On the first ride day of our second installment of the Kona Launch in Bellingham, Washington this past week, we challenged our dealers to a smart phone photo competition. With over 15 worthy submissions, as voted by the dealers here’s the top four. Each photo won a Shimano XT rear derailleur, courtesy of Shimano, with the top two taking home the extra bonus of new Kona Commuter bags by Brenthaven. Congrats to our winners!

Here our first place shot goes to the subject, Forest Davis of Bath Cycle, who managed to split his elbow open getting rad on the burly singletrack surrounding Mt Padden. Way to take one for the team Forest, enjoy your swag!

Second place goes to Jason Britton of Portland’s Bike Gallery, a sweet Dew with a sparkling can of Rainier in the background.


Third place goes to Joe Brown, owner of Methow Cycle & Sport, shreds Galbraith.


Taking the Hei Hei DL to new heights, Ezra Tautfest of Bicycle Express Shop wins fourth.
