I find myself riding the cross bike more and more, I am accepting of the fact that I need to find a road bike with the same fit and feel in order to satisfy that pull. The Kona is so stiff and solid that it makes my trusty Cervelo feel like a noodle. This is on the “Suburban Ninja” loop, which a new, hidden little gem up north of the BCRT. I’m curious how this loop will pan out long term, supposedly, it is approved by the county, however the point of entry as it exists right now will eventually be someone’s side yard once the development is finished out, so I assume there will be significant changes. Interestingly, I’ve ridden the loop nine or ten times, and never seen another human back there til yesterday, when I saw FOUR.
