Review of "Kona Explosif"
This is one of my favourite bikes. It is the perfect bike to upgrade, but it is also billiant with original parts. Thats what is so good I think- every one i've seen has been modified differently- some people have put on suspension, others disc-brakes. You don't have to upgrade this bike to make it good though. I've had this bike for 1 month now as new and all the parts are great. I especially like the bombproof frame, the grippy tyres, the brilliant V-brakes, the great pedals, the cranks and the cool handle bars (the list goes on). The minor weaknesses such as the tyre clearance only matter really to an absolute perfectionist. For normal people like me, there is nothing wrong with it.
May I just say that this bike looks alot better than in magazines- the bike looks way better in real life.
If you want a dirt/street/just about anything bike than this is for you, and if you want a more expensive bike, just buy this and upgrade it!
And finally, lots of people say this bike is heavy, but it's by far the lightest steel bike i've ever seen. If you want it any lighter than you have to sacrifice the strength and get aluminium.
This bike gets an 99% rating (tyre clearance, strong rims and chap-proof paint would give it the extra 1%)
Best hardtail bike in it's range. so if you are unsure on getting a new longlasting hardtail bike this is your best bet.
