I own one that I'm now selling. I like the bike, but I've switched to fixed gear for training and commuting. The large Kona's a bit small for me besides. It's a great commuter. The disk brakes are nice when it's wet -- reliable stoppage. I've fitted mine with fenders, an improved saddle, pump, bottle cages and it's a great ride. I would say that for a commuter, the disk brakes are worth the upcharge.
