I couldn't hold out any longer, everytime I open the bike shed it tempts me...

...so the Kona has been pulled apart:

Looks nice even with a couple of bits on it, but 20 mins later and I think it's starting to look even better:

I'm not usually a fan of new fangled aluminium shenanigans, but I really like that. :D

It does look good in the flesh... Not ridden yet, waiting on a rear pm to is adaptor to arrive and I need a new front mech. Stupidly assumed this one was dual pull when I ordered it because it didn't specify and all the others specified bottom pull! I need a top pull!
