Strengths:    It has awsome stability! The sun rims are virtually unbendable. Aluminum frame.

Weaknesses:    Forks aren't very good. Chainwheel sucks.

Bottom Line:   
The bike is great. I recomend it to everyone looking for an awsome dirt jumper. It's very affordable, and it's worth way more than you have to pay.

Strengths:    Very good bike! I love it. Nice frame and geometry.
Strong as hell!

Weaknesses:    Replace the pedals...they aren't that good. :(
The glow in the dark stickers comes of easy.

Bottom Line:   
I bought my BMX to become a better technical rider. I used to ride BMX a long long time ago, now i'm back in the BMX saddle again. And the Kona KuKu is a lot more fun to ride than any other BMX i've ridden. Good for DIRT jumping and some racing to. Very nice.

Get one for yourself to.

Strengths:    Quality build, good specs and angles, GLOW IN THE DARK GRIPS & DECALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Weaknesses:    The pedals suck!

Bottom Line:   
Bang for buck it's a fun bike to ride. I wanted to get back into BMX, but didn't want to spend a lot on a Hoffman or anything like that yet. It's taken some good hits, and the bike is holding up nicely. I wish the stock crank & pedals had been better, but the stock wheelset & tires are good-Sun Ditch-Witch's with over sized axled hubs & Maxxis tires.
The 2001's should be great!

Date Reviewed: April 29, 2000

Strengths:    solid frame, nice geometry, oversized axles are a nice bonus

Weaknesses:    cheesy brake setup, overkill on the handlebar

Bottom Line:   
Unlike, the mama, which was a little bit confused, Kona did a great job with the kuku, as I mentioned, a two piece bar with a sturdy wall thickness would have been lighter, cheaper, and totally sufficient. The brake was alright but a 990 would have felt better. Overall, reaaly nice geometry and pretty well worth the money, maybe next year Kona will put the profile cranks and sprocket from the mama on the kuku and make a higher end version. A no holds-barred set up with this frame would definitely be sweet.
