    For the longest time my bike of choice has been my Kona Sutra which I bought just over two years ago, but with my 30th birthday approaching I thought it was time to have a bike that could go just a little bit faster. Don’t get me wrong, the Kona Sutra is an incredible...

    Schwable Kojak Tyre

    Just under a month ago I bought myself a 2017 Brompton M6L, and I have to say it is incredible. Like most bikes however, especially one constructed of steel; it has a weight penalty.

    Kona Zing Supreme
