Kona Bikes Sold to Kent Outdoors
Kona lost it in the last years... They did the super slack HA Honzo... But the rest was adult desig. No more Joe, no more Bike Hot Rod, no more weird suspension improvements. Clean and simple lineup with limited number of models which share the same "principals". 2 lines of full sus bikes (Hei Hei design was different to Hei Hei CR, so there are 2 sub species, but entire Process line looks the same from a distance). This is what big company would do. Unification of the products. I am affraid that new big owner will only continue this path and Kona will never return to its cool roots.

Opinion: Are New Bike Component Standards Really That Bad?
So assuming the seafood is the only thing that is eatable... Are you going to starve to death or eat what you do not like? Technically that is still a choice. This is what has happend with the wheels standards. I like my DH and FR bikes with 26" wheels. I am not against bigger wheels (I do own single speed 29er), but I like my bikes. I do not need new bikes, I do not need bigger wheels. The only thing that will force me to buy a new bike (and waste recources, since I normalny wound not buy it) is that there are no DH/FR rims, and tyres are dissapearing quickly. The industry decided to flip the bird on everyone who do not want a new bike. Do I have a choice? Yes, I can drop cycling or I can adjust to modern standards. Do I like it? No.

Bike vs Bike: Connor Fearon's 2007 Kona Stab Deluxe vs 2020 Operator
The issue with this frame though (all between 2006-2008 and some earlier ones) is that you need to use modified hubs. 150x12 which are shorter to fit floating caliper. It is hard go get Sun Ringle Abbah hubs nowadays. Better option is with 2009, when they moved to regular 150x12

Bike vs Bike: Connor Fearon's 2007 Kona Stab Deluxe vs 2020 Operator
I am putting together vontage Kona Stab with exactly the same frame. And have the same issue. L is so hard to get that I need to use M. The major difference is that I have 07 888 RC2X which is closer to stock specs.

Connor Fearon to Sit Out 2020 Season Due to Australian Covid Travel Restrictions
That's not 2005 Stab Deluxe, that is 2007 Stab Deluxe. There was no Deluxe in 2005.

WAKi-bikes of the Future: CannonRail Jeronimo 2020
So.... First. How "roller on clutch equipped rocker arm" will work? Cause one side swing arms/ forks are nothing new and they are not as interesting as roller on a clutch. This may be a revolution. Second thing... head angle... Maybe it is just the dwg, but it looks ridiculous. I have serious doubts about bikes with so small HA.
