Hi All,

Thought I'd post up my NOS Kona Cowan I have just built up from a donor bike I recently picked up. This is a frame I used to want when I used to hang around bike shops after school :D

I plan to rebuild the Pikes shortly and then sort the brakes out... well get some new brakes including a front! Would love some old XT 2-pots but those are hard to come by here in NZ!

Hopefully you enjoy!

That is a very clean looking bike, the build just fits together for a very cohesive look.
Congrats

They are indeed the blue ones. Are they rare? Aftermarket only?

Wouldn’t mind replacing the the bars and stem with something more fitting to the age. Some Azonics perhaps!

Yes, I remember Winstanleys having a NOS pair on offer many years ago - once I had the cash they were gone. Not seen a pair since. Azonic did a double wall riser in navy blue too - would be perfect 8)
