Today I was lucky enough to be given a Kona Cinder Cone which I am VERY grateful for, I thought it was going to be a piece of crap but to be honest after removing some of the dust (and believe me there's a lot) I found that the bike was in mint condition. Owned by a lovely lady who used it only to commute to school and back with the kids!
Anyway, I wa amazed that the chain was in good condition (no rust at all), the frame is mint under the dirt and the groupset is Deore LX! I was expecting something a lot less in quality so I was pretty amazed to say the least, the brakes are nice and sharp and the seat is brill too!
I have to say it is light as a feather and I already love the bike to bits, I'm thinking of modernising it with a splash of paint, but not sure just yet....we will see.
Anyway, I was wondering if you guys knew the year because I haven't the foggiest. So if you can help with that, then that would be great. I rode her home from the woman I got it from and it glided all the way back to mine, I am a very happy chappy.
Below are a few photos, sorry there not brilliant, I was in a rush and using my phone lol. Enjoy!
