Rebuilding Kona Dew Deluxe

Hi all,

My beloved Kona Dew Deluxe was stolen last week. I found it to be a great bike, tough, fast, comfortable, secure, I liked the disc brakes on it too. Since then I've had the idea to try and build a bike like it, only with higher quality components.

I don't think that you can buy the Kona Dew Deluxe frame seperately? If not, can someone recommend a frame for a hybrid that will accept disc brakes and comes in size 56cm.

That sucks.

Kona used to sell the Sutra as a frameset. It's steel,but will do what you want. There's also Surly's Karate Monkey,and Salsa makes a disc cross frame. Don't know of any company that makes hybrid frames;just road,touring,cross,and MTB. But you can build them any way you want.
