Over 2k USD?!? No way. They only retail for like 1600.

It is a great bike though. Light and pedal friendly enough for those epic rides. Burliness and quality of travel is the same as the Stinky.

Just noticed you were in Sweden. If that's 2000 some Kronor, then that's a hell of a deal. But you guys on the other side of the pond do get different pricing than us.

hold up. that price includes shiping from UK to sweden. 2 122.72 equals 15K in swedish kronor, and, yes, due to taxes through the roof we get B*m-f*cked on a daily basis:madman:
so,ur saying this price, £1077 is unreasonable and a :nono: ?
in comparison a brand new 2007 coiler costs 30K:eekster: in swedish currency, that's like $ 4 245.44

a 3 year old used Kona out of any of the classifieds still goes for at least 70% of the price it was bought for.
