Kona Stab Garbanzo. Spec is custom for Whistler. Super-T, Sram derailleur, Fox w ProPedal, etc.
I rented one when my bike broke early in the day a couple weeks ago & it was a decent ride.

There are a few shops that rent too. Banshees & Norcos are 2 I heard about.

When i was up there on May long they were renting out VIRGIN Stab Garbanzo's. Would have been cool to pop its cherry... by the end of the season, just think how many feet of vert will be on it :P

It's good they got new bikes. My bro rented a couple years back. One of the stanchions broke. He fell on it and it speared into his full face helmet right into the jaw line breather hole. He ended up with six stitches in his face. If he didn't have his full face on he would have been talkin out of his ear right now. :( The messed up thing about it is they made him pay for the fork. Talk about adding insult to injury!

The bikes look sick this year.
they have Dee-max:thepimp:

It would be cool to rent a scream or something but jsut to see how it feels.

I wish you could demo for one or two runs:D

i think it woul dbe a wayyyy better deal to rent a peeler from cove for 60 bucks for 24 hours instead of some crappy kona at whistler for 100 for 12 hours

If you go up with your school it's $15 to rent a Stab Garbanzo for the day. All in all $50 is getting me lift, guide, bike, armor (I dont need that though) and gas money from PoCo. :)

hmmmm, id go for the peeler jordan. When i went up my friend rented one, he got it for three days and it cost him 45 a day. It was in better condition from the joy rides that i saw. Hopefully that helps:)

the stabs are 50% if you have a season's pass for another couple of weeks. :) or 15% off the joyrides all summer. :)
