Yeah Mate!

I Think you nailed it!

Very understated and cool looking now. Like the cap, those little bit's often give a bike the finishing touch.

Cheers Dan

Sweet looking bike. One question...

The kula was built for racing..Who am i to argue..! The bike performed flawlessly it was just me that was a bit duff ;)

The tyres were excellent too..I really can't be bothered doing the different tyres for different conditions thing ! I want to stick a pair on and peel them off once bald :shock:

The course was a variety of hardpack/gloop/sticky mud/tarmac/loamy/rooty and they performed well in all situations..not perfect but these are a good all rounder.. On my tyre scale 8 out of 10 :)

:lol: I'm just as bad; they were destined for my blue 'Wot' because they matched the 531 decal, but then I started with the turquoise ano. and they clashed :?

So I used the grey to match the cables :roll:

Terrific Kona BTW; I shouldn't really like it, but I do 8)
