    Need some information on Kona Unit?

    Should I need the same size as my mountain bike?
    Any experience with that model?

    They run small

    A buddy of mine has one and his 18" fits more like a 16.5 to 17 inch frame.

    Kona Unit

    Compare the measurements of your current bike's toptube. The Kona has a low standover height, so it feels smaller than it is. I ride a 19.5" Soulcraft and a 20" Unit. The sliding dropouts are excellent. There may be a review of the Kona Unit on bikemag.com in the next day or two.

    unit

    The unit is nice. Mean Todd from webcyclery.com is building me up a quick release Surly New hub laced to a Salsa rim right now for my new Unit. Can't wait to get it!

    i love my unit...

    my bike, that is. It has a long top tube, and with the low stand over height, combined with the stiffness of a single speed, is a freakin rocket! The stock stem was short, so I changed it, and threw a different front wheel on (XT hub to replace the generic Shi...whatever.) I am picking up a new rear wheel, so I cam freely and easily swap between street tires and knobbies.
