My New Mountain Bike

As my old mountain bike was nearly 12 years old i decided it was time to get a new one so i started searching possible bikes to get and decided that the Kona Hoss would be high up the list. Checking ebay yesterday i found a new 2009 model that had never been used with a very reasonable buy it now so decided to buy it. I'm stoked to have got it because it is the perfect frame for a heavier rider and a great base frame to start upgrading the components that came with the bike over the coming year. The spec of the bike is:-

Frame: Kona Clump 7005 Aluminium
Fork: Marzocchi Dirt Jumper 2 100mm travel
Gears: Shimano Deore front and Shimano XT Shadow rear derailleurs
Shifters: Shimano Deore trigger shifters
Chainset: FSA Alpha Drive ISIS cranks 44/32/22
Brakes: Hayes Stroker Trail Hydraulic V6
Wheels: Sun Black Eye rims built on KK Disc front and Shimano M525 disc rear hubs
Tyres: Maxxis Ignitor 26 x 2.35
Handlebars: FSA XC280B oversize Riser
Stem: FSA oversize 190LX
Saddle: WTB Speed V Sport SE
