Ride 2011 11 28

Some days this time of year it is cold and rainy, all you really want to do is head south to ride in places like Mexico or the desert in the southern states. Then the sun comes out and even a cold and clear 2 Celsius is an awesome day for a ride.
Work day today however we still got out for a little rip.

Ride 2011 11 18 Kona Saturi

Workin at the Cove bike shop has its privileges, Dick From Kona dropped by A couple of their new 29er Full Suspension Bikes the "Saturi"for us to try. We rode 2 days, yesterday on Coconut A trail we ride all the time, then today we rode Richard Juryn Trail out of the shop. The first thing you notice is the bigger wheels feel like they roll better. The Bike climbed well, I had not rode the sram 2x 10 yet so it would take a few rides to get used to the gearing. In the trail the bike responded well in the corners it had a very nice feel, was very stable on the descents rolling over roots in very wet conditions. On our more techy trails it rolled along nicely In my opinion this bike will sell, for XC on the shore which is All Mountain in most places. I have rode A few other 29er's this last year at interbike and this bike felt like the better product (IMO). The price point is $3400.00 this bike is very well spec'd. I am not ready to give up my Hustler any time soon, however if I was starting out or looking to get into XC this would be a very good buy, kona has A lifetime warranty on their frames.

A few weeks back Chaz and I rode with Stephan From Germany he is the designer of this bike, (good Job Bud)
