Kona Coilair Deluxe Full Suspension Mountain Bike Description

Our overachiever air sprung Enduro/Freeride pedaler, the Coilair Deluxe features all the bells and whistles that are “DELUXE” in 2008. 165mm up front and a Fox RP2 in the rear makes this design our most popular of air sprung Enduro/Freeride pedal power.

A. Imagine a mid-to-long travel bike that's designed to excel when it's climbing or pedaling really hard: 6 inches of relatively stiff, linear rear travel with steeper head and seat angles and raised seat height.

B. Now imagine that same bike when it's going downwards, braking or hitting big bumps. Not ideal, right? Well imagine that same bike has the ability to change its rear travel to be more progressive, with softer suspension in the initial stages of travel. Not only that, imagine the travel on this bike could grow from 6-inches to 7.4-inches, while its geometry changed to slacker head and seat angles, with an improved wheel path.

HIGHLIGHTS:Fox 36 Float RC2 165mm Travel Fork • RaceFace Evolve XC X-Type Crank/BB • Shimano XT/SLX Drivetrain • Mavic Crossline Wheelset • Shimano SLX Hydraulic Disc Brakes

i wish people would stop making 'jokes 'about how expensive good bikes are. it's really old. i don't go into car threads and laugh at those looking at £20,000 cars or whatever is a mid-priced car.
this is a reasonable price, it was overpriced at RRP but this is good deal.
want a quick way to check that? the value of the parts if sold separately is probably higher than £1700..

i personally find Kona bikes kinda ugly but that's just a visual thing, never ridden one.

Whoa an expensive bike! Lets steal it!

If you ask me, you'll probably just keep going paranoid that something happens to it instead of enjoying your 1700 pound purchase. Of course, if you don't, then that's alright.

People don't buy bikes like this to ride to the shops or chain to the railings out side work....a specialist bike like this is use for the sport of mountain biking.

Ouch.

Well, when I was a kid, I got a Raleigh bike which I think was about £200. Never fell to bits, strangely enough, in spite taking quite a battering.

To be honest, with these, I don't really understand the huge price. When I look at Ferrari, I can see why they cost 10x more than a Ford as soon as I look at it. I just don't get why these cost 10x more than a Raleigh, yet look pretty much identical, at least on casual inspection.

I'd genuinely love someone to explain why they're so much better and worth the huge price tag. Ultra light? Last forever?

Try some camouflage, they might not keep seeing you coming each time. ;)

I am interested in getting an answer to this question myself. From someone who actually knows their bikes, rather then from someone guessing.

Hi Barron....did you watch my vid above.

Normal bike wheels would just buckle or completely fail to bits on some of those landings. on the tight u-bend turns the forks are keeping the front wheel on the track rather than loosing grip and the bike flying out from under the rider, they also have enough travel to soak up the largest of rocks rather than sending the rider over the handle bars. Think MotoX bike.

They are usually riden buy adualt and not kids so they are dealing with much heavier riders, so much more strain is put on the parts than your old Raleigh was designed for.

Check out that Youtube video a few posts back, then come back and ask why a cheap £200 bike would fall apart?

A. Light and strong - obviously you don't want your bike to buckle if you come down with all your weight on it, but at the same time you want it light, so the 50km your riding is more enjoyable, i.e. if you have a bike made of a heavy metal, its going to take more energy getting up the hills.

B. Suspension - Again you want all the small bumps to be absorbed. with ease, rather than each bump slowing you down. Have you ever tried riding into a pot hole on a road bike with no suspension? (just encase you haven't) it throws you off, thats one pot hole, the trails that these bikes are meant to do are riddled with pot holes and jumps and bumps. Obviously better suspension deals with absorbing the shock better.

I think people should really look at the types of trails that these bikes are made to withstand before passing judgment on why they are so expensive.

Ive got a reasonably expensive bike about £700 and i came back from Cannock chase this weekend and my hands and arms are aching so much, just because my bike wasn't up to the more technical/rough bits.

Ha, if you shouted at me to get out of the way coming along on your snazzy bike with your gloves and yellow wrap around glasses you'd get clothes-lined!!

