    Don't buy their junk

    Pros
    Can't ride it

    Cons
    Crappy factory service. I called for a simple part and got the brush off. It was a new bike and broken in the box. Don't bother with a Company that doesn't stand behind their products

    Buy it for the looks keep it for the ride.

    Pros
    Rear and front suspension lockouts. So accelerates on flats well. Descends well with koans linkage suspension design. Kona so u know its gonna last forever.

    Cons
    Little heavy but base model has same frame as uber exp models so u can put lighter parts on it. Speaking of the base wtb speeddisc wheels have given me zero problems and set up tubeless super easy- strong bead,

    I just built up a 2011 Hei Hei 29 frame... and instantly decided it was the best damn bike I've ever had. Fits me like a glove, I can climb and pedal hard with no suspension bob, and it descends very predictably. I'm really happy with this frame design.

    Pros
    Weight
    Frame Design
    Geometry

    Kona did a good job walking the line between XC and all-mountain with the Hei Hei 2-9. This is a great bike for XC riders who like to spend all day in the saddle without feeling beat up or folks who don't like to slow down for short gnarly sections on the XC trail.

    Pros
    Lightweight and durable frame. Amazing attention to detail and solid component mix out of the gate. Frame geometry is perfect mix between XC race and AM dabbling.

    Cons
    The wheels and tires may not be quite up to all-mountain level riding, depending on your terrain and speed.
