(Original thread title was "I see you have constructed a new...")

<BLANK>. Your skills are complete.

Well, I haven't constructed (built) it yet nor do I have it my hands. And my skills are debatable at the best of times. But can you guess the <BLANK> heading my way from central Europe right now?

If this get's past one page I'll be amazed :lol:

I'd be amazed if it's not a '97 Kona! Have you got yourself a Hot?

:lol: Well...

Continuing the tone of my last three builds, there's a nice story behind this.

For the eagle eyed (obsessive ;-) ), who do you think built it and when? :wink:

Yep, it's what made me go from "wow that's nice" to "wow I want that". Before all is revealed, here's a side-shot. Here you really start to see the beauty with all it's oddities. Hot's are never "normal" and this one definitely falls into the unusual category.

Both these shots are from the seller. Fingers crossed she makes it to me in one piece :D

They should work - perhaps check your settings.

Is it a ‘97? Decals suggest ‘96 but top tube routed front derailleur cable and v brake cable stop don’t match mine.

Does the serial match the type built by Altitude with the Goat dropouts? Still not sure who built mine with the standard dropouts and HT*** serial.
