    Why have Kona stopped making Ti hardtail frames ?

    Why have Kona stopped making Ti hardtail frames ? Am on the lookout for an 18" 1999 - 2001 Hei Hei or King Kahuna in good condition.

    I heard because the market is so saturated with Ti frames at every price point they though it was better to concentrate on steel and AL

    I will keep an eye open on ebay. If anyone sees one then PLEASE PLEASE let me know. I Would love an 18 " version of one of either the hei hei or king kahuna frames. What is actually the difference ? Which one is the better ?
