56cm Kona Kapu in Molteni Orange
* Kona advertise this frame as 56cm. It measures 56cm centre-to-top, 55cm centre-to-centre, top tube is 55cm c-to-c.
* I have never ridden this frame. There is evidence of it being built (on the brake bridge, for example) but not a single blemish from uses. I don't think it has ever ventured outside. The manufacturing sticker on the underside of the BB still looks new.
* Deda SAT 14.5 steel with chromed lugs. If interweb rumours are to be believed this frame is built under the same roof as some pricer (but very similar looking and identically tubed) Itallian framesets.
* 1" Kona fork with chromed crown and cartridge bearing Cane Creek headset included.
* The frame is almost offensively orange. The colour sparkles in the light and looks brilliant with chromed lugs. Build it with black finishing kit and you'll have an absolutely beautiful bike.
* Equipped with a pump peg and room for fat tyres, a rack and mudguards.
* Rare!
* £375 UK posted

For what its worth, it is standing in my kitchen with wet black Ritchey WCS finishing kit, a Selle Regal Ti saddle, a set of black Chris King hubs laced to black Open Pro's and silver 2010 Centaur group set. I aborted cabling it up at the point where I realised the 'nad clearance at the top tube was unrealistic!

Halfway tempting just to hang it on a wall.

that is the right size for me and I love it.

Unfortunately my wallet disagrees. Would love to see a pic of the bike as a whole
