Think i may have posted this in the "Work Bikes" section a while back but made some recent changes (mainly got rid of the alivio :oops: )

It's had a great many changes over the years. Firstly, I bought some blue hope ti hubs & had them laced to some citrus 517's - soon after I put these on, some scrote broke into my garage. Luckily the frame was hung on a hook to the rafters & D-locked to it. They used my tools & removed the wheels, lime green Z3 lights & the brake calipers though...

I used the insurance money to buy some Pace RC36 MXCD which i still have & want to put back on, but need work.

Frame: 1998.5 Kona Pahoehoe, Taper-Butted Easton Elite 7005 - 19"

Fork: Marzocchi MX Comp 2006.

Headset: WTB Momentum C
Stem: Kona Tahoma
Handlebar: Kona DH (Allegedly made by World Force/Azonic as far as i can remember)
Grips: 243 Racing - BMX grips - fattest ones my lbs had in when i needed some. Stanley knife required to trim the flanges :D so the shifters move.

Brakes: Shimano LX V-Brakes from c01
Brake Pads:
Brake Cables: Shimano
Brake Levers: Avid SD 1.9L

Shifters: Shimano XT M739

Hubs: Kona "Javva The Hub"

Tyres: Schwalbe Marathon 1.5"

Saddle: Bontrager effort my mate donated - not comy, I feel it may even be designed for a lady?!
Seatpost: Kona
Seatpost Binder: Allen Key

Weight: Heavier than i'd like for a bike with a claimed frame weight of 3.4lbs, no idea what it actually weighs, but the forks are on the heavy side in comparison to those previously run.

My mate used it a Dalby last saturday - he hasn't ridden a bike since his beautiful '98 Kona Stab got nicked about 7 years ago - stuck some proper tyres on it & he's hooked - currently trying to figure out if he can afford the Trek he fell in love with in Stif the other day.

I did however, find a dent on the underside of the top tube when "cleaning" it.
