    Aftermarket Kona Rockers?

    I thought I had seen aftermarket rocker arms for Kona (specifically the '05 Coiler.) Can anybody back that info up? I'm in need of some, and upgrading from the stock boat anchors would be a bonus over getting some from the factory...Thanks! -APOC www.apocdesign.com

    They make them, but they increase the leverage ratio to over 1:3, so don't even bother with them. If you want more travel, then get a different rig.

    This has been discussed 349879856 times in the Kona forum.

    don't do it....not worth the money and then you need a heavier spring and it voids your warranty
    the trick is ENJOYING YOUR LIFE EACH DAY, don't waste them away wishing for better days

    i got some from Zedro a few years back for my 02 stinky.. they're pretty nice, but really heavy.. he designed his to be able to mount a longer stroke shock, so it actually decreases my leverage ratio.. works reall nice.. but in retrospect, i'd rather just have a frame designed for the longer travel. i had to switch to a 24" rear so rear wheel wouldn't hit the seatube... now it's way racked out and the BB is SOOO low..
