    2011 Kona Tanuki deluxe.

    Hey guys and gals. Had my 2012 Giant Reign stolen a while back after having it 2 months. Now I need a new bike but can't justify speeding another 2400 on one.

    Local guy is selling a 2011 Tanuki deluxe for 1300

    Thoughts. .

    Ask if he has had to replace the frame yet. Apparently the 2011 and older tanuki frames have a known issue with cracking. I had mine replaced under warranty last year with a 2012 frame, which supposedly has a thicker seat tube to address the cracking issue.
