    Kona Caldera

    What do you guys think of this bike? I just bought a 07 Trek 4500 a couple months ago but when I saw this Kona I fell in love. Is it a good bike? Thanks for any help.

    Ask Siu Blue Wind. She has a Caldera, a Kona Dawg Deluxe and some other cool stuff.

    Meh, to each his own. I HATE 90% of Norcos, yet I know they're a good company. But that's just me.

    I don't know. But blondes do ride guys who ride Konas. At least, that's what I hear.

    I think the OP should take this very interesting bit of information to heart as I think it just made it a perfect excuse to dump the Trek. Oh, and make sure to get the Kona in green.

    Yes, green is a must. Ladies dig the green.
