Depending on your budget & size, there is a '09 Kona PHD sitting at Jubilee for $999. Race geometry but with flat bars. Should be slightly quicker than your current Kona .
Thanks that bluebook is pretty sweet haha. How is Kona nowadays? The last time I looked at new bikes was when I bought it back in Deep Cove (and it was still made here).

Hey, if you tell John that I referred you (Mike, with the Guru and CAAD10) he might try to help you out.

And yeah, most likely that's 2013, not 2012.

This.

Perhaps, if you can pay by cash. John, might even sweeten it up for you.

Good luck.

I did a fitting the other day and had the cassette swapped over at the same time. Should have let them do my tires (did it myself but destroyed 2 tubes in the process.) #HipsterFail

that was my original plan, go in for my fitting and bring the wheels/tires/tubes and swap the cassette and get it all done in one shot lol.

Threw on the Michelin Pro 4 Service Course tires onto my wheels earlier. I didn't take them out very far, just around the neighbourhood and back home. Here are my initial thoughts:

- These tires absorb/mask road shock and vibration better than the Michelin Pro 3. The difference isn't significant but noticeable enough.
- Lots of grip (but this could also mean prone to punctures - only time will tell)
- Low, smooth rolling resistance yet provides a good, solid ride

I find that these are a good compromise between the Michelin Pro Race 3 and Continental GP4000s, but closer to it's Michelin predecessor. Again, keep in mind that I only took it around the block so I haven't really broken the tires in nor have I done any hard riding on it with enough mileage.

Price Paid: $36.12 each from Wiggle (just the tires themselves)

Other details:

- Tested on a 2012 Cannondale CAAD10-4.
- Reynolds Solitude wheelset
- I had the Pro 3 tires on the same wheelset earlier this season (now on the Guru.)

I'm a little biased but I like these over the GP4000s.

Edit: dat_steve - Beautiful bike man.

cant wait to throw these pro race 4 SC on the boyd vitesse, hopefully i'll notice a difference with new tire combo/boyd vs the current rs10 with schwalbe lugano.

@dat_steve awesome bike! good looking wheels too. slammed stem

Just got my CRC order today. Ordered on the 21st, got shipped on the 22nd. Super fast shipping! I ordered the Michelin Pro Race 4's with the 2 free tubes and a Kryptonite Evolution S4 Lock to put me over the $99 free shipping threshold.

However I had to pay $30 bucks at my door... people beware
