I'm not about to give up my 2005 Kona Kula; it's everything I want in a pure XC thoroughbred. Light, fast, tight!
I don't have a ton of $$$ either ... but ...my LBS has a 2004 Kona Stinky at winter clearance and I'd love to get something to take along with my Kula that will let me get some big air and heavy hits. They want $1400 but I'll bet I can get it for around $1250. It's been test ridden a little, not much. A little dusty, that's about it. Should I try and put the deal together or can I get a better mate for my Kula in a different bike? (all better recommendations welcome)
