Thought I'd put some pics up of the Kula.
I built it up from a bare frame including repainting it.

Any comments good or bad welcome.

Like the frame and the yellow. Dont like the decals on the top tube, and too many shades of red. Not a fan of the stem.

But, its your bike and you obviously do like it. I would go for black parts and tone down some of the red ano. Frame itself would look great with older 97/8 style Kona graphics I reckon.

I have a bike with loads of red on it, people tell of they're all different shades but I'm colourblind so they all look the same to me! I like what you've done, looks like it was fun to spec and build.

Coomber, must admit that the wheel skewers are a bit pink :)
As for the stickers, wanted to keep with the fairly modern look.

Thanks Rumble,
It was fun to build. Handles most stuff with ease.

I dont mind the Kona logo in modern guise, I just think the Kula decal could be more interesting. Looks kind of like a normal typed Microsoft word print, whereas at least the Kona decal looks more interesting.

Only my opinion mind.

I do hear what you are saying Coomber.
Can't do anything about it as I lacquered the stickers.

So I'll have to live with it :wink:

Cranks are holding up well, expected more heel rub by now.
