I bloomin love riding this bike, its so chuckable. I'm thinking about some wider bars as the rocky ground round me means you get kicked off line very easily and my arms/neck hurt quite quickly.

Thinking of some Salsa Pro-moto bars, as they are flat and wide..... don't want to go to a riser bar. However I now know why people put modern kit on these Konas, they ride so well they almost deserve it.
