Hi,

Thought I'd post some pics of my new build.

Saddle & stem are off of my Orange Kona Koa & they will be exchanged asap. I'm really happy with the ride. I know it's not to everyones tastes but I wanted it to have a few modern components as this will be ridden everyday!

No shame in putting some new bits on to make it rideable. Works for me :D

Thanks for comments guys

It certainly tears up the hills!

I'll get some better pics up in daylight hours when I have time.

I may end up ridding her of the disc, this is all I have at the mo.

The frame has to be seen to be believed. It's immaculate for it's age. Well the prev owner was Jez....!

cheers


Martin.

bloody lovely. It's just the best shape isn't it. Such great geometry. (And the best era of Kona stickers).

Lovely, but is the modern fork not to long for a 93 frame?

Messiah I hear what ur saying, the geometry doesnt seem to be compromised by the longer forks.
