    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.

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

    The bike came with a set of Schwalbe Rocket Rons (29x2.25), I sliced a rear sidewall and replaced it with a Conti Mountian King 2.2. (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 »

    ENVE AM and Conti Trail King 2.2 29

    Anyone running this combo? If so, how is it performing? I'm ripping the beads during hard cornering. Protection TR tires set up tubeless on Enve AM 29 on a Tallboy LTC. Been through 3 tires now. None have lasted more than a few days. Bead tears from casing during high speed bermed cor ... Read More »

    2.35 maxxis ikon or 2.2 for front tire on hard tail

    I have a 29er hardtail. I need to replace my front tire and I currently run the Maxxis Ikon front and rear. Would it be worth it to replace my 2.2 front tire with a 2.35. Looking mainly for more comfort on the front end. That being said I do not know if it would be worth it to take the weight penalt ... Read More »

    Framed Minnesota 2.0

    Picked the bike up yesterday. Went by their shop just to look at the bikes. They had an orange and white 2.0 in my size that had been returned because it didn't fit the person who mail ordered it. Couple hundred dollars off the already great price, so I walked out the door with it. This is my fi ... Read More »
