Product Description

You've only got a little bit of cash in your wallet. That's cool; you're too busy living life to be working. Of course, that doesn't mean you still shouldn't ride a great bike. New for 2012, the Kona Downside makes for an incredibly tough, ultra-durable, great bare-bones-riding dirt-jump bike that's accessible to the cash-crunched, air-spirited among us. Let it rip and fly free. Note: Expect to be hounded on the internet by every kid wanting to trade you their paintball gun, Xbox, or Deer Master buck knife for your new ride.

I'm shopping for an AM bike and like the idea of a double, but 26/39 or 28/42 seem to be the typical combos, and I'm scared to loose my precious granny. What would be the downside of running 24 or smaller on the front? (I see ... Read More »

    Another downside to 29ers

    Other than I'm not sure whether this should go here or in the other half of the 29er forum.... Anyways, I discovered another aspect of 29ers that may make them inferior to 26" bikes and I don't think it's been talked about much: riding and racing with strong headwinds and crosswinds. I did a ... Read More »
