  1. What Bike to Buy
    Hi all, so this year I've tried few forest trails on my old full rigid Marin MTB. So far, I was mainly riding a roadbike for last few years, but after trying those trails, every road ride seems so boring. That is why I decided to purchase a new MTB. After quite some time of exploring I'm pretty...
  2. Kona
    Has anybody heard anything about the Process bikes? I’m guess not much will change other than colours, which I hope is an upgrade from the 2021s which I thought were a bit lame.
  3. Beginner's Corner
    Hey all, I’m looking to buy my first mid travel FS bike. I’m in a weird situation where I have an order already placed on a 2021 Stumpjumper Alloy Comp ($3600 usd) but yesterday I found a 2021 Kona Process 134 $2500usd) for $1000 cheaper and still has decent entry level components. (Shimano...

    I am going to try to convert my 2018 Honzo ST to single speed as an experiment, I have everything I need to do it but I have not really messed with the sliding dropouts in the past so I want to make sure I get it right. I run them slammed forward right now. Once I convert everything, I just use...
  5. Beginner's Corner
    Hi All 😁 I previously did a post about this trying to source a suitable fork for my Kona Fire Mountain , knowing what i do now i wouldn't have purchased the bike but moving on the situation is that my bike is currently fitted with Suntour XCR 32 LO-R Coil Spring 100mm which when on the local...
  6. Beginner's Corner
    Hi All ? I have recently purchased a Kona Fire Mountain 2021 , I am happy with the bike but the forks are very stiff , I feel even over the local trails I'm holding a jackhammer and the forks absorb very little shock ?, I am looking to upgrade rather quickly but unsure what to upgrade to or...
  7. Kona
    I'm in the market for a new rig, and I like the look (and the price, holy cow) of the newest 153 29. I've ridden the last generation, and it was outstanding, (if a little compact-feeling for my preferences) but they changed it up for 2021 and for whatever reason, there are almost NO reviews or...
  8. Vintage, Retro, Classic
    Hey folks I’m doing a refurb of an old Kona Coiler I have for a friends son to ride and I’m thinking about whether to / how to do a 1x10/11 set up on it. It has a shimano hub so no problem there and getting a narrow wide chain ring won’t be an issue either. the problem I have is the hanger...

  10. Downhill - Freeride
    Hey guys, I have just got a 15,5" (M) Kona Scrap which I use for beginner freeriding and trail riding. My issue is that I feel that the 586mm horizontal TT is a little long for me with a 60 mm stem. Is it only that I'm still not used to the bike or I should have opted for size S(horizontal TT...

    Rumors have been swirling for months that Kona has been developing a carbon Process. During the EWS race last weekend, Mtbr caught our first glimpse of the bike in the Whistler lift lines and on the track. Kona wouldn't respond to questions regarding the new frame. Kona wouldn't comment on...

    When we at Mtbr describe bikes, we often try to box them up in neat categories such as "trail" or "enduro." It's an easy way to describe how a bike may ride, but those terms are black and white. Actually riding bikes is a far more nuanced affair. Check out the Mtbr First Ride Review of the...

    Slacker angles and stock spec dropper posts make the new Scott Spark a true do-it-all mountain bike. Winner: Scott Spark Mtbr's 2016 cross-country bike of the year is really two bikes. Or three if you count the plus version. Or five if you account for 27.5 and 29er offerings. But for the...

    Kona operates out of two main offices, but has employees working remotely all over the world. Kona Bikes was founded in 1988 by Dan Gerhard and Jacob Heilbron. Since the early days, they've been headquartered in a small nondescript office in an industrial quarter of Vancouver, British Columbia...

    The Kona Operator Supreme is essentially the same build used by the bike maker's top-tier sponsored riders. Connor Fearon and Graham Agassiz are at the top of their respective disciplines but have very different needs. One is a World Cup downhill racer who requires stability, while the other is...
  17. 27.5
    The Kona Hei Hei is a 140mm travel 27.5" trail bike with an XC pedigree. Modern mountain bikes like to blur boundaries. That's why we now have flat billed bros rocking short travel 29ers and XC racers climbing bulldozers - I mean enduro bikes. But it wasn't always this way. You used to pick a...
