Mark and Chipps ride bikes, try on sunnys and get all excited about half a bash ring and thixotropic jelly.
It’s the Kona Dawg Deluxe and for 2010 it comes with a few tweaks that have resulted in a much stiffer frame. Firstly the headtube is now tapered. The downtube is hydroformed and much stiffer. The main rocker is now super stiff magnesium too. So, overall, it’s er.. a lot stiffer than before and a tad slacker, which makes it a great all day, general workhorse of a bike. Pretty good for most UK riding we reckon.
