For Sale a 1997 Kona Hei Hei. Not sure of the size. Seat-tube is 20" but according to the Kona Catalkog as it has a 23.5" effective top tube it's a 19". Anyway it's in very good condition (please see photo's) it'll take a 100mm fork.

The frame doesn't ride as large as it loks (if that makes any sense) I'm 6ft 1 with 35 inside leg and it didn't feel cumbersome at all.

The head tube length and seat tube length (5.9") match up with a 20" frame, but that should mean a 24" effective top tube for this Hei Hei....

Maybe its worth checking the effective measurement again. In the past I've drawn out the geometric centrelines on a desk to confirm the effective top tube length of some frames. If you work with a 71deg head angle and 73deg seat angle from a reference hoziontal line you should be able to confirm the eff top tube without doubt. It may just be that the frame was made with a shorter top tube for someone(?)...

In the end it probably won't matter much as the frame is obviously going to suit taller person.

Anyway...

I take it the stickers are new from previous comments about the powder blue ones underneath. Are you also able to tell me the frame number?

Cheers

Andrew

Frame Number is B20638 (I'm guessing the 20 is the frame size)
