    Kona Carbon, Should I Be Scared?

    Hey guys, recently I bought a 2014 Carbon Kona Supreme Operator in almost perfect condition. I have yet to ride it but I am genuinely a little nervous that it is going to snap on me. Could I get some good news maybe? Or some reassurance? Please! Thanks guys. I am probably overthinking it way too much!

    Just ride it, Kona has been building bikes for a long time, including carbon bikes. You're way overthinking it, just ride.

    Sell it....wrap yourself in bubble wrap and never get out of bed. Only way to know that you have a 25% chance of not getting hurt.

    If you are so worried about it....why did you buy it?
    I resolve to constantly assert my honest opinion on anything and everything - whether it is requested or not.
