Kona’s at BumsOnTheSaddle

Rohan Kini Uncategorized



The Konas have arrived !

While we love our Treks, we try hard to ensure we peddle bicycling, rather than a bicycle or a brand.

Its THE reason why BumsOnTheSaddle was started a couple of years back. Having all the best brands in the country under one roof makes life so much easier for the biker. Throw in some kick-ass service, very nice people and a very non-commercial dont-push-bikes-down-your-throat environment, and you have one of the best bike stores in the Country !

Since these were some of the first few Kona to get off the shelves, there was no time to do a proper technical review [ folks bought em even before we had a chance to ride em :( ]

Somethings that really stood out



Attention to detailevery bike comes with a small vial of paint, to touch up incase the bike gets scratched. Sweeeet



Paintjobreally nice paint job I must say

The bike also came in a really cool funky looking cardboard box ! Very very artistic.

We opened just the Smoke and the Dew – and both seemed to be really nice bikes. Decent components and a really smooth ride.

For more info (until we update the Konas on the BumsOnTheSaddle site)

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT CYCLING
I love riding my bike. Whether it’s a simple commute, a high-intensity road race, a jaw-grinding brevet, fixie rides thru packed Indian city or a kick-ass technical single track – I love it all. Apart from riding bicycles, I love being all geeky and know everything there is to know about bicycles, technology, bike fit, and service.

I started BUMSONTHESADDLE to share this passion for cycling.

DISCIPLINE: Partial towards MOUNTAIN BIKING but love it all
CURRENT BIKE(S): Specialized Rockhopper, Specialized Tarmac, Pure Cycles Original
DREAM BIKE: S-Works Epic HT & S-Work Roubaix
