Hi, NOW IAM REALLY CONFUSED. I HAVE DECIDED TO BUY A FOCUS KILLER BEE BECAUSE THE TEST DESCRIPTION SOUNDS LIKE IT IS JUST WHAT I WANT AND AT £850 THATS MY BUDGET. BUT NOW TODAY A LOCAL SHOP HAS FOUND ME A KONA KULA SUPREME 07 AND WILL DO IT FOR £870. DO I TAKE HIS HAND OF OR IS THIS FAULSE ECONOMY. THE KONA WAS £1,700. I WANT A GOOD ALL DAY BIKE WHICH IS GOOD ON UP HILLS ,MOST OF THE TIME AND WILL DO SINGLE TRACK TIRPS AS AND WHEN. I LIVE NEAR SOUTHDOWNS SO THIS WILL BE MY MAIN RIDING GROUND. ANY HELP PLEASE][/b]

  • Take his hand off after you've taken a test ride. Great frame, excellent fork and decent brakes. It's a hell of a saving on a superb bike.

  • O.K I WILL DO THAT,THANK YOU AND HAPPY NEW YEAR. ANY BODYELSE HAVE ANY ADVISE. I HAVE ALSO FOUND THAT HALFORDS ARE DOING SAME SORT OF DEAL ON THE KONA AND IT JUST MAKES ME WONDER WHY IT WAS £1700 IN FIRST PLACE[/b]

    it might just be the fact that its an 07 and they desperatly need the room for 08s, giving you the chance to save a bomb. hope you make the right choice! good luck

  • r u sure it is the supreme at halfords, cant see it on website- only the standard kula.

    where is your local shop - would love 1 at that price
  • Went back to shop today to sort it all outand its the deluex not the supreme.So looking at the spec iam going for thr focus killer bee,i tryed one at a deomo day and liked it. Thank you for all your help. The supreme and delux are on offer at bike hut in brighton £111.00 for the supreme and £835 for the delux.
