    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    You can fix anything with that sh!t!!! Actually, that stuff blows. The only thing it is good for is degreasing. Nice frame though, and remember, Loc-Tite is you friend!!!!!

    To night was the test ride and Irealy like it, the only problem is that the rear shock come with a 450lbs spring, I need at least a 600 or 650 , I just install a x firm spring in the DH-3 and fresh grace and seals is ready to take thos concret flat NYC drops.
    Here the first pic is a nice stair gap and second is just a 5 to flat.

    ... and if we just ... i cannot resist

    boy that totally whack form is a slap in the face to anyone who owns a kona. get some style on that thing since you were bashing zedro over the model year. i dont care if its a 1983 stumpjumper i know 12 year olds who gap stairs with more skill than that. i had to turn the laptop away from my stab in fear it might see that evel knievel sh*t and get tainted for life. i hope the kona police come to your house and repo that bike for its own good. that form is so bad it made my pbr go flat and my browser crashed. the last time i saw a dead sailor like that was when the "love boat" got cancelled. take my style, please. attention kmart shoppers we have a special on the new book "smoothness: the juanjo story" in aisle 3.

    thank you thank you. i will be appearing all week at keystone.

    Ok, ill be the next hater. You really have a knack for having the ugliest bikes. To tell you the truth, your kona is one of the ugliest bikes ive ever seen. Why dont you use that new devinci frame and put some parts on it that arent so offensive to the eye? Im really surprised that youre not from Canada, your bike is pinkbike material all the way...

    not to be rude but those pictures show why the devinci broke, looks like ya do some heavy front end slapping, i do think the bike looks pretty nice though, i like those forks. and gj braving the New York urban at night ;p i live in a small canadian city with 80,000 people and i wont ride my bike around downtown at night, there's usually 10,000 drunk natives waiting to stab you in the face with a broken beer bottle and steal your bike, and trade it for a 6 pack, i wouldn't step out of my house in NY in fears i'd get killed in a gangland shootout over my banshee ;p /nod.
