Come for the coffee ... stay for the superbikes.

Every October, the small town of Kona transforms into a veritable Ironman mecca. Among the cooler things we saw was the transformation of local cafe, Lava Java, which has been sponsored and decorated by Scott Bicycles. Definitely worth a look, if for no other reason than to ogle the amazing equipment on display, including no fewer than FOUR new Plasma 3 superbikes. Even the menus had Scott's new geometric logo emblazoned on top, and it was a very cool sight to see.
