Kona Dawg 06'

First mountain bike aku adalah Giant Yukon HT 8 speed. Inilah bike yg paling lama aku simpan. So far dah bersalin parts 2-3 kali, dari XC setup ke trailbike. Kemudian aku beli Kona Dawg, all mountain full suspension dari KONA (Kona panggil back country).

Kona DAWG ni adalah model ke-4 (terbawah) dlm siri DAWG. Ini model 06. Model asal guna hayes sole brake, deore drivetrain, full truvativ cockpit & tayar Nokian.Sekarang sudah upgrade banyak mengikut kesesuaian riding aku. Yukon & Scale dah jual, sebab aku decide taknak race tapi ride utk rekreasi & exersize.

Spesifikasi 08

Frame sizes : S(15")
Frame tubing : Kona Clump Light 7005 Butted Aluminum 5" Travel
Rear Shock : Fox Vanilla R Coil
Fork : Marzocchi All Mountain SL1. Best air fork. Plush. Adjust air ikut stail rider, cukup mudah & lasak.
Headset : Cane Creek S2 sealed bearing
Crankset : Truvativ Stylo 05' dual chainring 32/22T dgn MRP bashguard - dah guna crank ni 3 tahun.
Pedals : Atomlab Quick Step clipless DH pedal
Chain : Shimano DURA ACE dgn SRAM missing link - boleh buka & pasang dgn tangan sahaja
Cassette : Shimano Deore XT (11-34t, 9speed)
F/D : Shimano Deore XT

R/D : Shimano XT
Shifters : SRAM Rocket utk shimano RD
Handlebar : Truvativ XC bar OS
Stem : Truvativ XR 3D stem 70mm 31.8mm clamp diameter
Brakes : Shimano XT w/6" rear rotors (hayes) & 7" front (A-Z) - Trouble free hydraulic brake
Tires : Kenda Nevegal DTC 2.35 - Simply the best. Tahan lebih lama compare dgn yg ada stick-e rubber. Tapi climb tak sebaik yg ada stick-e
Rims : Atomlab Pimplite (White)
Saddle : SDG BelAir RL - My favourite all around saddle.
Seatpost : Thomson Elite 30.0 - Simply the best


Spesifikasi 06/07

Frame sizes : S(15")
Frame tubing : Kona Clump Light 7005 Butted Aluminum 5" Travel
Rear Shock : Fox Vanilla R Coil - ada rebound & preload adjustment sahaja. Best utk ride yg lebih aggresif.
Fork : RockShox Revelation 409 06' 130mm - takde u-turn. Best air fork. Good slow & hi speed compression. Adjust air ikut stail rider, cukup mudah & lasak.
Headset : Cane Creek S2 sealed bearing - antara sealed bearing headset yg murah dgn performance yg baik
Crankset : Truvativ Stylo 05' dual chainring 32/22T dgn MRP bashguard - dah guna crank ni 2 tahun lebih. Light & harga lebih murah compare dgn XT. Lasak, jump regularly 1-3ft. Bashguard simple, more FR look.
Pedals : Atomlab Quick Step clipless DH pedal - pernah guna Crankbrothers & SPD tapi this pedal is simply the best for my riding style. Easy to clip out, tapi cukup grip bila sprint.
Chain : Shimano DURA ACE dgn SRAM missing link - boleh buka & pasang dgn tangan sahaja
Cassette : Shimano Deore XT (11-34t, 9speed)
F/D : Shimano Deore XT

R/D : Shimano XT
Shifters : SRAM Rocket utk shimano RD - I love it. Thumb shifting so 2 jari blh concentrate pada braking dlm masa sama boleh shifting.
Handlebar : Truvativ Hussefelt 27" wide- lebih ringan berbanding Truvativ XC. FR bar. 27" wide for best technical handling
Stem : Truvativ XR 3D stem 70mm 31.8mm clamp diameter
Brakes : Shimano XT w/6" rear rotors (hayes) & 7" front (A-Z) - Trouble free hydraulic brake
Tires : Kenda Nevegal DTC 2.35 - Simply the best. Tahan lebih lama compare dgn yg ada stick-e rubber. Tapi climb tak sebaik yg ada stick-e
Rims : Sun S.O.S. Welded - Sama mcm yg Brian Lopes pakai. Dah pernah gelong 8 sbb crash. Blh urut balik dan masih dlm keadaan baik. My Favourite
Saddle : SDG BelAir RL - My favourite all around saddle.
Seatpost : Thomson Elite 30.0 - Simply the best
