Very original 2003 Kona Caldera, ex-Tracy Moseley team bike

17in Frame in chestnut metallic

Has been used a lot, expected signs of MTB use but maintained

See detailed original spec link
Basically its a classic rugged Kona Aluminium frame with Deore XT throughout & Mavic/XT Wheels.

Recent replacement like-for-like XT brake system.
Differences compared to original spec as follows:
WTB saddle although I believe this is actually the original fitment.
Schwalbe Racing Ralph tyres
Lizard Skins lock-on grips

Realistic asking price of £150 viewing & collection from Essex area

Too small for me or I'd snap your hand off for this.

Tracy Moseley rode for Kona factory team 1999 - 2008-ish, this was one of her team bikes at the time. I acquired the bike and have kept it the way was.

Do you have any evidence of this? Pictures or anecdotes?

Particularly one that would be much too big for her!
