Really suprised by this! I thought everyone loved Konas for some reason! :lol:
I really like them- long slopey top tubes and good paint/decals make for a very attractive looking bike. Everyone at school used to lust after one back in the day so i guess thats why they're still on my want to own list.
Never ridden one, like. :wink:

This is really surprising me. When the Lava Dome is back from the painters, I'd better not get the "hey thats nice but Konas are uncool."

Uncool is a Trek 930 or a Giant Rincon. Yawn. Konas did it different, they spec'd rigid forks on their top line bikes long after anyone else did. Their stuff worked, unlike a lot of the "niche" framebuilders back in the day. People who knock them - have you tried riding one off the bikepath? Nothing ruled the East Coast woods where I grew up like the Konas. Some of the US people here, back me up.

I agree!

I rode Konas in 1991+. I switched to a Pace in 1995.

'Gubbins' bit of a tricky one really, I guess it sort of means 'Nonsense/Rubbish' ...
