Does anybody ride a Kona road bike, i.e., Zing, Zing Deluxe, etc.? If so, what are your thoughts?

I'm looking to get into road biking and would like to stay loyal to the Kona brand, but its difficult to find ride reports on these bikes. I sampled some other brands recently but am not able to get on a Kona roadie without traveling great distances or purchasing one, sight and ride unseen.

Thanks in advance.

Cool, thanks for the info. It looks like Kona's not putting out a new Zing for 2007, unless my computer is cutting out sections of the new bike postings on konaworld.com. It seems the low model will be the Zing Deluxe, which looks mighty fine online.

Thanks everybody for the input but I ultimately decided to go with another brand.

I ordered a Felt F75 on Saturday but just found out this morning that the manufacturer was out of stock in my size, so they automatically upgraded me to the Felt F65 at the same price! And I thought the F75 was already a good deal at that price.

I'm pretty stoked. Still looking forward to seeing the 2007 Kona road line (and of course the much anticipated mtb line) in person.