Love a good bike disscussion, never realised the old bicycle could be quite so inflammatory until I started using HUKD!!

"Economies of scale"

If you make something in small numbers the unit cost will be higher. You have to spread the Research and development (which will be very high) across a small number of sales. The material costs are also higher, using expensive materials such as carbon fibre and expensive manufacturing processes. Also due to the high performance nature of the product it is likely to have a high number of units not passing quality control.
#28
I still have my Raleigh mountain bike for 10 years ago too - which still serves as a commuter, however I am also really into my mountain biking. I have two bikes, one for cross country and one for downhill.

Downhill bikes are more expensive as they need high performance components ie Suspension with lots of travel (8inch front and back is common these days), and a really durable frame and components which can take a beating. Also hydraulic disc brakes to allow you to stop on steep slopes. Alot of these components are probably more akin to a motocross bike.

Cross country frames need to be lightweight, to go uphill, but also durable to take steep descents, so often higher grade aluminiums or carbon fibre used for the frame and other lightweight materials for the components - and still the requirement for descent suspension and brakes.

Hope this helps!

Let's go with a more reasonable comparison, say, a BMW compared to a Daewoo (RIP).

Both cars use the same equipment to work; engine, wheels, gearbox, tyres, suspension etc. Looking at them, they are broadly similar in appearance; metal, paint, windscreen, seats etc.

You know a Ferrari is better than a Ford for performance, because it's widely accepted as being true. Same for the BMW and Daewoo - the BMW is always regarded as better to the masses (and I would probably agree), as they use better parts.

Brakes on a car, or not just any old brakes. Same for engines, tyres, suspension setups, gearboxes and the like. A BMW is more likely geared to performance, than say, the Daewoo.

With bikes, it's a similar concept. Same core requirements to work, but a gulf in the difference in quality and purpose of said bike.

Aluminium frame versus steel frame/low grade (soft) aluminium frame. Linear pull brakes versus hydraulic discs. Precision alloy rims versus steel. Sealed bottom bracket versus replaceable. Precision super light lock-out forks with travel, versus steel solid forks with no travel. You could go on really!

It's dead easy to simply assure you one is better than the other (cars too), but the only way to believe it, is to experience it yourself. That said, most people who drive a car, just go from A to B. Same with bikes really.

Take a bike off-road as intended and you'll see why a £100 Halfords special will be useless and something like this will be a lot safer and more enjoyable.

You really don't NEED to spend anything like 1.7k to be able to enjoy trail riding

Funnily enough on a recent trip out on my sub £100 purchase (2nd hand bike built in early 90's) managed to stay in one piece while my mate who had 4 or 5 weeks ago spent over 2k was not so lucky (his frame snapped)

With respect, Deadpan, this isn't a trail bike we're discussing here.

Not my thing - the guy with the red flag walks in front when we cycle, but that video is amazing.

Bikes / cars / computers - you pays yer money and makes yer choice.

But a deal's a deal whether it is saving 10p on a chocolate bar or £1300 on a bike.
#33
Just out of interest (maybe to those who are asking what makes a good MTB cost so much) the 2010 model of the Fox fork on this bike has an RRP of £809.99, so it's not difficult to see how the price stacks up.

Anyone who's done some half-serious All Mountain / Enduro riding will know the benefit of having decent suspension. I'm not saying a bike without an £800 fork is rubbish, but there is a big difference between a sub-£200 and a £500+ fork which becomes very apparent when you're riding hard.

Sorry to hear that.

i think people like a good old trolling session when some high end equipment comes up, that's all.

if spending £1500 on something that makes being active more enjoyable and will pay you back in enjoyment and exercise over the next 2 years then bring it on.

if you're even mildly interested as to all the fuss then hire yourself a decent bike (£25-50 a day) and get down to a trail near you.

I'm always amazing at how easily the braindead **** off what other people spend on their hobbies. The sort of people who think nothing of maxing out credit cards on brainless consumer products or buying an £18k car on credit deride others for buying high end bikes, cameras, guitars, etc.

Anything that's not a passive entertainment gadget like an ipod seems to get slagged off on here if it's also high end.
