How could this thread even exist?

Steel.
Long top tubes.
Short chain stays.
A rigid fork design lusted for by even the most modern-minded MTBers.

Take away your GT RTSes, your Disc Drives, you're F'n Trimbles, and Konas would still RULE the retro roost.

OK, in the shed is a Cinder Cone. I built it for my son years ago - XT 7-speed, thumbies, cantis. It's been a trail bike, a paper bike, a trials bike (yes, with no rear mech, a 20T chainring with bash ring), it's done Manchester to Blackpool four times (on slicks). It's back on Arayas and all 21 gears now.

Oh yes, Konas are cool.

In fact, it should be spelt KOOL.

Yeah but most of us also stuck all those cheap and nasty stickers that came with MBUK on our bikes and that doesnt make us cool!
