I really like the contours of this frame. In fact I'd expect most Kona admirers would give this the thumbs up; sloping top tube, etc.Sorry for the bluntness, but who cares what 'Kona owners' think!
A proper nice find and some good education for those of us not familiar with the history of Zinn.
These are extremely high quality frames, it would my Pioneer look like a Townsend.
If these were road bikes, it would be up there with the finest Hetchins or Colnago. Theres no Kona that would come close to the build quality. They are more works of art than humble mountain bike.
Nothing like a bit of bike snobbery eh? Jesus
Not all of us are blessed with oodles of cash and time to spend on super-rare machines.
I was merely pointing out some
similarities in style, not in construction or quality.
I'm disapointed that you've taken my comments that way, again for about the 50th time, there is no bike snobbery or any reference to how much cash people have to buy bikes with. I even did a thread where I showed how easy it was to buy your way in to left-field brands for less than a Tesco bike.
I dont want to get into an argument (again) but....
Comparing this to 'Kona' is a little rude towards the frame builder, sloping top tubes have been around much longer than the Kona brand name. And, to be honest its like comparing a Ford Focus with say, a Morgan Aero 8...
I cant afford either, as it happens!
