any of you remember that copper plated Kona?



I bought that bike off eBay and made some changes (see below). Fantastic bike. Although copper plating isn't the most practical of finishes. It tends to be very brittle, and "rusts" if not covered in clear coat.

It looked better before it had that bloody huge chainring on it - it's f**king enormous :shock: I think anything over 44T (42 is better) is just wrong, wrong, wrong....
Some proper tyres would have been good too.....
