    Kona Unit?

    Where to find a kona unit? Anyone know of online retailers, etc...and what should I expect to pay for just the frame. LBS says "they can only get it as a complete bike"
    Any help is appreciated...

    If you're interested in the frame then get your LBS to order up the Explosif frame, same as the Unit but with shifter cable guides and a derailleur hanger - of course, you don't have to use them You should be able to get that for $400-450 I think.

    Skip the middleman and Call Kona directly in Washington at (360) 366-0951. Ask for Kristen. Ask her what the availability of the Unit (or Explosif) frame. She'll tell you right away whether they're available or if there is a wait. Your LBS is FOS that they can't order the Unit frame only. Then let her know where you live, she'll give you the name of a local Kona dealer. Call them with the info Kristen gave you about frame availability. If they're in stock, order one expect to see it in about a week and a half.

    Last month I bought a Unit and Explosif frame, $400 bucks each at The Bike Co in Orange County, CA. They originally told me less than a week, but Kona dragged their feet with the shipping and they showed up in about 9 days.

    Great bikes though!
