Very nice, nice to see more simple steel bikes which aren't that much different than the old days :D

Smart, very smart, nice to se it next to the old Kona, how things have changed even with a similar brief. Bet it can handle the rough stuff a bit, and a respectable weight, my retro is more than that!

Its great to see peoples 'new' bikes, loads of us seem retro at heart so good to see what people have chosen.

30 and 20 are the same frame, both with butted cro-mo rear stays. The differance between the bikes is purely spec and paint.
