Not cool, it was badly designed and engineered - the kind of stuff that gave CNC parts such a bad reputation. It didn't have to be this way.. compared to Rachas, Avid Ultimates or Paul's Love Levers are a job done properly.

Back in the early 90's Kooka were my first diversion from Middleburn on my Pace. As I had changed it from a red bits to yellow, Kooka were the only ones good enough to provide me with matching yellow cranks in magura yellow!!!! Totally off the wall and defo cool.

Wow. 63% cool. :roll:

First cheap Konas and Marins, and now the most craptastic boutique brand of them all goes up on the wall?!? I think the next candidate for cool wall voting should be, The Cool Wall. :?
