I've built and bought some bits and bobs for the Kila so I thought you might like some updated pictures...

Please click on pictures to make them big.

Rides like the wind! Yes, I know I have a mile of seatpost showing but I'm 9 feet tall and buggered if I'm going to wait about for a " Unicorn rare " 21 inch frame. The 20" suits me fine.

I've never has so much XTR on a bike. Those are the Mavic Stickers I accidentally bleached with Brasso the other day...:roll:

This is what I wanted....that classic Kona profile. Looks brilliant!
