Nice job with the repaint! Decals look awesome! No Project Two stem?
A quick question. Do you know what size the seat post is? I ask because I have a '94 Humu and some lowlife ripped my post and saddle tonight while I was grabbing an order of fried rice to go. I assume our frames use the same size. Thanks in advance. PJ


Hi,

Thank you!

Right, it will wear Project Two fork and Velocity stem! I will post some pics soon.

My Kula Deluxe Easton EA30 seat post fits perfectly in the Lava Dome. It is 27.2 OD and 350 mm length (it will be better 400 mm). Note that both frames are 19" (Kula Deluxe 2006 and Lava Dome 1994). Apparently, your Humu 94 shall be the same size but.. you should check before measuring your frame seat post tube ID..

Cheers

For the most RetroBike purists, you will not like the final build up.. because only frame, fork (Project Two) and stem (Velocity) are from 1 994. Parts are NOS or stored at home from my Kula 2006 or Dawg 2005 removed parts (my retro parts were almost destroyed..)..

Salud!

Here are more pics (sorry, but in spanish): http://konaprojecttwo.blogspot.com.es/

if you were getting it painted, why didnt you get a cable stop put on for v-brakes?

I was thinking about it..

But I have seen many solutions about how to solve that using or not the original dog collar here in RetroBike. I didn't wanted to weld on the frame (I am not a welder and have no welding skills..).

I will show some pics with the final solution and I am also open for suggestions
