    1995 Kilauea that I rode from 96-2002 - Sold it after buying a Sugar3, still kicking myself in the butt for it....

    picked up a Kona Ku frame 2 years ago, built it up as a single speed and only ridden it once, the conversion using a singleator is a joke, chain jumps to much, converting it back to 8 speed XT/XTR components. Not sure what year this was manufactured, it is polished alum finish. I dont think it was ever ridden when I got it....

    Had a 95ish Kilauea, then got the shop I worked at to pick up Kona's so I could get another 98 Explosif (which I still have, it got an all new drive train a few years back and is now 9spd XT instead of the 8spd it came with), the Wifey had a Lava Dome. In the years since I've had a Humuhumunukunukuāpuaʻa (still the coolest name to take up a complete tube on a bike) and a Stinky.

    Kinda like these bikes

    fuel the Kona love

    I own four and have yet to part with one:

    1994 Kilauea- setup for out of town guest use and pre-prime time handlebar experiment bike.
    2003 Unit- sits as a frame.
    2006 Sutra- fixed commuter horse.
    2007 Unit 29- fully rigid, midge bar.
    Sometimes you gotta hold onto the grass to stop from flying off the earth.

    ya i might buy it and i can get 10-20% off too so that = 120-240$ off. That'll bring it down to around 1000$ which is pretty cheap for such good specs

    I've had/purchased quite a few Konas..

    1. 1994 Kilauea (stolen from me within 6 months of owning it - repossessed by police 2 years later and returned to me! Now it has been restored as a 23 lbs street bike on fully retro parts!)

    2. 1994 Fire Mountain (bought in 2007 for $35 but the 'Killa' canibalized it for it's Project Two fork, still have everything but the stem and fork for this bike)

    3. 1994 Kula (Bought this to replace the 'Killa'. This Kula frame cracked after 6 hardcore years, below head tube - thank God for Kona's Lifetime Warranty!)

    4. 2000 Kula (Kona gave me this frame to replace the the cracked 94 Kula - 2 years later it was stolen!)

    5. 2002 Bear (Still lovin' it)

    6. 2004 Lisa DS (for the wife)

    7. 2005 Cinder Cone (for the brother-in-law)

    Needless to say I'm in love with Konas and Kona has always backed me whenever I had problems. I just don't feel like many companies in the world warrant so much praise from its customers. I'll be buying Konas for the rest of my life and I plan on keeping every single one of em'

    My first real mountain bike is a 2001 Kona Cinder Cone. Right now I'm looking at getting a 2007 Kona King. My LBS is selling one for $1699.

    Just picked up my first today - it's a 1995 Kilauea. Needs some refreshing, but I'm sure it'll be awesome.

    I have owned 2: a 2005 Coiler that I cracked the frame on in August and I just picked up a Satori as the replacement. Only 1 ride so far on the Satori but I'm liking it a lot.

    I own 3 Kona bikes:

    2007 Dawg Deluxe
    2009 Zing
    2009 Jake the Snake

    I'm thinking of selling the Dawg since my riding style has changed. I have phased into XC/endurance and of course XC racing. The Dawg will not work. I will probably buy something that's not Kona for this bike. I use the Zing for training and for use on my Kurt Kenetic. The JTS is my favorite of the 3 and I ride it in the trails and race CX with it. I love this bike.

    I'm going to pick up a 2012 Kona Unit around February.

    -Cheers.
