Ive had a retro Kona itch for a while...
i also needed a bike i could rig up to my Turbo Trainer..
and i had just about enough bits in my spares box that nobody wanted to buy, to build up a whole bike..

then i spotted this frame for £26!

The paint work isnt the best but its otherwise sound.. a powder coat may be in the frames future.. but we will see




Really impressed with the way it rode on its maiden voyage.. it just wanted to take off everytime i pressed the pedals..
the rigid fork and fat front tyre will be being swapped though.. too much of a harsh ride and the suss forks should raise the front end a bit more and take some weight out of my hands and dodgy shoulder..
