Thanks for the replies... TedC, yours looks really nice with P2 fork..
Ta, currently in a quandry pn the forks - stick with the Z3's but get the resprayed to black (they're not the originals), or stick P2's on.
Two more questions.. is the BB 68 mm?? and the seatpost clamp 28.6?
Pretty sure that's correct, but can go measure this evening.
From searching the net, I'm not sure if Kona currently makes a 420 P2 fork.. Bikeman.com only has 440 mm and 410 mm. I think a Kona would be the best match.. I really don't want to spend $$ on a high end rigid fork.. like a Vicious Cycle. Are there any other brands that I should look at?
Personally, putting a non-Kona rigid fork on just wouldn't be right. Also check the new ones are for 26", not 700C. Used P2's come up regularly on ebay, slightly less often on here. Aim for triple butted rather than single. If they're not the correct colour, a respray/powder coat should be reasonable and I feel sure Gil on here could do new decals.
From the parts box.. I have..
