    Strengths:    El sistema Magic Link de Kona, la hace única, no es necesario realizar el bloqueo en subidas. Es una bicicleta muy reactiva, ligera, manejable, y bien equipada. Capaz de subir como si nada cualquier pendiente por dura que sea con su 22x36...

    Weaknesses:    Un poco más costosa de realizar el mantenimiento debido al sistema Magic Link. Es un poquito más difícil de realizar un salto (Bunny Hop). Los neumáticos que equipa (Maxxis Aspen) a mi gusto son débiles para los terrenos humedos de mi zona.

    Bottom Line:   
    Es una bicicleta única, con la que la gente se queda mirando debido al sistema Magic Link unico. Con ella puedes hacer kilometros y kilometros sin acusar el cansancio debido a que amortigua muy bien. No es necesario bloquear el amortiguador en las subidas ya que el Magic Link ayuda. Se desenvuelve muy bien por todo tipo de terrenos, subida, bajada, senderos, pequeños caminos... Muy bien equipada con unas ruedas que haran las delicias de los más rodadores. 100% recomendable.

    Maxxis Ikon 2.2 vs WTB Nine Line 2.25

    Anyone have actual widths on these? I'm on an ikon and I've ran the nine line in the past on a different bike. Current build doesn't leave much room for mud riding with ikon, so don't want to buy the nine line and be left with less room. WTB rep wasn't sure on width, said it should be really ... Read More »

    Need some advice, fix RP23 or buy cheap Ario 2.2

    I ride a 2009 Trek Fuel Ex9 with low miles. My RP23 has lost most of its oil, pro pedal has stopped working and is springy with the rebound. I'm 265 pounds and only do half of my rides offroad. I have a bad knee so I really like the idea of a full lockout for road use. My fork has full lockout cap ... Read More »

    Looking for tire advice. (mostly Conti MK 2.2 vs 2.4)

(Non-tubless, non hot chili (i think its called the sport compound...vs the race sport, protection or performance) Anyway, I now run the Schwalbe front and MK rear tu ... Read More »

    Anyone own/ridden the 2015 Trance Advanced 2?

    Looking to get a new 140mm bike, and the Trance Advanced 2 is looking like the best candidate at the moment. I have test ridden the alloy 2015 Trance 2, but not the Adv version, and just wondering if anyone has actually ridden it, and how it compares with the alloy version? Worth the extra cash?Read More »
