Let me guess, and every Trek looks like a million dollars.
Don't knock them until you try one, never judge a bike by appearance, my bike which happens to be a Kona Stuff. Looks like the creature from the black lagoon but it has taken every shot I have given it. It broke me before I broke it. Is it the new lettering and all? I doubt that is the permanent lettering. Kona is not known for using shiny paint. Bikes don't need to be pretty, they have to be functional.
With the other post, Kona always introduces their freeride/dh bikes before their xc line up. Same with Rocky Mountain, Kona is more known for their freeride/dh bikes.
I' not a fan of the new lettering, but I am sure that they will be great bikes.
