You just can't get Kona to honor warranty claims on it :D .

On another note, ya gotta love this quote from the description:

"Up front the burly Marzocchi MZ Comp handles the hits with 4" of plush coil sprung travel"

Burly?? WFT is "burly" about the MZ Comp? I guess calling it "noodly" wouldn't sell many Kikapus....

Just my ramblings as always.

Kona has agreements with dealers, that says they won't sell the bikes
over the internet. That is what you agree to when you become a Kona dealer.

Not being able to warranty something because you bought over the internet
is not worth $100 in savings, in my opinion.

But hopefully halin222's BURLY MZ COMP holds up so he doesn't have to worry
about any of that.

I didn't buy mine over the net. New Revolution Cycles is my local bike shop that I pass everyday on my commute to work. So, I paid $100 less AND have a full warranty and the support of what appears so far to be a very respectable LBS.

Also, I'm not the one that called that fork 'burly'. I'll ride it until it breaks, then I'll upgrade. It does have a slight squeak soemtimes though, which is a little irritating. Other than that , it rides great. but I'm not taking any multiple foot drops at my 225 lb weight either.

Tongue-in-cheek

My comment was tongue in cheek. I fully agree that the money savings is not worth the risk of buying a product that the manufacturer will not support. With that siad, it's a common occurrance, and something each individual buyer must assess for themselves.
