I recently came across the Kona Cinder Cone, and wonder if it would be worth to get it at @S$1000?
The colour coincidentally fits my bill (including the seat). However, I am relatively new to the gizmos of the specs available at: http://www.konaworld.com/shopping_ca...0&parentid=182
I wonder if I should change the Hayes hydraulic disc brakes, as apparently, the LBS rep acts like an impatient pro, and never relate when, why and how I should maintain such brakes. Some research prompts me that mechanical brakes require very frequent adjustments (i.e. every few weeks).
Also, should I change the rims (Sun rims) if I occasionally go down flights of stairs with four to five steps? The rims is double wall btw...
Looking for genuine advice on this bike, and whether or not I should upgrade anything upon purchase (as that LBS is really far for me to visit, when it comes to major upgrades in future.
Appreciate your advice, thanks.
PS: What about the crank - should I change to Shimano instead of Trussativ etc...
