Next up on the wall of cool is Kona's mid range offering, the Lavadome. If you need a time period let's say early-mid 90s.

So, is the bike that many of us started out on 'cool' or can something that's the Ford Focus of the bike world never be cool? You decide 8)

As ever here are a few pictures

A good bike yes, but not a cool one.

I do like the frame shape and geometry of these Konas, but I just don't understand why they are so much cooler than their peers. And because everybody rates them so highly and I fail to see quite why that is, I think I shall say Good, but not necessarily overly cool. :?
