Hello from a noob here!
Here is my beloved bike. It's a little garish, and not exactly feather-light, but pretty much bomb-proof as it stands; my 2002 Kona Lava Dome which I bought new over 7 years ago:
Over and above standard it has:
- '04 Manitou Skareb Platinum forks
- FSA Orbit XL2 headset
- Easton EA50 seatpost (need a 400mm one as this is 350 and too short really and is causing my knees pain on climbs, but can't find one I want in 27.0mm dia.)
- SDG Bel Air RT saddle (hella comfy)
- Club Roost XC2 bars
- Wellgo V8 clones
- Cheapo green GT grips (a little small in diameter for my hands, but will do for now)
There don't seem to be many of these about at all, pretty rare I think. And yes, I need to remove the reflectors (never got around to it)!
