    Why no Kona 29"

    I was looking at Kona's site today I just wondering why there is no Kona 29" frame. Something the Explosif as a 29" with the sliding dropouts would be oh so cool. And if priced just slightly more than the Explosif I would be buying one right away.

    Instead I am just going to get a Fisher Paragon.

    We've been kicking around the idea of a 29'er. At some point i assume we'll offer one, but we want to get the geometry dialed in to our liking first.
    Thanks,
    Joe.

    Shucks. And I was hoping the whole 29'er thing was just a trend that would eventually go away.

    I am happy to hear you are working on one. I am very in-decisive so yours may be on the market by the time I decide what to do. I am thinking more and more of going for an IF 29er instead of a Gary Fish.
