I;ve never corresponded with Kona Joe - nor do I ever think I will have a complaint with Kona Bikes.

I got stuck with my first Kona in 1996 (a Cinder Cone) and I still ride it to this day...also got myself an '05 D deluxe without considering other brands because I love the way Kona seems to try to stick with what works rather than what seems trendy.

The only thing I have changed on the DD is the pedals. The only problem I have is an occasional chain jumping off and the wee little cog on the ash end skips. Probably cause I can't seem to keep the thing adjusted.

Any advice on this?

As for the Cinder Cone - I changed the bars stem and grips last month. It's running the stock pedals from the Dawg.

When your Dawg walks, it's a bad bad boy..if it isn;t able to do this stuff - it;s not the bike - it's the rider!

And I am not all that good. Honestly, I'm a beginner intermediate at best.

I'm speechless, AWSOME pics.
I couldn’t agree more......technique is not something you can buy at your local bike shop...... is earned with sweat, blood, guts and the occasional tear.
My Dawg has teached me a lot of things since last year. But the most important lesson is that I can ride wherever I feel like.

The simple fact remains, "admitted" by Kona that the spec sheet for the 05 Dawg is incorrect.

The big issue for me turned out to be incorrect bike size, my bad I should not trust sales people,I have a long leg but very short torso making the 18" FRAME A WRONG CHOICE.

I have now put that situation right and got the correct size.
