After spending more and more time on here, as well as spending more time doing cross country time stuff rather than jumping around like a loon (really starting to notice I don't heal quickly anymore!) I decided to get myself a Kona to have a play around on, and leave the Chameleon to the heavy stuff.
I talked to my parents and convinced them to 'lend me' one their 2 Hahannas. Bearing in mind that my mum and dad are mid 50's and late 60's respectively you'd think that would be an easy task... er - no.
Anyway, after taking off all the halfrauds stuff my mum had attached, putting back on the velocity stem and bars back it came with and adding a pair of wildgripper lites I had literally forgotten I had, it looks and rides a lot better! A lot of the components are odds and sods as the bike was bought second hand around 8 years ago, and the previous owner had 'upgraded' some of them.
The Manitou forks barely move, so I may be looking for P2's to match if anyone's got any?
Any comments and advice welcome!
