Does anyone know why the Kona dealers won't sell the bikes online?
Every site i have seen had a message similar to this on it
"Kona bikes ltd would prefer us not to sell their products online"
This is annoying, im gradually making a definite decision on the new bike, but this is putting me off (if i order from US i can get the Kahuna Deluxe for 800GBP, but if i get it from a dealership in the UK it will cost around 1100GBP)
It stops illegal selling of products. There are a few companies that do this. It is just a fact of life
No Kona for me then
There is two kona dealers in ireland dubland and waterford, how far are they from you?
Just checked their web site, they state that there bikes will be available for on-line purchase in USA and Europe soon. You can try to give them a call and see what they say. I know it's a long shot but if you have your heart set on a Kona worth a shot.
Dubland lol, sorry, yea Dublin is completely the other end of Ireland and Waterford isnt that far really, there is a dealer in Belfast which i am going to see, just to see my choices and to find out about deals etc.
Its more about the fact that i won't have enough cash to pay for a dealership bike, which would run about 1000-1100, whilst i can get it for 800-850 online. Maybe to you guys this difference isn't valid, as you don't get the aftermarket support you would from your LBS. Given that, im only 16, i have currently have two jobs, but even then im really pushing the boat out to get the bike i would like.
To be honest i think the Giant XtC SE2 would suit me better, STOCK it weighs 24lbs, and its a hardtail, would suit my style better than my current dualie.
Thanks anyway for clearing this up and taking the time to reply see you all soon.
