I am curious about the owner-chain / history of my kapu. Definitely came through a few forum people.

Mine is the 95/96 with the ‘98 graphics courtesy of iron man?

Looking at your build thread, yours is bright green.

What year was the darker olive green one. I always liked that and almost bought a used one, but went for an aluminium giant tcr instead


That was 96, and it's really dark olive, more aubergine than green I reckon.

:D Good luck both of you! There was 1 for sale a few years back that needed work but was at a good price. I haven't seen another since...

Same as the one I had and sold! (mine had the right forks though)
Tried to buy it back a while back too ...

One of the reasons I sold it was because I expected it to be the same frame as the '95 version - and it wasn't. Not having the fluted seat tube probably doesn't sound like a big deal, but it's one of the things I particularly loved about the 1995 bike.

Anyway all this talk of Kapus has me motivated. My '95 is sat in the hallway after having its old BB extracted. It's next to the very loud '09 Haole that's been my unicorn for years on end. First time I've ever seen one for sale and it was in my size!

I bought it from Mikkel who had bought it from Fritzlite and was about to do something terrible to the dropouts. In hindsight I'd have just touched up the damage rather than send it to Argos. I sold it to a very nice guy who kept it for quite a while and really liked it. He did offer to sell it back to me, but it was always one size too small.

Fritzlite also kindly supplied me with the Kapu I have downstairs :)
