    I have a Kona Kahuna as well... an 02 I might add. Walked into a bike store looking for a full-suspension bike after doing some kayaking last summer, and there it was. Took it out for a ride up to the park in the city of Fayetteville, down some trails, handled pretty well, felt good. Came back, dropped 600 bucks on it, and rode away. The only thing I don't like is the rear shock doesn't have a lock-out. It's a little bit heavy, but good enough for Captain Thurmond's Challenge, Black Bear, etc. The only pic I have is an action shot... so:

    Here is my cherished Kula who recently bought the farm. The diagnosis ?... broken top tube. Thanks to Kona for honouring the warranty and replacing my hardtail with a King Kikapu.

    Kula
    Kona's a great bike company. I've had three Konas.

    Was that Kula an aluminum hardtail?

    I'm one of 'em Kona steel or titanium hardtail or "just give me a Stinky" fan. I like Coilers also. (But i'd trust any Kona bike)

    Yeah it's an Easton Ultralite aluminum frame. I had a steel frame before it (Lava Dome). broke it too and got warranty. I really noticed the difference in frame materials when I first rode the aluminum. I thought my teeth would pop out. It only took awhile to get used to it and and really love the stiffness of the frame. Very fast! It's going to be hard to go to a full suspension sfter being so used to riding a hardtail.

    Here's a photo of my cracked Kula frame. It started cracking along the weld at the top tube seat tube juction.

    Sorry, no pics of my perfect Kona :(

    I've got the Kona to end all Konas, but unfortunately I don't have any pics yet. Here's the spec anyway:

    2001.5 Stinky Five Rasta frame, 15"
    2004 Marzocchi Z.1 QR20Pro w/race axle
    2004 WTB Dual Duty FR wheelset
    Profile Cro-Mo race cranks, 5-arm
    E.Thirteen STS guide
    WTB Motoraptor 2.4 FR front, Mutanoraptor 2.4 FR rear tires
    Hayes Nine discs, 6"r/8"f
    Truvativ Holzfeller oversize bar/stem
    Chris King NoThreadset
    2004 XTR GS rear derailleur
    S&M platform pedals
    ODI Ruffian Lock-Ons
    WTB Rocket V Stealth saddle

    The bike weighs in at 36 lbs even. Its weight surprised me because the cranks must weigh about 6 lbs alone. The colors of the frame mislead people into thinking that the bike's a joke, but then I kick the crap outta them on both the climbs and the downhills. I've also got 6" plates for it, but it's perfectly balanced right now at 5 and 5.

    My Vintage '92 Cinder Cone

    In '93 I was in Juarez, Mexico at a second-hand shop and found this Kona for $90. I didn't know much about mountain biking, and had never heard of Kona before, but God, I loved this bike. There was also a Rock Hopper (I had heard of those) which my friend bought, but I could tell that the Kona was special. The sloped top-tube and flat stem helped lower the center of gravity and the bike really climbed well. Notice the cool Propulsion tire and the Joe Murray logos all over. I had no idea who Joe Murray was at the time, but I concluded that he knew how to make a pretty kick-ass mountain bike.

    I kept riding this bike until about a year ago when the seat post fused into the frame and the bottom bracket gave out. The bike shop was unable to replace it (couldn't get the old one out). I upgraded to a newer Gary Fisher Ziggurat and in a moment of stupidity threw the old Kona frame in the garbage. I sure wish I had it back now, because I'm sure with enough effort I could have fixed it. Anyone out there have a '92 red Cinder Cone frame that they'd be willing to part with?

    New Coiler Dee-Lux frame to replace an 03 Heckler that is being examined by the factory. Having ridden single pivots for so long, I had no clue how laterally stiff a rear end could be! This thing is bomb-proof, the day after it was built up, it went to Snow Summit for two days of abuse. I've been riding it more than every other day for the last month! Love the matte-black finish & solid handling.

    Hey all! How goes it?

    Lets see, Im 25...holy crap, when did that happen? Oh well. I call Washington state home. Ive been seriously riding for the last 5 years or so. I used to ride mostly XC, seeing how many miles I could get under my belt while keeping both wheels on the ground. That got a little boring though...I felt I was stagnating. So I started to try new stuff. Pushing the limits of what I thought I could do. Now I guess my riding resembles that of the freeride variety. I just love the feeling of learning something new, or landing a drop or jump that I once thought was impossible....

    OK...so on to the bike. Its a 2000 Pahoehoe hardtail that is still going strong...despite the abuse Ive given it. I was going to say it's mostly stock, but I think Ive switched out most components as they have broken. Im on my 3rd BB, 2nd set of chainrings (almost 3rd), 2nd handlebar (the original snapped as I was pulling up on them, hoping off a curb), 3rd saddle, 2nd set of rims, 2nd cassette. Oh, the fork is leaking oil from a very bad place...so thats next on the reapir list.

