Board one day i went on-line and looked at Kona's web site. To my :shock: they have a nerve as they are still using the 90's names on new bikes. And on one bike they happly say its been made for 19 yrs :shock: I like hell it has. No way are they the same bikes not even close :twisted: :evil:

I shed a small tear this morning when I farted on the bus.

I like how the new Stumpy (there ya go Ed!) is now a full susser (and again!). Apart from the new 'old' one of course - which is just bloody stupid. Go to the trouble of remoulding tyres and then stick a bog standard modern xt drivechain on it rather than re-doing the Spesh (wahey!) cranks etc...
