    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 ?

    Mmm...mud.

    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.
