I'm urban riding so headlight strength is not so much of an issue. I will post impressions if I go for the bike. Still on the fence... It's more than I thought of spending when I started looking!Ask your Kona dealer to swap in the B&M headlight from the DL model, other than that maybe buy a pair of studded tires if you intend to ride in winter. I’d be interested to read your impressions if you buy one.
