    Kona unit(or similarly priced diff brand) question ride quality

    I'm really wanting to go to a single speed ride but i'm not positive i want to drop a grand into a custom frame just yet. what i'm wondering is will the kona(449 retail but i have a nice lbs that will probably drop some off that price) or another similar brand/price give a similar ride quality compared to a custom steel frame. if i get a cheaper one i can justify keeping my full suspension frame for a bit to confirm i really want to only single speed.

    yes, besides custom fit I'm sure the ride quality will be unnoticably different and probably better in your head cause you'll have more bikes. just do it. I did...my surly rides great!
