I am selling 2 of my loved Kona bikes. Both are size 20"

The prices are without shipping, you can pick them up at Gloucestershire (GL5 1RN) or at London around the end of October, or please add the cost of your chosen carrier.

1, Kona Explosif from 1999, Price:760 -> SOLD
2, Kona Lava Dome, custom modified. Price: 440
3, Kona Lava Dome, standard with p2 Price: 440

I am selling a unique Kona Lava Dome: Horizontal dropouts, Alfine-8 speed rear hub, Carbon belt drive option.

The base was a new Kona Lava Dome (I believe 2001 model, but not certain). Tailor made, laser cut vertical dropouts were added.
The dropouts were designed to enable the installation of Belt Drive instead of chain. With other words the rear triangle can be opened to install the belt drive.
In addition, due to the horizontal dropouts, special disc brake mounts were necessary, which are also unique and laser cut.
The rear triangle on the brake side was strengthened and the entire frame&fork (Kona P2) was powder coated. The color is one shade brighter than Bianci green.
After I finished the project I could only try it once and now I have to move, so I have to sell some bikes and spare parts

The bike is built up mainly with new elements, but some used parts were also applied:

Frame and Fork
Rear Wheel and Shifting: Alfine 8 speed hub & shifter + Mavic 317X
BB: I can not really remember, but certainly something with industrial bearings
Brakes: Shimano BR-585
Handlebar, Grip, Pedals

Used (but all in a very nice shape):
Front: Mavic 317X and DT Hayes (DT 340)
Stem: Richey
Seatpost: AC
Tires: Michelin Wildgripper, green
It is pictured with saddle, but it comes without

3 KONA LAVA DOME, Standard
Frame: Kona Lava Dome, Double butted
Fork: Kona P2
Hubs: Hügi Sport (Very old version of DT 240)
Rims: Syncros (Made by weinmann)
Stem & Seatpost: Syncros (original Canadian)
Bar: Answer Taperlight II
Saddle: SDG Titanium/kevlar
Drive: Sachs Quartz crank, Race-Face chainring (Canadian)
