    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.

    Conti 2.4 vs 2.2, Minion DHF?

    Hi. After going nuts reading all king of reviews and tread about tire I would like some suggestion... My bike is Trek Fuel ex 8 with Bontrager Race Disc Tubless wheels. I think i'm gonna make a move and buy Conti Trail King UST 2.2 as a back tire. Up front, I wonder if Trail King 2.2 would be ok or ... Read More »

    Ikon (2.2 & 2.35 EXO) alternate to RaRa/NoNi (2.1/2.25 EVO)

    This is for 26" version, Utah, DRY trail, some rocky sections, areas of buff turns with some small loose gravel (about 1 cm or less in size). The 26x2.2 Ikon (rear) is a good substitute for the 2.1 RaRa (rear). I wouldn't use it on the front. About the same size and grip as the 2.1 RaRa, the tre ... Read More »

    Sette Razzo 29er Max Tire Width =/= 2.2"

    I thought this deserved a special thread since some people are probably turned off by Sette listing the max tire width as 29 x 2.2" on the carbon 29er Razzo. I installed Geax Gato tires on a Stans Arch EX rim and there is PLENTY of clearance. Given the clearance, I could easily mount a 2.4" tire o ... Read More »
