    Kona stab deluxe. Nice.

    Yesterday I went to a DH bike park and rented a Kona Stab deluxe 2008 model.

    Wow! It was so nice! It did everything I hoped out of a DH bike.

    I am not exactly an expert, all I can say is that the bike rock gardens were gotten through and control was kept on the steepest gnarliest sections. I rode on their hardest run and the only weak link was my fingers and feet trying to cling on to the grips and pedals.

    I paid 9000 for 1 days rental, about $90.

    I am tempted to buy one of these bikes now, but I fear I won't go out to the mountain enough to justify it, so I guess I can keep on renting, and dreaming.

    I would love to down hill....
    (I bought the Kona dawg as more of an introduction into some light downhill/fr stuff) but.. to my dissapointment theres no downhilling or decent stuff around.

    Awesome though man, glad you had fun.

    Nothing to ride for DH? You're only a few hundred miles away from some of the best resorts in the world!

    ^^ I don't have the money, I don't have an international drivers license either, so I can't leave the borders of Germany.

    So the issue isn't that there isn't any good DH in a reasonable radius, it's that you can't get there.
