    good luck, do you want new too? cuz then its impossible, avid bb7 mechanical are better than the hydrolic brakes that you would prolly end up getting, http://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/187587/ heres an option, ps for this price you will not be getting a nice bike, i would advise saving up

    I didn't say the Konas are a bad ride/ can't be jumped or whipped/ can't be bunny hopped/ can't do XC with them - Konas are cool.

    I just said they could lose some weight.

    Got a chase 4, weights much less than the Konas.

    BTW - In DJ/ Urban, If you're a good rider, the bike matters less... XC is where the weight really counts.

    My current norco 416, SINGLESPEED, weighs as much as my '05 Kona stuff that got stolen GEARED.

    They definitely are not heavyweights. They just aren't the lightest around either.

    Kona stuff stock weight for '05: 33lbs. Switch a few parts and get a single speed kit, you're sitting at 30lbs, which is pretty damn good IMO.

    check out the pinkbike and mtbr buy and sell sections and look for something used. you will not find a good bike for 500 new that has all the stuff you want.
