Strengths:    Cro-mo frame and fork, super graphics...everything!

Weaknesses:    uuuhhhhhh....it came with reflectors???

Bottom Line:   
This is actually the A'HA, which the dealer said was a '01 model. I haven't been able to find a picture of it on the web, but the frame design is similar to the Schwinn Heavy Duty. The frame is sturdy, and has great red, white and blue graphics. It has a flip-flop rear hub, so I may put a larger sprocket on it in the future. It's surprisingly light and a blast to ride. I can see doing some custom additions later (Profile cranks, Shimano cantis or V-brakes and maybe a more sophisticated seat) but for now it is just great! The price was unbelievable, only $280 US. If you like cruisers / singlespeeds, then buy this one if ever you come upon it.

Strengths:    4130 Chromoly frame fork and bars. Good geometry rides almost like my Stinky 5. Very stable at high speeds maybe that explains the second top tube??, but every Kona I have ridden has had that attribute.Exceptional value. Good wheels almost...

Weaknesses:    I have found from riding the two bikes that I occassionaly bash my pedals on the rocks in Bidwell, so a higher BB would be in order to give more clearance.The suspension seatpost lasted only a few rides, though upon puchase of my bike I new it's demise was inevitable. The back wheel on my bike needs to be relaced with any thing other than those black spokes that looked so cool. I am currently up to 16 replaced spokes but the rim has no dents and is still round.( I just keep extra spokes around 14g X 258mm to be exact!!)

Bottom Line:   
If you can still find one buy one Kona does not make this bike anymore and does not plan to make any in the future.

Strengths:    Extreme Durability

Weaknesses:    Weight. That funky bar in the main triangle. It adds to the durability but I think it is unecessary.

Bottom Line:   
If you like cheap single speeds, it's hard to beat this. The bike is much better since the upgrades. I have replaced everything but the bars, stem and seatpost clamp. Why bother? I've had cross country bikes, but never had as much fun as with the SS cruiser. It's a strong and reliable bike. It looks kinda funny, but so do I!

Strengths:    REALLY STRONG

Weaknesses:    not full suspention

Bottom Line:   
My buddy Jessie owns this bike and he has judy C shocks on the front. He has put on all BMX parts like profile cranks
and other stuff. He works as a courier and rides like a freak. And He loves to chase me on my khs dominatraks down the shore all the time. Now think about it THE SHORE on a single speed hard tail. Not only that but he just raced DH with me in the summer session at whistler. So if the frame can last one year of pownding and Dh raceing than its good in my books and I don't even like hard tails.
