I took some new 'arty' pics. I love this bike. It rides so light and when I go tubeless it'll feel even faster :D

kona fans unite! :D

I've got a modern Hope 'saw-tooth' style rotor in 5-bolt pattern on the way to match the rear.

This bike still needs good fettle to be properly ridable. As it is its only suitable for jaunts down the shops or light local trails. Sadly I cant afford to get it 100% complete yet :cry: Rear wheel needs truing, brakes need a bleed and new pads, and the lower cassette sprockets need replacing.

Its nice to look at though :lol:

Saw a '95 Kona re-done in white and thought the baby blue decals looked nice on the white frame.

She rides real nice :)
