Did someone say on here the Kik will get a full 4" and the Dawg full 5"?
I just got an 04 Kik Deluxe. Like it a lot, but, yeah would like some more travel for my riding style.

I was going to just get an entry level Kona DJ HT, but maybe I'll wait for that 5" Dawg.

For XC long rides and racing, would 4" be that much better than the curent Kik with what, 3.5" is it?

I dont' think i'm going to sell and buy again just for another one half inch, but man, I would like 4" on a kik! :cool:

Whats with the cabelstops on top of the downtube ?
All the Kikapus in that pics has them.
Maybe for a remote lockout/control for the rearshock ?
any other ideas

Cheers

I'd rather not have them. I don't need a remote lockout with the propedal shocks but whatever, it doesn't bug me that it 's there on my 04

KingKik

That is correct!
I think the way they strengthened the rear stays on the King Kikapu was by using the
stays from the Kik Deluxe. Other than that looks exactly the same
since the 04 Kikapus have 3.8" dont' they?

Anyway, I'm going for the 05 Dawg!

That nasty creme color is uuuggggllllyyyyyyyyyyyyy..................

I love my 04 Kikapu's paint- Silver, Black, and Blue Decals.
Agreed the creme color is nasty! I hate to shop for a bike based on fashion, but that color is steering me away from the Kik deluxe. I could not stand to look at that year after year.
