So the 2019 Rove LTD is on the Kona site ... not sure of the colour ... looks black or dark plum? Has anyone seen it yet?
Also ... how is the mud clearance with 29/700 wheels?


How does the 2019 model compare to 2018? I have seen that it now has Formula hubs instead of Sram 900, and different kind of Wtb rims. Also, it is stated that it has Horizon tires, but the bike is pictured with Byways.

I have 2018 model and I like it very much, I was thinking of adding another one and setting it up as more dirt focused (Byways or some Schwalbe MTB tires), but I think the wheels are not as good as 2018 model, so I am considering buying a frame and building it myself.

I threw one of my wife's Mavic ksyrium pro discs on the front of the Rove Ltd.  These tires measure 37 wide on this rim (nominal 33?!). The fork is the same as the Jake's, if that helps.
