8) looking very nice mate


Thank you :) Think I’m in love with this bike, simple and classy with that perfect Kona geometry. Can’t wait to get out on a ride.

All cabled up :)

I’m still in talks with a gent who’s having the Ti brake tube that snakes around the seat tube remanufactured and I need a longer bit of plastic trunking for the rear brake cable but she’s fully rideable.

Some pics for now, more later:

Well, that is very nice indeed 8) 8) 8)

Looks like you have been out on it too, whats it like? as good as you hoped? curious about the ride with those forks.

And how/where are you getting the tube fitted? i would be tempted to glue it myself.

Tim that is lovely. Still think you need some P2s on though :)
I ran switchblades on one of my old OCLVs and they are a tad on the stiff side...
