    I have no picts but....

    I have a Kona hanana from 98ish...that was the first one.Then I got the Kona cinder cone in 01 and then the Coiler in 04 and I will be getting the Kikapu(not sure I spelled that right) in 06 for some long race thing I am doing in June. I also....and I really wish I had a pict...Have the word kona (the O looks like a chain ring) tattooed on my outter thigh with a huge mountain/sunset above it and there is a tiny little trail the goes though the grassy area at the bottom...it is beautiful I love my Kona's.
    Boobs to the tube.......

    Hi,
    I'm from Auckland in New Zealand
    My bike is a 2005 Coiler Dee Lux.
    I've only had it for about a week and a half and I love it.
    It just feels so bomb proof, compared to the full suspension Marin (my old bike)
    I'm into "Aggressive trail " riding ie single track riding with a few medium sized jumps thrown in.
    This bike inspires me to greater things - hopefully without too much blood involved.

    Stinky 2006

    I just got my Stinky Primo frame yesterday, so no ride pics just yet.I do have two of the complete setup though:




    In this setup it has 40.5 lbs, the long term plan is to bring it down to around 37 lbs and make an aggressive trail/fr bike out of it.I'm only 145 lbs anyway so the bike will hold up to any abuse I'm capable of dishing out in the lighter setup no problem.

    That's so hot that my eyes hurt. Oh wait, no, that's just the glare from the reflectors and spokeguard. Joking. That's seriously ill. But you really do need to ditch the reflectors and spoke guard.

    Hi,

    I'm from SE Michigan. I've been riding only a year now, but that is long enough to sustain two injuries (seperated shoulder and a knee injury, both required hospital and phys therapy visits). Here is me and my daughter's ride:

    Here's mine....

    My name is Bobby. I am 33, married, daughter on the way. Man, there are some nice bikes in this thread. I live in Los Angeles, CA. I ride an 04 coiler dee-lux. Mavic wheels and hubs, Thomson post and stem, WTB seat, Easton bars, SRAM powerlink. I just ordered the BETD plates for the extra inch of rear travel. I am upgrading the fork and was wondering what everyone thinks. Should I go 150mm travel or 170mm? Man, I've been dwelling on 20mm for 2 weeks now!!!!! Help please.

    ok Ian here
    ive been riding a 2000 kona fire mountain for about 4 months now when i picked it up as a birthday present for my self while traveling around the country with my wife, since then i have ridden it all over the east coast and have had a ball with it, if your looking for good deals i would check out some of the bike rental places in mid fall so that they are trying to get rid of them before winter sets in, i scored mine for a $100 and will probably only need to change the shocks in the forseeable future
    while this pic isnt of my bike exactly it the same model and parts

    I'm Shawn and below is my new-to-me Kona. It's a 2001 Caldera in size 17. I'm still working out all the small adjustments like saddle height/tilt, stem length and handlebar but it keeps snowing on my days off! Riding it in circles around your living room only tells you so much.

    Tres Konas

    My name is Aaron, 23, from San Marcos, TX. Aside from a second-hand Jamis cruiser I keep stored at my parent's weekend place (that makes me sound rich, but its really a ramshackle 2 room apartment build back in the 1950s), I am completely loyal to Kona. Working at a shop has allowed me to have 3 nice bikes, which would otherwise be impossible.

    1.) 2004 Kikapu 21". Nothing is stock on this bike. I swapped out the fork (Zoke MX Comp ETA), shock (Fox Float R), and brakes (Hayes HFX-9) from a Kik Deluxe. The drivetrail is full XT with RF Evolve X-type cranks. It is rolling on Mavic 317s on XT hubs. Cockpit is Thomson and Easton with Koobi Xenon saddle. Not a single original part left on this frame.

    2.) 2006 Dew Deluxe 60cm. This is my road bike since I never could get comfy on drop bars. It had quite a few upgrades, though not as extensive as the Kikapu. All that is stock is the rear derailleur, brakes, and wheels. Fortunately, I had a lot of extra parts laying around, so all I had to buy for this was the handlebar, stem, headset, cassette, and chain.

