I've seen this on Kona's site, and can never really peg what it's all about. The Dew line is pretty much urban/off-road hybrids, and the Dew Drop seems to just throw drop bars and brifters on there.
I can't help but compare it to the Kona Jake because, like the Jake, it looks like a practical machine great for daily living. But the Dew Drop is clearly not a cyclocross bike: disk brakes and 37c tires are often outlawed, and the triple crank and having the cables routed under the top tube are not ideal for 'cross. But this gives me the impression that it's more of an all-purpose bike than any 'cross bike can hope to be because it looks to offer the most performance and practicality without being limited by racing regulations.
But I can't get a read on what the frame geometry is like. How does it feel to ride? Sportier than the Jakes? More relaxed? More/less comfortable? More/less upright? There are surprisingly few reviews when I google it, so I'm trying to draw whatever conclusion I can from the parts list. But that won't tell me nearly enough. No, I can't ride one to see, since there are none anywhere near me. I'm just more curious than anything else. Seems like a pretty cool bike. Any thoughts?
