    P.S. Do you have a number for me to call re hardtail frames 2010 or 2011. I was speaking with the guys at Torq and they suggested I drop you a line.

    Hi, my name is Will, I am 17 and I’m currently studying at A-Level in the UK. I’ve always been extremely interested in Kona Bikes and I own the 2011 Blast model. I want to ask what sort of qualifications you require for a job on your product design team. Would a degree in sports product design fit the bill?

    Thanks, Will.
