    Kona Bikes is a bicycle company in Ferndale,
    Washington and Vancouver, British Columbia. It
    specializes in high-performance mountain bikes,
    racing and touring bicycles. The company name comes
    from the owners' love of Kailua-Kona in Hawaii.
    Initially the company marketed bicycles under the
    brand name "Cascade", but had to change the name
    after a trademark dispute. Kona was the second
    choice, and is used to this day. Names of the
    bicycles started out with Hawaiian and volcanic
    names like the Cinder Cone, Explosif, Hei Hei
    (Hawaiian for "race"), Hahannah (Hawaiian for
    "hot"), Fire Mountain, Hot, Lava Dome and Kilauea
    (released in 1993 and named after the Hawaiian
    volcano). Kona started to use tongue-in-cheek humor
    in the names. Names like the Stinky and Coiler
    started to appear. Some of the earliest full
    suspension bikes were named the Sex One and Sex Two
    ("Sex" was short for "Suspension EXperience").
    Those were dropped after complaints[who?]. When
    nobody complained about bikes called Stab and
    Shred, Kona joked that violence was more acceptable
    than sex

    So why do you have a picture of a Giant MTB in your ad for Kona? You're selling stolen stuff?

    I would be willing to sell you an English dictionary at a reasonable rate.

    Nah, I'm not really up for giving money to someone running a scam. You're not selling stolen and fake iPhones anymore?
