Expirience with the Kona Lava Dome

Kona Lava Dome Review Aabove all, the Kona Racebike just feels great. When it comes down to handling, Kona does not compromise. With its balanced handling style, the Racebike of Kona is ready for the majority of singletrails. The seating position does not manage to be too athletic, nor too upright. It´s moderate character is likely to suite the vast majority of bikers. Considering that in the range under 800 Euro, hardly any other manufacturer makes a better bike for the same specs of wheels. Nice! A nice warranty promises sustainability. With 25 years warranty Kona sets the bar high!
