About this deal

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

This aluminium-framed Kona takes you through town with agility, comfort and composure for inner-city errands and urban adventures. Driven onwards by a 10-speed Shimano drivetrain with a wide-ranging 11-46-Tooth cassette, it gives you a gear for any urban excursion while the Tektro hydraulic disc brakes ensure you have ample stopping power and cornering control. Plus, it features a Kona cockpit and double alloy rims wrapped in WTB Horizon Comp tyres for comfortable and easy handling, this Dew Plus SE model looks great and rides superbly.

Comfortable, Versatile and Stylish Urban Bike

When riding your bike, you want a few simple things. Comfort, function, and control are at the top of the list, so we built the Dew Plus with all three in mind. The Dew Plus features a 10-speed drivetrain for smooth shifting and a broad gear range. Hydraulic disc brakes keep the bike in control in tricky conditions. With geometry that keeps the rider comfortable on rides long or short and a kickstand, it’s a great choice for commuters.

Built, Tuned and Ready to Ride

Rest assured that each bike is fully built and tuned by Wiggle's team of qualified bike mechanics to ensure your bike arrives in perfect condition. We supply all bikes with a set of plastic pedals, a pedal wrench and a multi-tool kit.

    How does this compare to say a Specialized Sirrus X 3.0?

    Kona benefits:
    - Kona is cheaper, Specialized is an additional 50% @ £750
    - Kona has a better 1x10 Deore groupset vs 1x9 Microshift

    Specialized benefits:
    - Specialized is 1kg lighter. 11.13kg vs 12.2kg for the Kona

    Equal:
    - Both have Tektro HD-R280 brakes. Although Kona recently updated their site saying they now come with Clarks M2 - maybe there is supply issues, will see what mine arrives with.

    Personal preference:
    Kona has a more upright position, Specialized a bit less
    Kona has 650b tyres vs 700c, basically Kona has a more comfy ride on and off road, Specialized is potentially a bit faster on road, but less comfortable.
    Kona is better at going up hills (lower 36T chainring) but Specialized has a faster top speed (40T chainring) - both have a 11-42T cassette.

    I'd say they are pretty similar so Kona wins based on the price difference.
    Unless some of the personal preferences or 1kg sway you the other way

    Unlikely because this is actually a good blke not like some of the cheaper ones you see on here.

    I was thinking of getting a bike for exercise - is this any good? Any recommendations if I'm on a budget of £500?
    Avatar
    This was posted a few weeks back. Quite a lot of comments on that thread.

    Any good for a beginner for ride London?

    Yes. This will be forgiving to ride, hard-wearing and easy to maintain. This is a great deal for a quality everyday bike. (edited)

    Will the plastic pedals they come with suffice, or would anyone recommend something else I can add to the Wiggle basket before I pull the trigger. Open to any other suggestions for a London commuter - I already have a Litelok in-mind.

    Note, I will mainly be a dry weather rider with sneakers for footwear. (edited)

    When I got mine it had metal pedals in the box

    I've had my eye on this since the first time it was posted a few weeks ago.
    Just pulled the trigger but bought it from Chain Reaction Cycles as you can get a tenner off with CLEAR2022 (every little helps!)

    One thing I've been hesitating on is the small 36T chainring. I've compared this ratio with my current bike (see here) and I'm pretty sure I'm going to spin out pretty quickly during some parts of my commute.
    I can't work out from the images if it's replaceable or if I'd have to replace the entire crank.

    Anyone more familiar with bikes know if I can just swap out the chainring for perhaps a 40T?

    You're not going to spin out. On that bike in top gear, at a very doable 90rpm, you will be doing 25mph. That speed is pretty hard to maintain on a carbon fibre road race bike on level smooth tarmac. You're not going to manage that for more than a few seconds on a bike like this unless you're going down a hill, in which case yuo can freewheel.

    Nice commuter for the money, good level of spec and frame, good discount.

    Mine arrived today, seemed well packaged although a couple of scratches on the forks underneath the protection so not from transit, but nothing too bad. Just needed to remove protection, attach bar to stem, add front wheel, saddle and pedals.

    First impressions, lovely colour and frame, not that light - but that was expected. It's a little smaller than I was expecting (size M). I had used Bike Insights to compare the frame with my old bike and that suggested the Kona was bigger in every aspect so some of the measurements must be wrong on the Kona or my current bike. It's only a few cm here and there, I think ideally I'd be somewhere between the Kona M and L anyway, so M is probably better for me since I can adjust things.

    Gears were not indexed at all! As soon as I pedalled away the chain immediately jumped up off the largest cog and got well and truly jammed between the back of the cassette and the spokes! Eventually managed to get it out and then shift down through the gears - none of which sat nicely. Then back up to the lowest gear and it jumped off again!
    Had a quick adjustment of the rear derailleur and it's working a lot better now.

    Took it for a spin and as expected the gearing is a bit weird, I felt like I was barely up to speed, but already needed a few extra gears. Then I tackled the steepest hill on my usual commute and got up with ease compared to my old bike (Scott Aspect 45 MTB) and had 3-4 gears lower gears to spare. So I think I will be looking for a new crankset (looks like the stock one is one piece annoyingly). Lovely smooth ride, feels very fast compared to my old bike.
    The Tektro brakes are a bit disappointing, seem a bit spongy, but will bed them in a bit more before final verdict.

    Big thumbs up for the bike.
    Big thumbs down for the mechanic at CRC who apparently indexed the gears and signed off on it! (edited)

    Does anyone have advice on what’s better between this and the Voodoo Marasa?halfords.com/cyc…wcB

    Edit: This would be used for a 2.2 mile commute over mostly flat cycle paths and the odd road (edited)

    The Masara looks fine in the pics but is a chunky bike in reality. Kona is nicer IMPO.

    Consider this:

    Anyone got recommendations for a good bike for commuting under 300? Ideally new or refurbished
    Avatar
    Have a look on gumtree. You should find somethig better for your cash than paying new at that price mark.

    Some real offers going out on Konas recently. I got their Shield model reduced to £830 with delivery from Merlin Cycles. Original RRP was £1300 or so. Absolutely smooth as butter commuter.
