Selling my size small (15") 2006 Kona Dawg. It's a 5 inch trail / all mountain bike. It's in good condition, with wear expected of a bike that's 12 years old. Have had the bike since purchased new in Redmond, WA. Sentimental ride as this was my first full suspension bike. Replaced it with a Transition Scout, and selling due to the fact I simply don't ride it much now. Parts replaced or upgraded over time include: Brakes: Avid Elixr R's (180 front and rear) Bars: Race Face Respond 760 riser (1.25" rise) aluminum bars Stem: Race Face 60mm DH stem (no rise) Oury grips FSA headset Fork: Marzocchi 150mm air/oil fork Rear Shock: Fox Float 120mm (rebuilt a few times with fresh oil and seals...works fine, but hasn't been serviced in a couple seasons due to lack of use/riding) Cranks: FSA cranks with Shimano Deore 3x9 drivetrain Pedals: S&M aluminum platform pedals Continental Trail King tires front and rear (new), both 2.2's (which are closer to 2.3's when measured) Seatpost: Salsa shaft 400mm seatposts, and Salsa seat post clamp WTB seat There is a small dent in the downtube, but has been there for years and has not changed. Frame is stout and all pivots smooth / rear suspension works well. There are typical nicks and scratches from riding over the years, and some chainstay marks from chainsuck now and then. Fork is a replacement fork for original Marzocchi with increased travel. have air adapter for top, but lost the adapter for bottom/negative air chamber. Price can flex with some parts swapping (can put on different bars and stem, different tires to reduce price) Message me with any questions--thanks!

It's pretty emergent ( and probably sounds more f*cked up than factual) but this idea of building a tribe of people to help them better connect with each other and the systems they're a part of. MTB, skateboarding, BMX, surfing--it's less about "winning" than it is about realizing potential, progression of form, and expanding their own (mental and physical) possibilities. Part of it is using these sports and the people who hold a passionate vision for them to impact the world. Whether it's at-risk kids and families in Pittsburgh, it's intergenerational places and spaces in Chicago and Seattle, or I'm looking to work with folks interested in using their products, services and brands for doing some subversively good things... So, if this sounds interesting I'm happy to share more. (see my Twitter profile @petewendel for background. ) If not, I'm still looking forward to visiting Transition bikes in May re: the Scout. Cheers!

Love it when author & Phelps point out skateboarding operates outside the logic of the orderly, sanitized world. A tribe of people that see and use everyday places and objects as a kind of third space. (Stairs, rails, streets...all open for reinterpretation)... There's something similar to MTB-- when you get tools to build a community to fun and progression; it's putting something into someone's hands that's fun but also challenges them, makes them explore and want to progress--that changes people... It's kinda where I see Transition standing out apart from others. It's the real shit, tools for fun and progression.
