Hi guys, long time reader, first time poster.
Just wanted to show you my year 2000 Kona King Kikapu.
It's been a long process building her up as I could afford various parts, and the result is an eclectic mix, but it works well for me.
Yes it's a tiny frame, but after back surgery I'm still left with a relatively short torso vs my leg length. It looks a bit odd but it works.
Mixed selection of parts, some new, some old. Spec goes something like this:
