@Beau-Doug: I'm a 4 bar as well. Jeffsy. Its a proven layout. And I'm glad that the rights to horst link expired so that other manufacturers can use it and give us variety.

@mikelevy: I'm genuinely confused on this one. It doesn't climb that great and the switch is probably needed, and it is tippy in slow single track. Seems to me that it is more of a smasher and less of a precision trail tool.

Yeah. First I saw the awful paint. Then the price tag. Then I spit water all over my keyboard. Thanks a lot spec. Oh, and eff specialized. But thanks for the review.

Field Test: Kona Process 153 CR/DL 29
Well, it's a Kona, so expect the $3k price point to be an absolute boat anchor with the lowest spec components available.

Not a big fan of Kona, but I do like the understated tan.

@wowbagger: @Poulsbojohnny: "not hatchback mileage" is putting it very nicely, my big station wagon (which I am very sure would do all things your SUV does, minus the carpark bragging rights) gets very nearly 50mpg combined. There are several reasons why people buy SUVs but I have yet to be shown a rational one. Well, if you want to go gas mileage, my Triumph gets 50 city and I drive it every day to work and back. :) Bragging rights. Meh. Maybe that's a thing where you live? I don't care about it. I just like the size and versatility of the layout. And 10 inches of ground clearance is probably not something you will find in most wagons. But there is more to it than clearance. You have to have suspension that is suited for rough terrain. Dampening rates need to be correct, shock size correct, spring or bar size, etc. Its no different than a mtn bike... Sure a wagon might get there once or twice, but they aren't made to do it over and over and eventually something will break, possibly leaving you stranded.

@arrowheadrush: But where would I put my children in a hatch? No thanks. They are too small and there are 5 of us. Most of the time its 4, really, but that leaves zero room for anything other than a small bag in the back. Oh, and my GC gets 19 city/25 highway. Not hatchback mileage, but not crap 10 or less like you get in a larger SUV. And ground clearance is something you won't get in a hatch. It fits a purpose, fits our needs, and I like it. So there. :)

@wowbagger: LOL. IT was this text: @ka81: it's just that we haven't broken a hip lately so we don't need a X5 to drive the 500m to the store that sells pants that cover our nipples. As for evil and useless, look for my post on my Grand Cherokee. Great for commuting, great for road trips, great for hauling bikes to the trail, light duty off roading, etc. And not an X5 And I'm not evil. If I was, I'd be driving a Suburban. Now THATs a useless vehicle.
