Kona Dew Series
With Kona you have three great options for your ride to work: The Dew, the Dr. Dew, and the Dew Deluxe.
These bikes feature some great component choices for foul weather riding and long-term durability. The riding position is really upright on these bikes too, so expect them to win you over on a test ride if your flexibility isn’t that great.
A Kona Dew model isn’t likely to be the lightest or flashiest option available, but they’re tough as nails, and people ride the heck out of these bikes for years and years. The next time you’re on a ferry run into Seattle take a look at the battered bikes leaning against the rails of the car deck. Bet you spot one of these.
To tell you the truth, we’ve been pretty sick of these bikes for a long time now.
For years Kona was the main bike line of our local competitor, Bainbridge Island Cycle. If we lost a new commuter bike sale to B.I. Cycle, the chances were pretty good that sooner or later we would see that rider out on a new kona Dew.
B.I. Cycle only sells Specialized branded bikes now (there may have been a bit of coercion, Specialized doesn’t play well with other bike companies), so they have no room for Kona.
Their loss is our gain. Today you can pick a Kona here at Classic Cycle.
