    Kona Big Rove

    Anyone own or ridden the Kona Big Rove? The geometry and flat bars are appealing.

    I have not ridden one. A rigid 29er makes sense to me for a multi purpose bike. Especially if your commute desire is to stay as far away from autos using cell phones as possible!

    For on/off road pay attention to the gearing as compared to full MTB (lower/granny)

    Not sure the weight either but similar is typically upper 20s stock

    Nope, but I am looking at in too :-) Pity such frameset is so rare (btw. Kona does not sell framset for BR), so if you know any alternatives I am all ears. Also for sharing experience from BR owners.

    @jrm, Rove and Big Rove framesets are different. There is no problem with availability of Rove framesets, but with BR.
