I'm running the London marathon this year, so with training, work and three dogs to walk :shock: bike build time is at a premium :?

So what gets built first the Kula or the Hei Hei :?: I've had a Hei Hei before so I know how nicely they ride :wink: but I've wanted a Kula for a long long time so I can't decide :?

The Kula is going to be full 8 speed XT with Sugino cranks and Kona finishing kit and the Hei Hei is going to be full XTR 950 with Ringle bits :) and a nice Flite not the Charge one on there now :wink:

8) :shock: 8)

for me the 97 Kona livery is one of Konas best (behind the 96 livery :wink: )

Kula for me, as the colour scheme is in todays world of black & white bikes a neat touch. Keep those matching Marzocchis, too many bikes with RS (and I really like RS) also function is ace.

Keep us informed about the progress :D

I'm thinking the Kula because if you find its too harsh or in the worst case you crack/break it then you can put the parts on the backup Hei Hei ;)
