I remember someone or another saying that I should try to hit up end-of-year specials, discontinued models, etc. when I was looking for a new bike. Sure enough, I walked into the store expecting to get a Giant Sedona and ended up getting a now-discontinued Kona Aloha hybrid model, which is essentially the same bike but a lot nicer. It's pretty much the ideal hybrid bike--semi-slick tires and seat suspension for my commuting needs, front suspension for light trail usage. For $325, I could have done a whole lot worse. Pics are to follow. Please, no comments about the fabric pattern of the chairs at my kitchen table.