    Peace

    Shot through the heart
    And you're to blame
    You give love a bad name...

    My First Post!

    Hello all, I figured this was a good way to break the ice. Here's a pic of my 2004 Cinder Cone. Just got it last week and love it. I'm ashamed to admit that the colour was the real reason I bought it.

    Thanks, I'm not sure what you are saying though. That is the black/white color. That is the only color the coiler comes in, while the coiler dee-lux is straight black.

    I never realized my bike looked different than the factory photo! They must have changed it to all white becuase Kona offers no choice in color. That is interesting though, I never noticed that.

    Yes,

    All of the 04' Coilers I've seen were all "Creme". The only thing black was the rear.

    It's pink? Maybe it's the settings on your monitor. It's maybe a yellowish color, but not pink.

    My 04 King Kikapu

    Got a new 04 King back in April. Don't have a picture, though. Looks like the one on the website. Has a King head-set, Stan's No Tubes with Specialized Roll-X Pro Traction. (These are really sticky!) With a 100mm stem. (stock 120mm was too long.) Also put XTR derailler cables and housings on. (shift muck better) Only thing I wish for would be another inch of travel

    thanx, tho the paint doesnt look too "amazing" if seen up close (rub-offs/chips), but thankfully its dent free. i got it like 3 years ago off a guy who raced on it in early 90's, and i did virtually nothing with it afterwards. it just sat there. i finally replaced the p2 fork with a mag21 and started riding it this summer. i never thought i would tire of riding my trusty old trek 970.......................until i rode this.

    Hi, I'm Jamie from Ohio and this is my 04 Stinky. One of the best bikes ever made. It's all stock except ODI grips and Time Control Z pedals. This winter I'm gonna buy Tioga Factory DH 2.5 tires. But I do like the Nokians that come on it. Maybe I'll get another pair of them.

    How you all doing fellow Kona Owners? Great to be here!! I love Kona Bikes!! Here is my Kona although it is not my first one!! I really miss my '96 Lava Dome Race Light - It was bright Orange with Panaracer Fire XC Pro tires (Blue Sidewall) and had Kona project 2 forks.. everything else was either kona made or Shimano STX (The good stuff back then) but alas I had to sell it to make ends meet while I moved my family. I did get a Specialized AIM Ground Control frame out of the deal though. As far as this Lana'i i got it off of ebay for cheap and have since started my long process of upgrades. I have a disc brake adapter coming in the mail so soon I will add Deore disc brakes and Deore disc hubs laced to Sun Rhyno Lite rims. I have added Fire XC Pro tires and new Trigger shifters and upgraded the ride to 8 speed. Also added Truvativ Fire X cranks and BB. I added the fork a few months back, it is a Insync Elixer fork with 100mm of travel. Forgive my avatar I'm a Kona nutcase. If anyone knows where to get another '96 LavaDome drop me a line!!

    My Kona Kula Primo.....

    Sub 20 pounds too, even with that heavy zokie....... Kinda funny, unpadded carbon slr saddle, and a marzocchi........ joke's on me! Scandium frame is very very stiff, which I wasn't expecting, since my scandium roadie bike is oh so smooth.

    '03 Super T on Stinky

    Doug Here, Do my riding in Southern Indiana,I've got a 2002 Chute,2002 Stinky Primo, And a 2003 Dawg
    pic of Stinky(Now has 2003 super-t,Evil SRS,Sram)
    Hey Doug, have you been happy with the 2003 Super T? I've found a used one that looks to be in great shape and I'm thinking it would be a great upgrade to my Stinky. I wondered if the cryofitted lower crown might be a pain...

    I'm In

    OK, I thought I'd join in with my picture. Thats me with my '04 Stinky after a run at Jones Creek in WA. I usually ride with the Fat Tire Farm crew, great group of guys (and sometimes gals). If you live in the Portland area, you probably know about the Farm, but if you haven't visited them, you should. The best (and pretty much only) freeride and downhill shop in town.

    Later,
    Aaron

    Did you get that from Whistler somehow?

    I didn't think that they'd be selling them off so soon....

    The guy at bikeshed.ca had a couple of frames from the whistler fleet...........and he guarenteed them, so you could really check'em out after you got it. Mine was in great shape. Just a couple of scratches.........no dings or dents. Here it is in action........

    I have a Stab that thinks it's a Stinky. It's actually on eBay right now, so I might not have it for long, I'm not sure.

    2004 Cinder Cone

    This is my first bike in a couple of decades and I've had it a couple of weeks now. I wish it was a little warmer near Chicago so I could ride it more; I need to build some stamina.

    Before taking delivery, I swapped components a bit - Hayes hydraulic discs & levers, and XT crank, deraillers, cassette, shifter.

    ... and if we just ... Bad Ass Black Coiler Dee-Lux

    From the most root infested rocky steep single track of the Virginia backcountry to Snowshoe West Virginia's bike utopia, this bike goes up, down and all around. The ultimate all-mountain machine. It's so fun to ride!!!

