Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this is the model with Scandium main tubes and steel rear triangle?

Mine is the full Scandium frame...

...full Scandium;

I knew there was a difference - which was why I went for the 2K over the 2K+1.

Hi, Winstanleys had a 19" along with the 16" and a 20", all NOS. I bought the 19", I couldn't resist at that price. It has built up into a great bike. they look even better in the 'metal'. God knows where they found them.

Kona create confusion with there website and tech doc's though.

2K1 website says Easton Scandium and Easton Ultralite, tech info says Easton Scandium and Asymmetric Butted Stays.
2K website says Scandium, tech says Easton Scandium/Easton Ultralite. :?

Happy rider here, I can still remember drooling over them in the 2001 catalogue :P

2K Owners Manual says Scandium - you only have to compare the stays in the pictures...

My Scandium stays are the same style as the steel stays on the Kilauea, 2K+1 Ultralite stays are the same as practically all the Konas that came after - which I don't like, hence the 2K frame...
