You couldn't make this up could you? Never seen one ever, then 2 come along in the space of 2 weeks :lol:

No, thankfully it's not the same and this one would be too small for me. One interesting difference is this definitely has the proper top tube 1995 decal of "Bici Strada" (Road Bike) where-as the one that's heading my way has the old 1994 Race Light decal.

I'll save some of the other detail for the build thread :wink:

I thought I was imagining it! I noticed the "bici strada" name in the description and thought the seller was getting carried away. Unfortunately too big for me,

After some epic payment struggles (logistics not budget) the Kapu is heading to NY for the first part of the journey.

Just LOL....what is going on? Right click and save-as everyone, here's a 1996 version...yes, a 96 version...search for pictures of one, you won't find any until now!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/vintage-Kona-ro ... 4acb91daa1

It says it's a 56cm but I think it's slightly bigger with that head-tube but thank f**k it's too small for me otherwise I'd be on another logistical journey!

LOL @ the re-naming, hope that's more to do with the owner than the bike!
