After what seems forever, The Kona Fire Mountain has finally made it out of the spare bedroom.
It's a 92 Fire Mountain frame and forks I purchased off ebay and built up. It was never intended to be built as anything other than spare day to day bike, to use in the summer after I finish work, I can go on some gentle trails round here, rather than pop home and change bikes. For proper off road stuff I'll stick to my modern stuff.
Certain bits are retro - Frame and forks, X-lite Bars, chain assasin and grips - Sefas Connectors in Wildgripper green.
I'ts running 9 speeds, modern LX at rear controlled by Deore shifter. I may go 7 speed with a thumbie.
To do - new chain, touch up of paint, change tyres to some black and green wildgrippers I've got on the way.
Wheels dont match - Superstock at front from 2000, modern superstock at rear. Currently matching rear wheel has dead freewheel.
Let me know what you think (only if it's nice
Sorry for quality of pics - it's a crap camera and it's very overcast here.
