    Nice lookin' bike Shred, how light is it? I've never ridden a Kona, but a workmate has a Cinder Cone and is well happy with it except for the weight.

    She's no ballet dancer thats for sure, but it suits me as i was looking for something to do some trails on and hit the bmx park and not need to worry.

    Last years Hoss came in at about 32lbs so it'll be around that.

    nice bike.... those things are...um, built to last....

    but it will ride great and take a regualr pounding on the trails...

  • The Hoss has undergone some upgrades recently.

    Set of Reba team dual airs
    Front wheel, hope pro 2 with an alex rim
    Set of Kore skewers to hold it all together

    New saddle, bars and a set of matching wheels in the pipeline.
