I'm guessing these are like hen's teeth but if anyone has one of knows someone who would be open to selling one, preferably in a larger size, that's mainly original then please PM me.

I'm expecting zero replies but if you don't ask...

I'm only posting to raise and then dash your hopes. Knew you couldn't ignore the call of proper cycling for much longer.

Thing is, if I can't get one of these then as Luke said to Darth "I'll never join you!"

Keep an eye out for an '08 too, the orange frame with chrome lugs one. They look really nice in the flesh.

I liked this so much I decided to also post to raise / dash your hopes, but also try and make it worse by posting photos of Kona bikes I used to own but don't anymore, so I can't sell them to you.
Kona Kapu - same year as you'd like I think (the graphics are different because I stupidly re-painted it. Still, Argos did a fantastic job)

Here's a much-wanted '08 Kapu hiding behind a GT Edge Ti. I sold them both and regret it almost every day:

... and here's the Kapu again, this time hiding behind a Salsa La Raza:

You lot are cruel...so cruel...and you wonder why I won't join the dark side. I give it chance and I get shot down :wink: :lol:

Nice shots though - the 08 is a lovely machine for sure, but I'd love that green machine from 1997...even googling there are very few non-catalogue shots of them. Sometimes I wonder if they sold any at all...

Probably a bit on the small side, but here's an advert for a new frame.

Yep, exchanged some PM's with Pebble yesterday, sadly it's way too small for me.

Totally un-realistic but I've been trawling the net without luck type bump.
