Kona Hoss Deluxe

Everything about July’s bike of the month is cool. The 2006 Kona Hoss Deluxe is built on a bombproof aluminum frame that will suit either a heavy rider or harder-than-average handling. Its key components include a 9-speed Shimano drivetrain, Hayes Hydraulic HFX-9 XC disc brakes, Marzocchi Dirt Jam Pro fork with 100mm travel, and upgraded WTB Laserd Disc XC rims. At $325, it’s a fantastic hardtail/disc trail bike on a budget. This 16″ model will fit a rider 5’2″-5’6″.
