    New question here. Any Kona Hei Hei owners?

    I'm debating on if I want to get a Kona Hei Hei in the next few months and I'm looking for opinion.

    Right now I'm trying to decide between the Kona Hei Hei (2013) and the Jamis Dakar XCR or the Specialized Camber 29er.

    Also I've noticed that the price for the 2014 model jumped up $100 with the key difference being that they've dumped the SRAM/Avid components for a full Shimano Deore build.

    I'm trying to compare the geometry on Kona's site but the 2013 data is in inches and the 2014 data is in centimeters and I haven't taken the time to convert it all yet.

    Any thoughts or opinions on the Hei Hei would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm wondering the same thing. The frame appears to be the same other than a different fox rear shock.

    Re: Any Kona Hei Hei owners?

    I'm still loving my mine. I wrote a little review a while back detailing some of the changes I made.

    Bike rides great, used it in an 8 hour event last weekend.

    Can you buy just the Carbon Deluxe frame? Any details how much it weighs?
