    Hey Doonk,

    Let's see a pic of that 1989 Explosif. That was the first year -yeah? Did you own it from new?

    Ooh blimey, 6 so far...
    1997 Cinder Cone: delicious, too small, but still owned and totally kitted with trick purple anodised bits!
    2000 Hahanna that's the right size and I've owned off & on with a friend (it's a bit of an unfaitful bee-atch!)
    1998 King Kikapu with seriously dodgy URT suspension that failed to work if you stood up...
    2002 Explosif... Possibly the best bike ever: Pace carbon forks and XTR everything. WHY DID I SELL IT?????
    2002 Chute that I bought on a whim and messed about on for a little while. eBayed it ages ago.
    1999 Fire Mountain frame that I bought a few weeks ago on eBay for VERY little money. Just about to build it up with old skool XT bits. I even built a snowflaked wheel on a Nuke Proof hub for it!

    I still own three steel Konas (but not the Explosif...) and they're amazing.

    You HAVE to see these pictures of the Cinder Cone

    Thanks for sharig your Kona stories everyone, it's great to see the dream alive!

    Two, so far:

    2004 Kikapu - my first MTB

    2004 Stinky Dee-Lux - the Kik lit a fire and so I went looking for an example of the bike I'd always wanted ever since I'd seen it reviewed in Bicycling magazine years ago. How can you not love a bike named Stinky Dee-Lux, and how can you not love a company with the cajones to name a bike Stinky Dee-Lux?

    I'm lovin' my Konas, and I've really enjoyed all the cool people I've met by being a Kona owner -- and that includes some people from this forum that I haven't officially met, like Konut and phxartboy and Kona Joe, among others. The Kona community rocks! (ok, does somebody wanna cue up the "Kumbaya" now?)

    A great bike for sure. Post a pic? However... Casper and I have already mentioned the King Kahuna. A Hei Hei with gussets and ovalized tubing. Check out the photo on the first page.

    well, i am a one bike kinda guy, as a few of you know, i had a 06 Coiler Deluxe for about 4 months, but recently sold it for an 07 Dawg Primo, so I have had 2 so far. i loved the Coiler, was just too much bike for me with all the climbing on our rides. i did my first ride on the dawg primo last night and that 7 pounds difference is huuuuuge, i felt like i could actually climb and accelerate vs. just flogging on the uphills on the coiler. i loved the coiler and i love the dawg!

    Panaracer Fire FR 2.4. I built up the bike with strength in mind...so it's a little on the heavy side. I think it's around 38-9 lbs.

    I own an '04 Hoss and just took delivery of an '07 Stab Supreme frameset. Someday I might supplement everything with a Stinky.

    I dig the way these bikes handle. The full sus models got whacked with the ugly stick IMO but they sure do handle well.

    I've had two.

    Dawg '04 and Dawg Supreme '06. First one was a awesome bike, but the second one was sh!t with to many design and quality faults. I've had a plan to buy my self a Stinky, but now after that DS frame (and Kona tech. support) I'm riding Marin (Quake).

    I'd like to get a hold of one Dawg '04 frame, I really loved it... but as far as the rest goes... nope.
    I'm not a complete idiot, some pieces are missing.

    Five... So far. Still own four.

    199x Cinder Cone. Ancient frame, sitting in my Dad's garage awaiting rebirth;
    1995 Humu. My commuter for several years. Still all original, down to the balding "Rush Hour" tyres (probably change them soon, before I get a blowout);
    1998 Hahanna. Ridden all over the world, before I sold it for reasons of finances and space ;
    1998 fire Mountain. With Paul Comp singlespeed dropouts;
    1998 Hei-Hei with full complement of period-correct parts.
