    09 King Kahuna fork offset?

    Can anyone confirm whether or not the 39mm fork offset listed on the Kona website for the 09 King Kahuna bike is correct? I was not aware that Fox made a 29er fork with a 39mm offset. Is this custom for Kona, or just a mistake in the specs?

    I fully acknowledge that someone as ignorant as I am shouldn't reply at all, but as nobody else has, please let me offer the following propositions:

    a. the chances of such careful spenders as Kona shelling out extra $ on something special are 0.000001%
    b. the fact that a Project 2 fork has an offset of 39mm may be not wholly unrelated.

    I think we recently established that for many years Kona quoted geometry figures on the basis of a P2 being fitted, even for bikes that had much longer forks and were not available with P2s, so could this be a similar case?
