kona zing

Does anyone have sny experience with the Kona zing. Seen it recently on the chain reaction site. Seems to be a great bike to me, but can't see any reviews about it.

I've got the 2010 Zing. It was £625 down from £900 ish which is pretty much why I bought it. Don't really have anything to compare it to but I'm perfectly happy with it. Probably done 9 or 10k and no complaints. It was a bit of a hurried purchase but I'm definately happy with it. All I've replaced is tyres and bar tape!

I got a Zing Deluxe cheap as it was last of years range and only one available.

Frame sizing suited me as slightly shorter top tube length than most but im talking 1cm here - small model.

Came with full 105/Ultegra.

No complaints at all, Brakes are unbadged shimano and not the best but i expected that.
105 Triple shifter isnt the best front shifter ive used, lesser models have worked better.
Wheels are spot on, Shimano again.

Wouldnt question the purchase again if I had to. Love it.
