My second post
I was wondering if anyone could tell me what kind of forks this bike uses? Is it 1 1/8" threaded or 1 1/8" threadless forks. Also what size steering tube does the Kona Humu has so that I may be able to attain the right fork for this classic bike. The guy says this bike is about 20 years old. If some one could lead me to the right direction in knowing which replacement rigid fork I could use I really would appreciate it.
Aloha and mahalo,
Hi Al and welcome,
There are plenty of Kona experts here who will confirm or deny this but I believe it is a 1996 model in an 18", possibly a 20". An 18" would have a 23.5" top tube centre-centre measured horizontally i.e. if you measure the actual top tube it will be longer as it is sloping. If it measures 24.5" then it is a 20". It would have originally come with Project 2 Sport forks, threaded for a standard headset. Someone may be able to confirm the steerer length required but you can just measure the steerer of the current forks to get the correct length.
The link below takes you to the gallery where most of the old catalogues are available.
Edit: Is there any sign that there have been old rear brake mounts that have been removed from the seat stays?

Hope this helps?
