The photo was taken yesterday, during a long 115km ride - this is why there are all the lights, bag, mudguards fitted :wink:

I've had the bike for 2.5 months now. Every ride proves it's the best bike I've ever had 8)

Nice. That's a good looker.

Without being nosey did you get it at a discount to RRP? I find that Konas are often quite heavily discounted, which makes them decent value for money as they aren't always up to t spec wise at their given RRP.

My modern Kona is brilliant - all the bits that I love about retro Kona's with nice modern forks and discs. What's not to like!

P.S. Nice to see it getting enough use to scuff the decals off the cranks :D

Yes, quite a big discount really! £201 comparing to the RRP. But it was my insurer who paid for it when my '92 Marin got stolen... 8)

They disappeared in the first two weeks of riding ;) But I do quite a lot of miles. Just to say that I'm already finishing the second chain (it has just passed the 0.75% mark yesterday) :lol: The original deore got killed in four weeks... Sram 971 seems to be much more durable.
