    Do you have a Kona Hoss For sale?

    Ok, so I was suggested a Kona Hoss Hardtail frame for my size.

    So I am looking to see if any one has a frame for sale?

    I have looked every where and it seems that the Hoss is really hard to find, none on ebay nor on craigslist near me.

    I am willing to pay for shipping.

    Mainly looking for frame, the one that i liked most was a 2005 Kona Hoss hard tail with the top of the down tube was kinda almost flat and tapers down to more round twoards the bottom.

    If any one knows where I can get one for a good price please let me know

    Also, i looked but this forum doesnt have a classified's section... other wise i would have looked in there and posted in there.

    So, what is your size, type of riding you are going to do, and price range? Finding a Hoss may be tough, but there are other frames that may be appropriate. Give the specifics, and you will likely get more advice than you can use (or want).

    First suggestion, look at On-one 456. You can put a 4-6" fork on it, and it will ride well. Good price even when not on sale.

    Yes sir, locating a bike you can use to get started riding is more important than frame cosmetics. You can always pick up something trick once you build up your endurance and are obsessed with the sport...and it will happen.

    Anyhow, I would look for a Large or XL frame. Try checking with your local bike store and see if they can help.

    Sette Reken frame is supposed to be able to take a pretty good beating. I am 100 lbs lighter but it hasn't given me any issues at all. Not sure if there is any bigger riders than me on one that has posted up about it.

    Op, look at getting some type of surly like a karate monkey. You say you are looking at startjng with a lot of road riding so a ridgid fork mtb would be a good choice and surlys steel frames will be plenty durable for your weight. Do you have a set budget?

    A friend of mine built one up for his wife. I (@ 6'5" and 265lbs) actually thought it was a bit on the . . . . . "flexy" side for someone like me. JMHO

    If the OP is still looking for something strong and substantial and cannot find a HOSS, you might see if you can find a used DB Response frame. Those things are also built like a brick outhouse and should be pretty cheap on the used market.
