    04 dawg matic

    Recently aquired 04 Dawg Matic. Still waiting for the snow to melt to put it to test. So now it just sits as a nice piece of eye candy.

    Well I'm from the UK, the county of Kent to be precise and have a 2k Kona Roast which I got, according to my Kona Owners card 28/10/00

    Frame - Roast (16")
    Forks - Rock Shox Psylo SL
    Crankset - RaceFace Prodigy (isis)
    Bottom bracket - RaceFace Evolve
    Chain guide - e.13 MTX
    Pedals - DMR V8
    Chainring - RaceFace dh (36t)
    Rear mech - Shimano M952 (shortcage)
    Shifter - Shimano XT M750
    Wheels - Hope Bulb on Mavic 729s
    Tyres - Maxxis Highrollers (2.35 ST)
    Stem - RaceFace Diabolous (50mm 25.4)
    Post - RaceFace Diabolous
    Bars - Kona OB
    Seat - SDG Freestyle
    Brakes - Hope Minis (185 and 165)

    Wonderful bike to ride and have do a few disciplines on it from 4 Cross to XC, the latter being quite hard work. The headset needs replacing, still using the one that comes as stock which is going on 5 years old and getting quite notchy. Frame is looking a bit tatty (the stickers and chainstay are the worst due to some chain suck) so may look to get it re-sprayed soon.

    My '05 Kikapu Deluxe

    Wooohoo she came in on Thursday and they had her ready by Saturday...
    So I drove up to the bike shop (went to NH so I could avoid paying $80+ in taxes)
    and picked her up. Thanks to a few people on the threads I swapped out the stock
    tires (I probably wouldn't have noticed how bad they were) and had the shop put
    on some Michelins.

    So here's a pic from today before I went out for a ride at the local state park.

    Eastern CT

    Hey CTKONA75,
    I live in Eastern CT too and ride a 2004 Kikapu. I go riding at Bluff Point about 3 times a week but wanting to check out some of the other areas around. I'm 40 so probably couldn't keep up with a 29 yr old, but if you wanna go ride sometime, let me know.

    My family of fine Konas...

    Howdy -- Here are shots of some of my Konas. I'm lucky enough to now have five of them in my basement, including:
    - 2005 King Kikapu -- purchased as a frame in January -- a darn fine ride!
    - 2005 Explosif -- purchased as a frame in December '04 -- my singlespeed, that's now set up with a 29" front wheel and a rigid fork.
    - 2005 Jake the Snake -- with a nice quarter-sized dent in the downtube after getting stepped-on during a race last fall... bummer.
    - 2004 Stinky Delux -- on loan from djcrb9.
    - 2004 Kula Delux -- currently not built up

    I'm hoping to get a Kona freeride bike of my own soon so that I can give djcrb9's bike back to him. I rode a Coiler Delux around at a recent Kona demo, and it was very nice. The Stinky is heavier, but I love it's bombproof durability when I mess up a log ride or am taking big drops.

    Peace out,
    MG

    The color shown in the '05 catalog, and on the Website just doesn't represent the color accurately. You bike is a 2005. Congrats!

    Color says so yeah, but decals are 2004, I think...

    Hm, that bike seems to be kind of an anomoly. Spec and decals show it to be a 2004, but that's a color we've never used on a Coiler. I'm pretty sure that's to color of last years' Shred. That just makes your bike all the rarer, congrats!

    Cheers,
    Joe.

    I will probobly get allot of Cr@p for this but the rear der is a rapid rise. Rumor has it Shimano makes a Dura-Ace rear der that is rapid rise but I have yet to see one.

    I went rapid rise on this bike because my freeride bike has a complete Saint kit on it (rapid rise)and I want all my bikes to shift the same.

    I even have a brand new XTR rapid rise I am about to install on my Kona Dawg.

    2005 Explosif

    Just finished building my Explosif yesterday afternoon, only rode it around the neighborhood but I'm digging it!
    Handling feels nice and tight,
    Looking forward to this weekend to pour on some miles!
    The only thing I don't like is the QR seat collar that came w/ the frame.

    Congrats on your new Explosif. I've been loving my '05 Explosif too. I've got it set up as my singlespeed, and it has exactly the feel I look for in a great steel frame.

    Happy Trails!

    That's an aweomse looking Explosif! Interesting setup, too. Almost looks like a trials bike, but not quite.
    Thanks!

    Ok, now that I truly have my bike here is a real-life shot of it's non-standard color:



    As far as I can see, it has components listed for 2004 Coiler on www.konaworld.uk.com

    Here's my Kikapu Deluxe with updated color scheme for '05. I have the rear pretty dialed in, the MX Comp has been a bit tricky to get right though. The RP3 is damn good, don't really notice that much power loss over my old hardtail. Just waiting for mud season to end here in the Burlington area, after that it's on.

