Strengths:    Everything seems great, but the brakes are CRAP!

Weaknesses:    Brakes!!!

Bottom Line:   
Just a bought a 2008 Kona Dr. Dew at Dizzy's a couple months ago. Despite only using the bike for basic commuting, the brakes have given me nothing but grief, constantly rubbing and dragging. I've had it in the shop 4 times, and it initially seems fixed, but after one or two rides they are dragging again. The shop seems unable to permanently correct the problem. What's going on??!!

Strengths:    The quick handing of the fork, the hydraulic disc-brakes. Sloping top tube = more rigid frame = better power transfer!

Weaknesses:    27mm seat post size!!!

Bottom Line:   
Caught my eye in the bike shop as I was looking for a second bike for a trip to the cafe or fun ride on the weekend. Dr. Dew now comes with Shimano hydraulic discs. the 700C wheel meant that I can switch between my favourite road tires and the wider/more comfy 700X35. And becuz it's disc-equiped, I am even considering building a 26incher to do a lil off-road riding!
