Here’s a warning to internet users about Kona Mountain Bikes. I returned my bike after find a manufacturer’s defect on the frame weld. A second frame was sent (which took 4 weeks to get me). I was CHARGED $50 for reassembly of the frame for a mistake that the manfacturer had made. I called the Kona rep (took me a week to get in touch with him) and when I finally did he was impolite and offered me a tshirt in place of the $50 charge.
This isn’t the sort of customer service that I’d expect to receive from a company as “reputable” as Kona. All I know is that when I get another bike it is NOT going to be a Kona. Has anyone heard of Infinity mountain bikes. Saw them for $500 Cdn with dual suspension. I don’t know if its any good.
I will be co-coaching the local Special Olympics bicycle team this spring and summer and a couple of the kids have mountain bikes and one is running a BMX bike and I am trying to decide what slicks to get them (all road riding and may have a little rain to deal with). I think the Continental Town & Country will be good for the mountain bikes but I have no idea what would serve best for the BMX bike.
