does a big shootout between all the mid level 29ers... it's a fast growing market with some big players and sick bikes. Time for a battle to crown the best! That's something we can all agree on yeah?

Well its about fucking time the mid travel 29er showed up from Kona Jesus Murphy.... Its too bad the price for these bikes is rediculous... You want 3500.00USD for your DL which comes with a low model rear shock, and an okay fork and base model drivetrain? You can get Trek's Fuel ex8, their top level alloy fuel model for 300 less than Satori DL which comes with a better component list and ill go out on a limb and say... Probably rides better... And yeah I know there are other bikes that contend in this category as well I just used the fuel as an example, feel free to add a list below this of other bikes costing around the same but are just... Better... Kona where did all your Cool go?

Are you trolling? Or do you honestly believe XC is an obsolete discipline of the sport? Fuck I hate when I can't tell....
