I'm interested in how comfortable it is to ride as I've never founda Kona that fits me and I know you're tall, too. That saddle is awfully high up and the handlebars low down. Can you ride it for any length of time without neck or wrist ache?

Ally,
cheers mate! :lol:

Orange71,
it's a sort of get-used-to-it thing I suppose. Granted the stem's low but BLOODY HELL what an aggressive ride!

Cheers dude! Blame Anthony and CCE on this forum! Seriously though, they've been a great help in me finding my own " perfect " Kona, cheers lads!
It weighs 23 and 3/4lbs!! Plus at some time I want to put a Middleburn Duo on it. There though is where the weight saving will stop.
