Hey guys,

I wanted to know your opinion on my situation...

Ok, so....I've found a brand new '06 Kona Coiler Deluxe, which I am very interested in. Now first off, do you think this is a good bike? This is my first real mountain bike, and I plan to do pretty much everything with it, AM, FR, trails(not trials), so do you think the bike is worthy of the job?

Secondly, the bike is a small(15"), and I was wondering if you think it would fit me ok...? I'm about 5'10", 175 lbs, and with about a 30-31" inseam...So do you think it will work?

Last thing I can think of for now, is what do you think is a fair price to pay for the bike? I realize it's not that far out of the '06 season, but if you guys think I should get a certain deal, let me know!

Alright, well like I said, that's all I can think of for now, if I have any more questions I'll be sure to ask...

Thanks in advanced,
Scott.

the coiler would probably be a very good bike for the type of riding you will be doing. i would think that you would need a medium frame though and not a small. have you ridden the bike yet to see how it feels?

I would recommend a small for someone 5'6" or less. You definitely need to get a Medium. I'd put you on a Large before a Small. Anyway, it's a decent bike but since the size is way off, the good deal doesn't matter. You really need to get a bike that fits you.

Oh, good deals can be had anywhere and on almost any brand of bike if you take your time and do some research.

Get an Ibex

...just kidding. The bike looks like a good one, though I have no experience with it. What concerns me is the size. I think 15 is too small for you. Most of my friend's who are the same height and weight as you ride 17.5. Even though it may be a good deal I would say wait for another deal on a bike more your size.

Good luck
