Model/Year: 2017

Pros: KS dropper, push pull shifting, sweet purple metallic! HOLY WOWS! Hands down most fun 29er I've ever had. Everything you need, nothing you don't - It could only be better if it came with the post ride beer!

Recommendation: Get it.

Model/Year: Kona Honzo AL

Pros: - Awesome Geometry
- Great specs for the price
- Solid travel at 12Omm front fork

Cons: - Doesn't come with a quick release for seat post
- 34.9 seat post is hard to find parts for.

Recommendation: This 29er rolls really well over tough terrain and the geometry makes it feel aggressive.

Model/Year: 2016 Kona Honzo DL

Pros: - near perfect geometry
- exponentially increases smiles per mile
- fears no trail (XC, Trail, AM)
- spec'd with aggression in mind

Cons: - umm...no

Recommendation: The Kona Honzo DL is one of the most fun bikes I have ever ridden - not one thing jumps out at me other than the geometry delivers an intentionally progressive bike that slays trails of all types. It's a must have for any stable - and the aluminum version cuts nearly 40% of the weight found on the cromoly version (if weight scares you).

Pros: Looks great, rides greater, steel frame, BEAST

Cons: Well there is.....no cons

Recommendation: this bike has been through Hell and back...twice, and still shreds down the mountain like I just rolled it off the showroom floor, if you've got love for the hardtail this one will get you hard for all to tell.. She is a bad mamma jamma
