    Jumping I dont know. Aggresive trail riding, I could see if doing that. Riding on the roads sure, but who likes to ride mountain bikes on the road. Haha.

    Oh no I am not saying that it is garbage, Kona makes a lot of nice bikes. I would say get the CoilAir that is coming out in 2006 but that might be too much. Hmm. Or just check out the Kona Coiler now. That is a decent bike.

    I've got an '03 Dawg and like it a lot. Takes everything I through at it and then some. Great bike.