    3.) 2006 Smoke 22". My everyday commuter bike. Originally I planned to leave this one as stock as possible and only upgrade with parts I already had. As usual, I can't leave anything alone, so now I have another highly upgraded bike. This one sports SRAM's new SX4 rear derailleur and trigger shifters. I also spec'd SRAM 3.0 front derailleur, 830 cassette, and PC48 chain. This makes my first Shimano-free bicycle. Along with the entire drivetrain, the other things I had to purchase were brake levers, grips, and reflective sidewall tires. I also just laced a set of Sun CR18 rims to the stock hubs to give me a little more strength and better braking.

    Unfortunately, the Kikapu and Dew do not get ridden enough, but such is life. That is why I replaced my old commuter bike with the Smoke. Life is just a little more fun on a Kona.

    Here's what my Coiler Dee Lux looked like back in November when it was new. My first bike with a slack head angle or long travel. My, oh my, those steep trails just aren't the same (in either direction...)

    Lets see it with the BETD plates! I've got the same model and have been considering them for some time....that and the addition of a 150mm Zoke to replace the 130 Z1 that currently resides up front.

    ... and if we just ... My Cowan DS

    (first...no second post)
    It seems, that I am the first, who posts a pichture of a Cowan DS. By the way - this is my Cowan DS ! Yeah Baby. This bike is damn hot! It accelerates like a hardtail because of the sweet Fox RP3. And with my special bike setup it is pretty light weight. About 14,5 to 15 kilos ( i guess that's about 30 pounds, but please correct me, if i am wrong with the "pounds"). Me and my bike are located in Germany and i've never seen another build up Cowan DS since now. I want to see more of them, so please post more Cowan DS bikes!
    And enjoy my ride!

    Got my '06 Kula Primo about a month ago. Much lighter than my old Trek 6700 with much better components. I recently added a Thompson Elite post, a King headset, Cateye Enduro 8 comp., and changed the Race Face Dues cranks (heard many bad things) for my LXs. I love the bike; Thank you Kona and Mr. Goodbike of Gainesville, FL!

    Pictures will come in a couple weeks. : )

    You know... There is already a thread for this... But I figured I'd throw my Coiler into the mix.

    ... and if we just ... Hey folks, new to site

    Hey everyone, I'm from Newfoundland, Canada. I am a XC rider. I have been riding Kona's since 2001 and won't look back - Kona's the only way to go. Had a Cinder Cone (loved it, rode it a ton) but recently upgraded to 05 Kula Primo. This bike freakin rules! Don't have any pics yet (camera is on the blink), but here's the basic set up. Pics to come soon.

    Keith

    05' Kona Kula Primo
    XT and XTR drivetrain
    Thomson elite stem and seatpost
    Avid SD7 V brakes
    XT Trigger Shifters
    SDG Bel Air Rl (ti) saddle
    Panaracer fire xc pro 2.1 (blue sidewall)
    XT Hollowtech Cracks (integrated bottom bracket)
    SRAM cassette and chain
    mavic 517(R) / bontrager mustang (F) rims with XT hubs

    About time I posted mine:

    It's a 2005 Caldera that I got as a frameset. This is a picture of the first build about a year ago, and it looks looks best dirty! I' ve sice then upgraded with Eggbeaters, a Thomson stem and a couple off Isis bb's . I have build this bike to be reliable and durable. I also use it to tow a Bob trailer and it is strong enough for racks and panniers (I like to travel with my bikes). The rest of the spec. is mainly XT, Mavic 719 rims, Raceface Turbine cranks and Avid SD-7 V-brakes. I use a simple Marzocchi MX comp if I feel I need suspension but rigid rides pretty well too.

    Here's my 05 Coiler Deelux the day I brought it home.




    My 01 Major Jake frame I built up last year. I use it for bad weather commuting and take it on some singletrack.




    My wife's 05 Dawg Deelux when new.




