OUT OF THE BOX PART 1 - KONA

So two parcels turned up yesterday. One had this Magic Link equipped 2010 Kona Cadabra in it. We will be testing this bike for issue 37 of Spoke. So far it's had a roll down the drive and is still sporting refelectors and those pedal thingys so I can't report on its ride just yet. I won't be testing it personally but I am itching to see how the Magic Link performs out on the trail. It's a pretty modest build but one that's really growing on me: SLX up front, XT in the back, new Shimano 575 brakes, Mavic CrossRide wheels and the proven combo of a Fox Float RL with 15QR up front and an RP23 to handle rear duties.
