In all seriousness, they are one of the most popular rigid forks for a reason, but I think they're on the stiffer rather than comfier side of things...


I had a set of brand new disk only project 2s & to be honest I was appalled, they were boat anchor heavy (like 3/4lb more than advertised) & the spacing 109mm! if I'd paid anything for them I would have been bitterly dissapointed.
not intended as a kona rant, just an honest review.
