Anyone in the Tampa area have one of these? If so would you be willing to let me try it out?

Thanks

I think Bicycle Outfitters in Seminole is a Kona dealer. Check Kona online for local Kona dealers and go from there.

Thanks, but no they aren't.


Why don't the local, ie central FL, Kona dealers have these bikes? Why be a dealer if you're not going to carry the products?

Well I've been in their shop in the past and saw a lot of Kona bikes. Maybe they stopped?

Based soley on thier website they don't list Kona as a brand they carry. Maybe I'll give them a call.

Yeah. He doesn't have one. Neither does Kyle's Bike Shop in Orlando. If I decide to get one Native will get my business, I was just hoping to ride one.

Hei Hei was on chainlove.com earlier today for a silly low price, like $1400.00.
