    What happened to the 06's?!

    Since when did the top of the Kikapu line get a MX Comp fork?!? And full Deore. Man I have a custom 04 Kikapu Deluxe and I remeber the stock setup being a lot better then this. The whole Kikapu line looks like crap now and from what I can tell, the components are all entry level. What gives? Has anyone noticed this with any of the other Kona lines?

    Crap??? Did you look at the specs on this thing?

    https://www.konaworld.com/2k6/preview/king_sup_2k6.htm

    that's an awesome spec. I bet that thing costs a fortune.

    The King Supreme is going to run ya $4999, but hey its a race ready bike (except the crap headset, come on Kona you could have at least thrown a nice Cane Creek or FSA unit on). But, the Kikapu line has grown with a couple new models. There is now an entry level 8 speed model. The Kikapu Dlx is like the 05 Kikapu and the King Kik is like last years Dlx. Then The King will be introduced as a little nicer bike than the 05 King Kik. I think it gives people more choices and a broader range of price points.

    $4999!! i was pricing out the king frame 04 for a custom build and can surely get a better setup way below that, i should hope these arent the prices that go to market

    unless that is the dropped a pound or so for 4" of travel then sign me up
