First ride report of my 2003 Kona Stuff.

Ok, it got too cold last night to ride. So I put the first real ride off until today. I absolutely love this bike. Took it for an urban session, first thing I go off of I nearly endo it, the bike is only 30 pounds, but it is nose heavy, not complaining about it, will just have to adjust and get used to that. The saddle is too big for it's own good, that has to go. Other than that I'm quite pleased with it.

I find that too about Stuffs. Very nose heavy. I ended up compensating with a longer fork so I have to lift less

Did you ecpect anything less? Come on man, it's a Kona.

...first thing I go off of I nearly endo it,...
Should have just rolled out the landing with a wheel stand

You know Danka, I was looking at the pic of your bike, it looks a lot like my Jamis HT (my only bike that is not a Kona).

Kona, Dead right, My 94 Explosif is still going strong, and still rides like a dream, my saddles ok, but then it has a few years to get into shape
