you lot are gonna hate me for this, i can see it coming
since i got the E3 and then the Elite i had to start playing with the stuff i have in the garage to get them built, i wanted to do this without buying completely new kit so i decided i would bite the bullet and modernise the kona.
the main reason i decided to v brake this bike as opposed to the others was beacuse it is the only one of my older bikes that doesn't have a rear canti mount which means i can fit the v brakes without having the dreaded unused cable guide which looks awful!! also i changed the wheels because i wanted the m900 wheels for the E3. also being as this is the retrobike that i tend to choose for the odd race i decided i wanted better brakes and lighter wheels. i have also changed the stem because being honest i only fitted the flexstem because i needed the cable hanger.
here's a before and after pic, hope your not too upset with the mods!!
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
