I might have a go for this .Since there is no postage and it is in my neck of tthe woods,It may go reasonably cheap.
Let me know if anyone else is going for it, I do not want to be bidding against fellow members.

I wouldn't be surprised if there was some serious last second bidding on this - be prepared! (Won't be me by the way! :D )

I thought it looked bigger than a 17.5 frame.I contacted the seller to confirm and he said it is definetely 17.5 to top of seat tube.

It's the skinny tyres that does it. Check out how far up the seat tube the pedal is (approx 7 inch crank).
Shame, I'd be more interested if it was a 19" or bigger.

Yes....but .....

Kona sizes (like Klein) were demented....

Thats a 20" by Kona definition. The headtube size defines it.
