After many months of waiting for Kona to ship some bikes into Australia I finally have my 2007 JTS. I actually bought it alongside a mate at work who listened to all my justifications for using a crosser as a commuter and he bought the exact same bike. We have 2 JTS' sat next to each other in the office. He specced a Brooks saddle and Schwalbe tyres and I got a Rolls saddle and slick 32 tyres. Apart from that they are identical. I went for a weekend spin at a famous bike track here in Sydney and was surprised at just how easy it was to keep up with the full-on road bikes with 23 tyres etc. A great all round bike that can cut it as a commuter and keep up with the racers on the weekend. After reading this forum and taking time to make my decision on what bike to get I'm very happy I did. It's an awesome bike.
