remove the spin wheel

make the chainset a bit subtler

and you're well on your way to a fine looking machine

Good base frame, however the 'pick and mix' parts just arent working.

Need to trim back the colour explosion, and sack off the SPIN front wheel.

I really think the FLITE works well with the whole Kona look.
A good alternative to the rare Kona race light saddles.
