So, What's Going On?

That's a very good question. So much has happened since I last updated this blog, and for a while I wondered if I was going to delete it, or let it sit static, or whatever. I think I've decided to expand the scope of this blog and continue to post to it - just not always bike-related stuff. (although I think bike-related stuff will still be a big part of it)

That's it for now - not much, I know, but be patient. I mean, you have already, right?

Hi, Francesco!

I have the 2008 Kona Sutra, and it still has the stock front rack that came on the bike when I bought it. I have Ortlieb sport packer bags that I use on that rack, and they fit perfectly. No problems whatsoever.

One thing you might want to check before you buy a Sutra is to see if your toes hit the front tire when turning at low speed (a "toestrike") - I've had some issues with that on my Sutra. It wasn't enough to make me decide on another bike, but it can be annoying.

Best of luck!
