First of all, hi everybody! First post here...

Got a question that im sure you guys can answer. Found a Kona Fire mountain for sale, but the seller dont know what year its from.
Been searching hi and low all over das internet, but i havent found a single picture with a fire mountain in similar colour. Looks like the -98 decals on it, but thats year model was blue and not grey like this one.

Is it a 98, and why is it grey? Not as it matters, but im just curious.

/Magnus

Off road - Sunn Xiurcit -97
On road - Crescent Nano -11
Sunday Rides - Banani -70something

Definitely not a 98 (at least in the UK colours) as built. At that time they had flat bars, STX-style shifters, 5 arm CPI cranks.

The frame looks Kona-ish, but only a good view of detailing like dropouts would confirm it. It might be a resprayed frame with a load of later kit on it.

Cheers Mark. I just thought that it was a steel frame, so I didn't look at the 2000 onwards models. Silly me...
But then it's ok that someone else bought it today as I'm on the hunt for a -96 to -98 one.

Thanks again.
