Hi, just thought I'd post some pictures of my Kona Manomano from 97'. Purchaced from Lesure Lakes Daventry
Still rides well due to some recent upgrades and still love to give it a good thrashing every now and then!!

Enjoy!

Position of the saddle makes it look a little awkard but apart from that I love it, I'd imagine it still rides well too.

Yep, the saddle was a quick new addition for the pictures. Its now in my riding position! :wink:

As for the Gripshift, they are what I fitted 15 years ago. Will proberly be upgraded in the future as and when........



Thanks for the comments.

Lovely stuff! It's nice to see another one - they ride well even after all this time.

May I recommend you switch to a nice pair of XT rapidfire shifters to enhance the driveability?
