Steel is real

Kona just had a press launch for their 2008 line. I wasn’t there. But someone name Justin from Dirt Rag was. Read about it here:

Happy. Happy. Joy. Joy.

Jonny’s new bike is going to look a lot like this:

I am 100% down with lugged steel.

And I just gotta comment on the fact that the drops are pointing at the fucking seat. Turn ’em back a bit, will ya? Make ’em level or point ’em at the rear brake. What, some downhiller assclown threw this one together between airing up negative springs and polishing helmets?

At least the seat is level…

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. Lugged steel? what! you don’t want all the carbon, plastic retarded, glued, “integrated”, nonsense, garbage out there right now?
    you are so not hip

  2. For all those that checked the link, Dirt Rag forgot to mention that there will be a version for Jonny with a total of 4 seatstays, or Kona calls it, the “Bar Stool Rear Triangle”. It will suffer in the “vertical compliance” category, but will be prove impervious to the punishment inflicted off-season chicken fried steak binge eaters.

  3. why ride a rivendale when you could ride the lugged kona. Retro is the shit!
