Some people have brought it to my attention Kona makes a really good bike. I believe I am ready to go to the next level but do not know what kind of bike I need.
I have been riding what I have and I have been happy with it bit I want to start hitting obstacles and I believe this bike is limited and I do not want to hurt my self because I am on the wrong bike. I am 6 foot 4 and 285.
I could really use some help on this because I am an odd fit, I am starting to ride my bike everywhere I go to keep my weight down. I came from off road motorcycles and rode a CR500 for many a year. So to me the bike is slow and I ride my bicycle just like I rode my trusty CR 500.
This is what I do and this is what I ride, I am into comfort riding and mostly road riding but make my own path and run up and down steps and hit small jumps.
I ride 80 to 90 % of the time in top gear at speeds between 20 to 30 MPH and just blast obstacles in my path to get where I want to go.
Here is what I have built but I believe it is time to move on, bicycles are a rather new thing to me so some input would be great.
I ride a Rock Hopper 26 with 29 Sun MTX 33's and 40 CM tires with Hope Pro hubs. the bike works great but I think I am ready to graduate.
I want something with a Lockout Fork and Shock or a hardtail? and a seat that is adjustable while you are riding on the fly and I want the bike to be comfortable, I am starting to go 20 or 30 Miles a ride so comfort is crucial.
I have not found a 29 yet that fits me so I have been modding 26's and it has worked great but time to get a real bike.
thanks for any help.
