agree with anthony, mine is a 99 19" and had a very low front end, but added a 100mm fork and it sat it up nicely and handling is fine.

This is interesting - I'm around 6'4" and happily trundle around on a 19"C16 with (very) short travel forks - seems comfy enough, long stem mind.

Also have 21" Konas but they are much less easy to chuck around I find. Experiencing extremely slow build of 21" P7 frame so will be curious to see how that compares with the 19" in comfort terms. Maybe by xmas :roll:

EDITED BIT HERE :arrow: Something else which affects things - on the C16 I have a long SK8 stem, as is common, which lifts at approx 5/10 degrees I guess. On the Konas all my stems (so far) are flipped so they are almost horizontal rather than angled upwards.
I've always done this for some reason. Perhaps I have an odd arm/leg ratio :D

[Wont let me post previous picture yet, not enough posts]


That's awesome! I have one almost exactly like that, same colour scheme. I was attempting to find out which year that colour scheme was sold, thought it was 1994 when I bought it but not too sure now. Anyone know? Forks on my bike have a square, welded crown. Not classic like the ones in your picture, don't know if this makes it easier to date?
