I realize English isn't your primary language, but that's no excuse for using shorthand

Yes that is right.

So if you look up kona dealers on the website and you see a bike store that isn't listed then it won't sell Kona bikes.

Hey, If you're new to mountain biking, I suggest you get a frame that doesn't have rear suspension. The rigid frames are called Hardtails. There are such things as freeride hardtails, I'd suggest a Cowan or Stuff from Kona, P. series from Specialized or STP series from Giant.

Hardtails teach you how to ride the mountain and trails properly, as well as allowing you to jump with more snap, and let you perform urban stunts to impress a soon-to-be-gf . Just kidding, you don't get serious girlfriends that way (unless someone begs to differ). Anyways, dual suspension doesn't teach that as well, but it gives you the skill of learning to plow over things, which is harder than it looks in many cases, in my opinion.

However, hardtails are the learning bike, and they can be high performance as well, full suspensions aren't necessarily superiour to hardtails, it all depends on usage. If you're learning to freeride, I STRONGLY suggest using a hardtail. You get better parts, for the same price (since dual suspension frames are generally more expensive) and you get a GREAT learners bike, especially at 1700 USD, let alone 1000 USD.

Don't forget to ask for some free stuff, like a helmet or pump...etc.

Have Fun,
Hooligan.

Boorad, you are about the hundredth person to b.tch at Raiyn for doing that. Maybe if you keep trying, he'll eventually care, but I doubt it. There are rules in the forum "guidlines" against typing that way, he was letting the kid/guy know. I don't really think he was harsh in any way.

Hey stop being a jerk bruiser, you even spelt guide wrong in guidelines.

As for king, then if you want anything in the kona line for freeride, then I must say Coiler, or Coiler Dee-Lux. Those two are the only bikes in the price range, heck, the dee lux is too high. However, if you wait until the end of the biking season, you can get some nice discounts as they clear out the bikes.

Kona makes really nice bikes, although they maybe lacking in the drivetrain department, getting a much better drivetrain at the price kona offers their bikes for, is hard.

Patience will get you the bike you want.
*ghastly voice* you want the coooiiiilllllerrrrrrrr....orrr eeevvvveeennnn the deeeeeluxxxx!!!!! *end ghastly voice*

Ahem, I was just.....expressing myself.

You are not going to stop people from typing the way they do...you just look like a total nazi whenever you chime in with your worthless comments. So, sir, I suggest you take that Gestapo s.hit somewhere else...

I know I'm not the only one who feels this way
Aww isn't that cute the newbie's trying to pick a fight.
Bringing up the Nazi cliche too! How inventive!

Personal attacks aside:


AOL'ese is a hybrid of "1337" (read hacker language) and abbreviations devised by slow typists to keep up with real time chat sessions. It doesn't belong here where you have all the time you need to type out a understandable, intelligent looking response.

This forum is visited by THOUSANDS of people a day. Some are members, MOST of them are guests who are looking for someplace where they can ask a question and get an intelligent response. "I wud get dat b4 u 4get or ur gunna be srry thx" Is NOT an intelligent looking response no matter how correct the information (once translated) is.

You want others to respect your opinions? Type them so anyone can read them not just "ur homies" I don't expect perfect spelling and grammar. Hell half the time I ignore people who can't capitalize ( that irks me too).

Again:

This isn't a freaking text message that will be erased in 10 seconds. We will have people looking at these threads for YEARS down the road and therefore we need to provide information that is easily understood by even those with the barest undersatnding of English.

I hope this clarifies my postion for some of the newer people.

Have a nice day
