    Doh!

    I'm was looking for the same answer - I'm thinking of finally buying a real HT, and wanted a bit of feedback.

    The '04 looks sweet - doesn't look like much has changed on the '05 this year tho.

    Great bike - I raced the '04 last season - 3 lbs for the 19' and it has thick paint.
    Nothing's changed on the '05 but the color.
    I could be persuaded to sell mine for a smokin' deal....PM me if you're interested.

    Ahhh.. thanks dude

    I'm down under - so a trip to my local bike shop would be easier! ... and I want the '05 model anyway.

    The bike is very light - although the top tube seems a bit small in diameter, and overall the oversize tubing is a little smaller than usual. The components seem quite good minus a few LX bits on the 'au model. The fork is probably the best bit on the bike.

    I own a 2005 Kula Deluxe, I have about 600 miles on it so far, so here is what I think about it: it is a light bike with a ride that I would call supple, it is not a harsh riding aluminum hardtail bike.

    Little gripes: The paint is thick & tends to chip easy, I weight 165 lbs, and I do seem to experience more rear brake rotor & brake pad rubbing due to flex in the chain & seat stays at times.

    Overall, I'm happy with my Kula Deluxe!
