Yeah took me a second to realize the no pic ... spacing.

Good looking bikes though.

I'm still at the point of needing to bleed my brakes from the last time I had my Kona Dawg Deluxe out.
I HATE bleeding brakes on a bicycle. Hydraulic brakes are ok but when it's time to do adjustments and bleeding it makes me wish I'd swapped them out to BB7s a while back. They are Hayes Carbon Strokers and OEM with the bike. When they are working right and in tune they are great but working on them is an exercise in fiddle factor. Get them right on the stand and then put my fat rear end on it and they'll be rubbing sure as certain.

Ah, bikes are like guns. You should see the rig I came up with to mate the Tioga disc to the Redline cranks.

I'd upgrade to low-end Shimano. No fiddling and cheaper than BB7s. All the other hydros just suck.
44mag and 357mag are my choices for rifle/revolver cartridges.