    She also has an 04 Lana'i that I don't have any pics of.

    Hi,

    looks beefy for sure, but I did my best to make it the lightest possible. Mavic 823 rims and DT Alpine III spokes, Hadley Hubs, Titanium spring on the 5th, and Mojofied Boxxer with Air Cartridge. After this photo was taken, I changed the cranks to XT (because I found out current XT should be strong enough for me) to make it even lighter.

    If you were a Kona fan, you would not want to hear about it.
    Although I had done a lot of modification on my stolen Dawg, mkIII did not need much things done to make the bike rocks.
    However, I loved the way my customized Kona Dawg looked.

    A bike fan

    No more of a Bike fan.
    I have had a lot of bikes in the last few years and the Dawg has suited me I also have A Cannondale Gemini for the down hills.

    I was really interested in the DW link suspension and how you thouhght it rode compared to the Dawg's Faux bar sytem.

    Okay,

    I will make a new thread in Iron Horse section about how mkIII rides comparing to Dawg.
    The title would be Switching to mkIII from Dawg.

    Hey hey!
    I've seen your post post on kona.dk, that really sucks, even if your mkIII works well your dawg was THE best i've ever seen, so sad!
    Your Stab is also constantly upgraded, very impressive! What will be your next modification? X-O with carbon mech :d
    What cables are you running?

    yeah, loosing Dawg is really the sad case, but I gained a lot from mkIII, so maybe it was meant to be.

    Stab Primo's fork is Mojofied wtih Boxxcart and it works great and light.
    I got the 2006 X.O. shifter for the Stab Primo but never had time to put it on. I will change the rear mech to carbon mech if anything happens to the 2005 mech.
    Other than that, I guess the mod on Stab Primo is pretty much done. Cables are Clark's, but the casing and the hardware are Jagwire.

    Ok, so very nice set up as usually. On my other bike i've got nokon cable and they work so well.
    Have you seen the next Burgtec flat pedals? They look so great, i'll try to get them when they'll be out.

    I'm pretty satisfied with the xpedo pedal MX-3 pedals, they only weight 416grams but already survived a couple of crashes. The link is here.

    I will check on the Burgtec pedals, too.....I checked out the web, they are so sick and thick. Nice beefy looking.

    Your bike is gorgeous (the guy with the blue Explosif).

    I'm thinking of turning my 1998 Kilauea into a singlespeed. Do you have your Explosif converted or did it come like that?

    Cheers,

    Duncan

    Well the paint job is custom. The 2004 (and later) Explosif frames came stock with the sliding dropout system. My Explosif remains my favorite bike even though I don't ride it as much as I used to (Spending more time on my MK III and my Evil DOC these days)...everytime I throw a leg over it I appreciate the way it feels. Good bike.

    When you post a new post or reply scroll down and you will see a box "misceleanous options " scroll a bit forther and you will see a box called "attach files" click the button marked upload images and browse to a file on your hard drive to upload making sure it is of an exeptable format and size to upload.

    My 2001 Stinky Five

    Here is the love of my life. My battered but beloved Stinky Five. Yes, the decals are on backwards on one side of the fork slider. I could only get left side decals from Marzocchi and had a little fun completely stripping and refinishing the fork when I took it apart to rebuild it. I figured, what the heck, I only care about the way it rides anyway, so who really cares if one side of my fork looks backwards.

    Otherwise, this is one damn fun bike. Its just such a blast to ride. Its indestructible and tight and just pure adrenaline. I got it for $350 from some dude on Craigslist last year and its not showing any signs of quitting despite the beating it is taking.

    I'll be adding a 2003 Z1 FR this weekend and most likely a brand new Fox Vanilla RC the week after. She's heavy but she's a blast to ride.

    My new used Kona A

    I just picked up this nice kona A singlespeed frame with a yellow reba team from Wayne at Speedgear-bike-shop.
    A cloud 9 shock soaks up the rear suspension and 185mm juicy7 brakes help me stop.
