    HI everyone, new to this forum and already after help...

    I'm thinking of retiring my old Raleigh Randonneur and I like the look of the new Kona Sutra. However, I've yet to see one in the flesh. How happy are bike shops to order you in a bike to have a look at, or do they only do this if your definatley going to buy the bike?

    Alternatively, does anyone know a shop in the north west that has one in stock?

    Cheers
    Rob

  3. They don't make them any more, if you want one and can find one buy it, Kona's sub contractor has had to cease manufacture due to production problems.
     
  4. Mickle has got it wrong.....


    The Kona Sutra is still being and still will be in the shops for some time he was thinking of the Kona kapu how he could of got that mixed up I dont know.

    Have a look on the Kona web site for all the dealers where you are and phone them to see.
     

  5. Arse. I was fed misinformation by a previously reliable source. The Sutra is alive and well, it's the Kapu which will soon be extinct. Sorry.

    Shame anyway. The Kapu looks like a nice bike.

    Cheers for the replies.

    I've been phoning round the stores on the Kona website, no where yet has one in the shop. I was told by one that Kona don't have any, but are expecting a delivery sometime in May.

    Intrigued, I hunted down a some reviews. Positive feedback mostly, though one criticism seems to be the lack of front wheel clearance.

    This looks like a comparable bike but with an alu frame, and 200 quid cheaper. Does anyone have a EBC tourer? Comfy??

    If you get one, get the Kamo Sutra jersey to go with it
