i never quite got to the bottom of what these cranks are,

my memory tells me it had the word impel and then a number before i started polishing but on the rear of the crank arms it said xd.

I think they are sugino 700. but anyways they took a 113 bottom bracket

1993 used a Fuse XD 500 with knowing Kona, some budget Shimano fitted ;)

1994 used an Impel 500 and would have had the UN-51 @113 fitted

As a side given it's 113 I would guess it's a Low Profile crank and not a Super Low Profile crank (i.e Shimno xtr/xt of the era)
So my guess is the range is 113 to 118, similar to Suntour MicroDrive

Definitely not 107... :P
110 was ok for me, 113 is probably right

This is the range quoted by Sheldon Brown too...

113 for the Impel on the Kona is certainly correct though (says so in the Kona catalogue for that year ;))

I also have some Sugino Impel cranks successfully mated to a 113mm BB.
