    Frame question

    Hi guys I just got my warranty frame in today. It looks like Kona did something to be nice, they sent me a King Kikapu frame. Originally they gave me the choice of paying for the King or getting the 05 Kikapu frame and having to buy a new shock. I decided to take the 05 frame because it would be cheaper in the long run. Well I got the call today and the frame is beautiful, but I am concerned. I am not the lightest rider, I weigh about 205. Is this lighter tubeset going to be a problem or is just as strong as the other frame,

    Shouldn`t be a problem. I ride a Kula Primo scandium frame at a scant 1393 grams - that`s 3.0 Ibs. Very thin walled tubeset. I weigh 180 without gear.
