4 Reviews - 2017 Honzo CR Trail Carbon

"Full squish bikes may get all the attention these days, but nothing compares to riding a hardtail on the trail, and the Honzo CR Trail is perhaps the one bike that can steal the limelight. Its aggressive stance, nimble-handling carbon frame and mischievous attitude are characteristics that were born on Pacific Northwest trails ... "

Review: Kona Dew

Review: Kona Dew
This is the Kona Dew which is one of our best selling entry level bikes simply because it is so versatile. I call this the urban blaster. You can cruise with the family. You can go out for a fitness ride. People will use it as a inter-city commuter. You can't kill this bike and yet it is comfortable. It is laid out similar to a mountain bike in the sense it is sporty but it is also comfortable. You can always change where the handlebars are. We do that for most people. But the price-point, these...

Why Paul likes the Kona Hei Hei

Why Paul likes the Kona Hei Hei
One of the best all-round bikes, 29er or not, for the trails of southern Ontario. Paul's been riding Kona and Specialized for 2 decades, and this is one of his favorites!From Kona's website: "Known for its strong and smooth riding characteristics, the bike features a component package that's race-ready, but not overpriced, with 100mm of perfectly tuned suspension that's quick, efficient and surprisingly plush. With a new ultra stiff 142x12 rear axle, this bike is ready to rule."Highlights: 3 Tim...

The 29er KONA Hei Hei

The 29er KONA Hei Hei
As I wrote earlier in the year, I am sold on the 29ers. As a 40+ year old I can now keep up to my 11 year old while cycling the trails in Waterdown, especially some of the rock beds.

Now with that said, I have renewed confidence in riding the trails with a 29er. As I listen and read and seek to stay informed about trends etc, I came across this mountain biking video produc...
