Just picked this up last week, 94 (I think?) Lava Dome. Original paint still pretty good. 1.125" slicks fitted and now mudguards I'm afraid too..... :oops: Nice short XT mech fitted and thumbies which surprisingly feel great to use. Don't know the original spec but I assume there's been a few changes, especially the XT vees hence the clumsy looking cable stop carrier on the top tube..... Was really looking for something understated and capable of taking a few knocks in the works bike sheds, but I'm actually loving my first Kona..... :wink: Before anyone says, yes I know the collar was the wrong way round and no, they're not my plants.....

Ah, my very favourite Kona. I've always loved that colour - they looked great with Marzocchis on them too, though I think I'd stick with the P2 myself.

I'm 99% sure that's 1994... I have a 94 Fire Mountain, and have always thought that was the last year they made "proper" Konas ;-)

Cheers,

AJ

I've been kinda intending to sort a commuter (not that I think I'll be allowed to spend the cash)- that is pretty much exactly what I had in mind. Congrats!

i think this is the best colour lava domes come in. a guy i used to share an office bikeshed with a few years ago had a mint original one. put my shabby 1996 to shame - i was faster though :p
