This Kona Fire Mountain I have know about from day one. Its a little complicated. It started being owned by Friend 1s dad, it never started life as a out the box standard bike. It was bought as just the frame and forks and built from there. Friend 1s dad sold it to friend 2 after a few years friend 3 (his brother) bought it. Then it was my turn, owned it for a while until I bought my cindercone then sold it to friend 4. He sort of neglected it and left it in his garden for a few months, he needed some cash so I bought it back. It has been unused for about 5 years now minimum, its kept for sentimental reasons oh the good old days!

The spec isnt anything amazing Deore LX front and rear mec, Specialized rims, offroad flexstem stem. Thats about it.

Its getting new cables soon and Im going to ride it again. I need to find a new bolt for the seat post first.
