The obligatory dirty bike post.

The bike has been seen before, but now it is shown dirty.

Nice bike: historical tidbit

Kona was the first bike company to popularize the compact frame design that became a standard in mountain bikes and now found on Giant TCR's and other road bikes in the pro peloton.

Ok, let's see if I can figure out how to post a pic....

I know this is cheating a bit, but it is a "bike" and it is "dirty". This pic was taken on a cold day and all the dirt you see is frozen to the bike...
