Finally got it.
Well its been about a week since I purchased my Kona Hoss and they got all the parts in and assembled it...here she is.
XT shifters, front/rear derailler
Black Fork w/ remote lockout (very nice)
Hayes 8 inch hyd brakes and beefy levers
flashy LED for the rear
cheapy seat bag with CO2 inflator and tube
Picked up a Giro xen helmet since it fit like a motorcycle helmet and just felt good
computer, hrm, riding shorts are in the mail...cant wait.
Rode around for about an hour tonite with a ****eating grin how smooth everything worked compared to my 13 year old trek (now my girlfreinds and still getting chain suck...) as well as how nice and smooth the front fork is.
I'm glad the non dee lux was sold out for the year and I got the Hoss and upgraded...much better color and now ive got a rig with better goodies.
Going for a first dirt ride tomorrow after work...
I drink your MILKSHAKE
When you get the the upgrade bug give me a yell. Looks good for just coming home

congrats on the bike, very nice!
but i never knew that the Kona Hoss came with XT components and Hydraulic brakes, did you upgrade them or are they standard?
I drink your MILKSHAKE
Those were upgraded due to the fact that the shop couldn't get him the Dee-Lux model

nice rig bro...now the upgrade bug will bite you and you'll end up changing everything out
I hope the upgrade bug doesnt bite too bad. Wheel set and cranks are the only thing I can think of that I may swap out later...
'f' the upgrade bug. You got a brand new bike. Give those parts some abuse for a couple of years.

Nice fork, I have the same one.
first trail ride today...only 7 miles but it rides so nice. Would have been a perfect ride if my girl didnt wad up in a rut and end up in the bushes...other then that it was perfect.
With my knee being rehabbed I found out quick that I cant stand up or my knee hyper extends but other then that I think this bike is going to be the best thing I can do for my torn ligaments as long as I dont get out of the saddle!
A big thanks to everyone who told me to get the Kona...
yeah man, congrats...what did they wind up charging for all that????
