It's a little small for me, but makes a wicked fast pavement ripper. The great thing is, I picked it up because aside from the brake arch (since removed), saddle, bar and bar ends (which I added to stretch the cockpit out a bit). It's pretty much original.

What's the fattest tire combo that I can put on this Kona steel? Also, the bike thanks you for your kind words.
