Strengths:    Tremendous value for the price.
Hydraulic disc brakes.

Weaknesses:    For the price, none.

Bottom Line:   
I did a lot of reading and riding at several shops and based on components, price, and overall personal satisfaction with how I felt on the bike this was the best choice. I've punished this bike in the short time I've had it and I am very pleased. I think the first upgrade I'll make is a better fork, at this price point all you'll find is low end coil springs.

'91 Lava Dome: can't let it go....

I bought it new way back when -- a great introduction to MTB. And it still serves me well; now as my commuter bike. [IMG]http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5234/6930581398_d68500d37e_b.jpg[/IMG]Read More »

Lava Dome

Ok, I know these aren't the super bikes of 80's and 90's but this one grabbed my attention on the bay so when it came to me I added the components to make it the bike it should be. It's my first Kona, and that makes me wonder why? Great geometry, history and a genius designer. Read More »
