haha, i am not a kona fan at all. they are just really easy to find here. they have really good frame design and are well made, but for some reason they are the most boring of the canadian companies. i prefer rockies, brodies, toads, and dekerfs any day......and moulden too, can't forget jim moulden. plus they are traders.

hey Jesse,

i had the same problem with my YO! Rusty pinhead sized holes in th ebottom of the seat tube..

I sent it to Rock Lobster Cycles in the US and Paul replaced it like for like and reamed out the tube to 29.4..Perfect, flawless job with welds equal to the Yo's 8) recomended!

The moby(29.4) was bought off e-bay years ago from a seller in Frace..He had stashes of NOS Grafton, Ringle & Cooks..Never seen him on the bay since :(

Now, if you ever part with that Slim Chance :lol:
