I absolutely love this bike but I have just one criticism from a personal point of view;

The saddle doesn't quite cut it...

What you want is the Annivesary Flite - it would be a perfect match for the paint (I had to tone mine down with black boot polish :roll: )

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Selle-Italia- ... 4cf5043689

IMHO that would be gilding the lily... 8)

Middleburn rings inspired choice BTW (but please stand that front brake noodle up!)


Cheers, black saddle will be offered up soon :wink:

V brake noodle is just fine, don't want it slipping backwards and wearing the paint on head tube in any way or form. :)

:lol:

I did say it was my personal preference...

...you'll see what I mean when I post my e-stay special as the blue powder coat is similar to your colour, if slightly lighter... 8)

But as a die-hard Kona fan I definitely think this one of the best I've seen - and the Kilauea is second only to the Explosif in my affections...

That's bloody lovely mate! I just need to find the right 20" kona frame and I can start my own custom effort... Btw the brown spoon looks just fine to me!

That's my kind of retro bike - still in the spirit but nicely hot-rodded.

Simply beautiful.

Two points:
1 I've never gone for lay-back posts
2 You need to mix a stronger concentration of orange in your water bottle.

See you on 23rd.
