Good luck!
When I was shopping for a Kona Honky Inc about 8 months ago, not even the distributor knew when stock was coming in, but were able to confirm "Not for a few months". I finally called every retail bike shop listed as a Kona agent and found two in the country. I ended up buying the 2010 model in 2012 because they offered a good deal on it. Since then I've had warranty issues that took several months and countless hours phoning/emailing to sort out: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=54924

Ugh, I've seen them on bikeexchange in Victoria but can't find any mention of them at any of the WA Kona dealers. Will see how it goes I guess. Just for clarity did you get the Kona or Surly?

Nevermind, just read the other thread. I kind of expect a lousy wheelset on a bike worth less than $2k. Your experience sounds truly terrible though.
