This brand used to be one of the best, looks like it has cheapened itself a little (purely going on the price of this bike), you used to pay about £700 for the cheapest bike they did at one time. Still lokos a decent spec for £200.

That's not true, I can remember buying my mrs the Kona Hahanna about 10-12yrs ago, it's RRP was £329. They've always done everything from entry level up to £4k downhill beasts.

That's the thing - it is still one of the best and this is a great price for what it is - an entry level bike. Spend £200 on this & if you want to sell it, you'll get £100 back. Can't do that at Halfords!

Best bike on here for ages, great value for £200, especially with the range of sizes.

im 5ft and would look at 13.5 to 14 inch, reckon 16 inch would be fine, but if you google bike sizes you should get what you need.

Depending on inside leg I would say either 14" or 16"

Kona are one of the best frame makers ,besides rocky mountain.

Bought one last year, chain broke after 5 miles - buy a good strong chain if buying this. Also components are exactly the same on raleigh I bought for £120 so not such a great deal really.

tempted - very tempted. Looking at this or the Specialized Hardrock ... at 300 quid a lot dearer but I'm thinking that this one is the ideal one for someone getting back into biking.

Personally I find the geometry of Kona's hardtails a lot comfier than Specialized and they're easier to chuck down the rough stuff. But of course everyone is different, a frame that suits someone else's riding style might be worse for the another person.

Surely leg length is more important than overall height???

Does anyone know if you can get this in a chain reaction store for the same price?

Heat. Excellent price for this bike. Kona make really good bikes. My son has the L'anai deluxe 2011, and I have a Kona Kula 2009, and are both really pleased with them. There are some other great prices there too, esp the Kona Blast 2011 (all sizes) for £400.
