Good morning Ratfans!

Snuck this purchase in pre-lockdown.

Never built and came with:

- XTR FD
- Easton EC70 post
- Nice looking red BB

All for £80, very decent price I thought.

Was on eBay with a starting price of £90 but no one bid so I messaged the seller. Lovely chap.

Will be another slow build but think it’ll be a lightweight whippet when done...

That seems like a great deal to me! I'm not overly familiar with the modern Kona hardtail, but that does look very nice.
Any ideas what parts will be going on it?

Very much fancy a full XTR drivetrain with hope wheels/brakes and carbon handlebars etc.

Flashes of red here and there to match the frame...

Looking forward to riding it at some point in! 2021!

Cheers dude, not seen one before so couldn’t resist at £80!

It’s a lovely frame.

I’d have been pretty happy at double that tbh.

First full carbon hardtail!

You got an amazing deal on that. Nice one.
I bet it's very light.
What part of the country was it?

Thank you.

It was in Bristol.

Was surprised it hadn’t sold tbh.