    My Explosif


    My current favorite bike.


    Here's a closeup of the h-bars. They look a little strange, but they're great.

    nice setup there tall boy!

    i love my explosif too... wish i had your h-bars for mine! i don't know if i told you, but i just swapped out the 29" front wheel/rigid fork setup for an 80mm reduced-travel X-Vert Super. The 80mm fork dialed the headtube angle in for me. It handles like a cat now!

    All I can say is that, if the rumors are true for '06, that 29-inch version of the Explosif will be freaking incredible! I can't wait to see if Kona ends up doing that in production.

    Thanks for sharing the pics CB!

    2004 Kikapu updated

    I have posted this bike before, but just upgraded the fork and wanted to load it again. I added a Rock Shox Duke Race to the bike. I like the way it looks and handles and all the adjustments (not to mention the 3lb savings over the stock fork). I have had this bike for a year now and still like it more every time I ride it. It will never do any major drops, but neither will I (getting older, bones take longer to heal). However, with the lockout set on the new fork, it climbs like a mountain goat.

    Plain and simple

    This is one of mine. 1998 Kona Kiluaea, lost and found again. The only original part left is the frame itself. My friends are trying to convince me to go back to shocks, but htis bike handles the rough stuff surprisingly well.

    My name is Joe and I plan on buying an 05 Coiler or Dawg sometime this week. Ready to buy, just trying to find a deal.

    Dennis~ It would be cool to meet up with some locals and go ride. I am 23 as well and a student at CSUF. BTW where did you get your bike from?

    Hey joe,

    i bought my bike from La Habra Cyclery. They're an authorized Kona dealer so u might wanna check em out. Yeah, it'll be fun to hit up some local trails. I'm a beginner so i'm sticking to some fairly tame trails for now. I just recently hit up Fullerton Loop. It had all sorts of terrain. I also ate it hard after running over a tree stump. Let me know when you get your bike, we'll go riding.

    Check out The Path in Tustin. It's a great shop and the guys will hook you up with a Kona for a good price. I can't recommend them highly enough.

    Joe,

    Like SkullCrack said, give The Path a look.

    They also have group rides every Sunday at 8:15 am. Meet in the shop parking lot. A great way to learn the local trails.

    You are still welcome even if you buy your bike somewhere else.

    Good luck,

    Winston

    First Kona for me!

    My name is a Keith and I am a chronic mountain biker. Here is my 04 Kona Kikapu Deluxe. The only stock part about it is the frame and rear shock. Currently I am wrenching bikes full time and loving it. My bike cost 2.5x more then my used car (1984 Volvo 240 $1000, also a super sweet rig) and I would rather go riding then take long walks on the beach.

    here are my Konas,
    1. the Cindercone (2005, bought in fall 2004) has stock components except:
    sram x9 sifter, x9 rear der., xt casette, xtr chain, bashguard
    2. the Coiler (2005, bought it yesterday, HAPPY) has stock components except:
    xt sifter, xt front/rear der., blackspire bashguard (xt casette, xtr chain on the way (ebay))
    bought the cindercone after my GT avalanche 0.5 got stolen,
    that's the bike that i rode for a long time, suddenly, it wasn't there...
    broke my heart... I was so pissed, so I bought the cindercone
    then comes the coiler

    graduated from university of toronto, electrical engineering this year
    currently unemployed (yup... they lied to you, engineering jobs are impossible to find)

    My new Coiler Primo

    Hey Lonnie in da house. I just got her last week and love the color. It is mostly stock I have added a bashguard and lock-on grips, I am waiting to have a new wheel set built.

    I reside in the pacific North West, Seattle area. This is my first full suspension bike, the DHX 5.0 is great for climbing, I am getting use to extra weight.

    Heres a terrible pic of my brand new (only rode her twice) '05 coiler.
    Just swap the spd for some big cage pedals, and bleed the front disc once (hmm i wonder what happens when i undo this), rides amazing dh and climbs nicely when sat down, even though the front shock needs a pump.

    '05 Stinky

    First fully after 12 years of various hardtails. This bike makes freeeride easy, I was getting 3-4 foot airs off bumps in the trail on my first ride. Taking it to Canada Olympic Park tommorow to put her thru her downhill paces. The picture is crappy, I'll post better ones when I get 'em.

    My 1998 Kona Ku

    Only original things left are the frame, seatpost and front XT brake. It has done a gazillion miles and I blame the 120mm forks for cracking the headtube...

    Coiler in Moab

    I rented this Coiler In Moab and was totally impressed!!! You can ride it all day up anything and still have enough bike for airring. Usually ride a 03 Stinky in Lynn Woods, MA.
