Picked this up today for £200 8)

I'm pretty sure its a 2000. The specs seem to tie up other than the brakes have been changed to Hope and the cranks are not Race Face Turbines.
The decals are the glow in the dark ones, don't know if this was standard!!

The bushes at the top of the rear shock are worn, so they will need to be replaced. Can anyone recommend anywhere??

Any other info gratefully received.

:wink:

Bargain! I'd get shock bushes from TF Tuning. Pretty sure they'll do some heavy duty ones as well as normal ones.

chain reaction are selling full bush and bearing kits for most kona models. i think your model is a ob1 as my stinky is a 2003 and its an ob2. (ob= out of bounds). :D

Well...it seems like the previous owner had no idea about servicing bikes!!!!!

The sealed bearings in the front hub are completely knackered. new ones are on their way.

I have ordered the suspension bushes from TF Tuned.

The Jockey Wheels are completely worn!!
I'm hoping this doesn't mean the chain has never been changed!! I'm going to try and strip the bike completely over the next week, so ill get a better idea of other problems......oh, and I need to learn how to set up and bleed disc brakes!!

:?
