"Bombproof hardtail from Canada"

Buy this bike for probalby the best do it all hardtal frame at this price point. While it is a little bit heavy for a proper cross country hardtail it more than makes up for this with its versatility. The frame is beatifully stiff and tracks well through the corners while still giving just enough comfort from the taut back end, and frame forks and wheels are even strong enough to do a bit of jumping and north shore. The forks are not the best, neither ar the brakes or the cranks, but the ride more than makes up for all of that.
Kona have managed to make the handling agile and yet stable with good stand over clearance. Add to that good Canadian build quality with components that are built to last and good mud clearance and you cannot go wrong.
