Hi,

This is my 1996 Kilauea Single Speed. Only 1 kona left in the Kona collection now. Sold my 1995 Cindercone to make room for my Cannondale sm700.

Nice-looking bike. Do you prefer the handling with the shorter 91/92 P2s?

Well Spotted Anthony!

They are indeed the early "spinner" made P2's. Had Rock Shox on originally. The front end does appear to be lower than before, handling not sure have not had enough use to tell. I am trying to get hold of a pair of suspension / period corrected to compare.

rgds.

Recent e-bay purchase:

'97 Explosif 18". Standard spec with a couple of nice bonuses - Middleburn blue/grey rings and a USE suspension post.

Only collected it on Friday - a few things to change: saddle (for a Spoon if I can find a brown one), tyres (they are original and are cracking a little - going for some lightweights - Maxxlite or Twister SuperSonic I think), maybe switch the USE for a Thomson.

£195?? Was the seller being transferred to a mental home? Have you no sense of shame man?
