Hi there

I picked this 1992 Kona Lava Dome up from my lbs yesterday

The bike is in great condition for its age

Took it upto haldon today

Had a great feeling when i was catching the full sussers on the downhills and then leaving them on the climbs

kirbdug :D

That's really nice - very original

I really like the 92 Konas.

Enjoy :D

Lovely! This is the bike that got me into mountain biking. My friend bought one back in 1991 from Boddens in Dundee and I thought it was just incredible. I wasn't quite so well off, so I bought a 1990 Fire Mountain which was on sale (light blue with white splatter). Still the bikes that I compare everything else to.

Superb! Just picked up a 92 Lava Dome myself and yours has inspired me to find some A&B Drives for it. The big tyres look the tits on them and mines running 1.9 Smokes at the mo.