    This is my first post here! I just got the kona because after years of trials and urban riding on an xc frame this is what happened landing about bike & a half long double. I landed fine but it just snapped. The jump wasn't even that big but the frame just fatigued. It was a DBR (Diamondback's high-end series) frame.


    I decided to order a fully beefed up rig. My wife got me the kona for Christmas through her shop for about $600. I love it so far. The drivetrain sucked so I swapped all but the shifters out already. The hubs will be replaced in a few months also. I also ride a Custom Cannnodale hard tail for XC use.

    05 Kona Shred (custom built)

    Lo folks!

    I'm Rix from Hungary (eastern Europe) ,this is my first Kona ,I've been dreaming about owning one for like ages now. Just finished building it. Sadly I couldn't take it out for a proper ride that cause :
    1. It's freakin dark ,cause it's night time around here.
    2. It's damned cold outside ,to hell with winter.
    3. I'm just getting out of a cold and don't really want to get sick again.

    I could do a shorter manual for the first try ,that made my day ,love the geometry.
    I LOVE DIRT JUMPER BIKES !

    2004 Kona Caldera

    Hi, I ride in the KC, MO area. I just purchased this bike. I've only had it about a week but it's great. It's my first Kona but chances are it won't be my last.

    It's much more bike than I need right now but it was too good of a deal to pass up!!

    Beaut!
    I'd lose that fender (mudguard ,splasher ,whatever it is called) though.

    Strange though ,the local dealer has only got the kind of Coilers that are on the Kona homepage.
    Are these all white Coilers some limited edition or something ?
    Can't decide wich one I like more though.

    Lose it for what? It keeps most of the mud off of me.

    I'm sure it does keep some of the mud off you ,but I think it's ugly.
    You'll get muddy anyway ,won't you ?

    haha This is mountain biking, not a fashion show. I don't care if it looks silly or not, it helps alot to keep mud off of my back.

    The rear fender actually makes a huge difference. I went biking the other day with a friend and the ground was incredibly wet and muddy. He had no fender and his backside was all muddy and wet and mine stayed relatively clean and completely dry.

    Not a fashion show indeed ,no point in being a girly and trying to avoid the mud.

    But actually I must admit my bike's look IS pretty important for me.

    It's really your choice ,man !

    Sooner or later you'll get to the point others have. the point where "who cares" what it looks like as long as it does it's job. I keep my bike inside. Therefore less mud the better - on me or the bike.

    Word of advice: Don't knock it till you try it.

    Well ,my bike keeps getting dirty ,with or without ugly parts and so am I. And anyway I wash my clotches and my bike after any ride ,so it doesn't matter.

    You could wear a big umbrella hat ,but you'd get wet in a storm anyway.

    Edit : This is just my opinion ,I don't find neither my bike or myself clean enough to be inside affter a ride ,but I wouldn't like to keep it (or myself ) in the garage ,so no matter how tired I am after that ride I will take time to clean the bike (and myself of course).

    What I wanted to say was that I don' think that a rear fender will keep the bike or the rider completely clean ,since even if there's no mud ,you'll be sweaty and your bike will be dirty.

    If you like how it looks and find it has been useful for you ,than keep it ,your bike.

    Peace

    My bikes.

    This is my new King Kikapu, it's a pretty sweet riding bike. I've only had it since Late October, and i've already thrashed it.



    Here's my townie, it's just a lot of fun!

    Hope My DIRTY custom King Kikapu !!

    Hi Kona lovers, heres a pic of my very dirty 98 King Kikapu. Bought the frame a few years ago and built it from there, custom paint job (Metalic Tangerine) aswell as fabricated travel plates (Extra 3" if required). The originals have been chromed for bling bling days !! I try to keep the components up to date. The bike looks very used but I would faint If I knew the total amount I have spent on her

    I just ride local UK stuff really with a few mates who all have Konas. Most of them with Stinky's or Stabs. My Kik takes everything they want to ride. We take yearly trips to Wales and The Lake District for proper riding (And the obligatory drink stops of course).

    I use the Kik most days to get to work through a local wooded area so it gets good use - hence the state of it at the moment. I love my Kik !!!

    It's a 2004, I bought the frame/rear shock from Keith at the Snowshoe resort bicycle shop. Our local dealer didn't seem interested in taking my money. I just swapped the Marzocchi Z150 for a 2005 Z1 Freeride with ETA, it dropped approximately 2 pounds off the over all weight. I'm just waiting for a titanium rear spring from RCS to fit the Fox RC, and she is DONE!!!

    My first Kona...2005 Coiler

    2005 Coiler

    This is my first Kona. I tried to get an 04 last year but I couldn't find one. Anyways, here's the details.

    Stock except for Danderboy bash ring.
    Weighs 36 pounds on my bathroom scale.

    Unfortunately I can't ride it yet because it's to freakin cold outside.
