Hi,

Just looking at a local Craig's list and spotted this.

http://osaka.craigslist.jp/bik/3655042415.html

The owner wants to sell cheap and it looks like it has P2 which I could use. Googled Kona Kyber and couldn't find anything.

Couldn't tell you exactly what EU or US model is the same name but it looks like a 2000-2001 decal set. If you can figure out what tubing decals it has (if any)you can probably make a good assumption as to what the common equivalent would be.

It looks quite similar to a 2000 Kilauea, but I don't think it can be one as it has rack eyes on the dropouts.

I did a search on google japan and found this photostream, it should be enough for Anthony to determine the model.

It has ritchey drop outs if that helps, but the forks dont look to be the triple butted versions

not being so clever, it is just the same results as uk :facepalm:

The hooded Ritchey dropouts on the Adam Taber frame are the same as they used on the 2000 Kilauea. Maybe the rack on the Craigslist bike isn't actually attached to the dropout. Beyond saying that it looks a lot like a 2000 Kilauea, I still don't know what the frame is, but they wouldn't spec those dropouts for a low-end model.

That rack looks like it's P-clipped to the stays to me.
