    My 2005 Kona Stuff!

    Here are some crappy pictures I took a couple days ago,

    I hope those do something to shift your opinions on the color, it's actually extremely sweet. Cove tried their best to part out a Stuff on a Scrap frame, cause I wanted the green, but it was too expensive and I'm actually really happy with this color. It's called sand on their website and it definitely is sand. If you guys are interested, on the off chance that it gets sunny in Vancouver I'll take some pictures outside in real light.

    As far as the bike goes, it's amazing. I opted for a Deore derailleur instead of the Alivio, and the shifting is just fine. Everything is really solid and there's no glaring weaknesses that I can see. The brakes are definitely the high point, and I'm so glad Kona made the smart move to hydros this year. If the Deore was included in the standard package then there'd be nothing to complain about.

    I have nothing to whine about though, cause I paid 1150 CDN tax included (including the deore upgrade) at the North Van Cove. My bill came to 1202 with new gloves and shin guards.

    Anyone looking at the OB hard tails should definitely go for the Stuff. It offers so much more than the Scrap, and isn't really too far down the ladder from the Cowan.

    Thanks for posting the pics! It would really be nice if you could post some real light pics.

    I'm still pretty much into the Shred's color though and the I like the complete build ,except for the fork and the brakes. Well ,I couldn't really afford anything else anyway.
