Ended up stripping most of the bits off it, as I needed the brake levers and sold the stem and bars as they weren’t my cup o tea.
Not much left:

They make great commuting bikes (except for the rather high BB) because they have all the braze-ons, and are very stable to ride - modern MTBs usually have quite quick steering, but you can ride one of those '92 Konas, hands-off all day.

The colour really suits it.

Frame is for sale, will provide more details and pics
It’s small/ X small and has a few scars, seat post is snug but by no means stuck, just needs a little wire wool

I’ll put it in the FS section when ready but expect to ask £10 + delivery without the dog collar and without forks
Happy to swap for just about anything :)
