I bought a 2009 Kona Dew FS a few years back, and it was destroyed when my bike rack broke on the highway a few months ago.
I'm kind of heartbroken, as that bike traveled around the world with me, and was my main form of transportation for more than three years. Kona doesn't make the Dew FS anymore, as far as I can tell, and doesn't seem to have an equivalent model.
So my first question is, are there any good places to find an old Dew FS? I've been looking on craigslist and ebay without success.
If not, can anyone recommend a good replacement?
I loved the Dew FS because it had a light frame, thin tires that let you go pretty quick on a road, but the tires were sturdy enough and the front suspension good enough that you could take it on rough terrain. The disc breaks were great, and it was comfortable for long rides.
It also allowed for a back rack, so I could load on some paniers as well.
Anyone know of a model that might be a good replacement?
