    Coiler rotor size variations???

    I am currently purchasing an 05 Coiler. On holiday recently I popped into a store that had an 05 Coiler with 8" rotors stock out of the box (17")..
    Now that I am back home and having ordered the same bike in an 18" from my lbs, a 19" demo model comes in (mine is still on the way from the factory) with the standard 6" specced rotors, as stated in the catalouge and at konas website.
    My question is are these variances normal? I mean i would have only expected 6" rotors as that is what is specced, but having seen another bike with 8" on them sort of pisses me off.

    Can anyone enlighten me if this is something done commonly by manufacturers, ie they run out of certain parts on one shipment so, spec it up with spare parts (presumably left over from a stinky)?

    Interesting. I should be picking my '05 Coiler 17" up today (hopefully). That would be SWEET if it came with the 8" rotors. It's probably going to be one of my first upgrades. As soon as I pick it up, I'll write back and let ya know.

    I'm picking up my 17" tomorrow. I saw it last weekend and I'm pretty sure it had a 6" front rotor. I'll let you know.

    Picked mine up Monday. 6" rotors as well. I wonder if the bike you saw was special ordered with the 8's?
