Depends on the frame. If the sticker (teasingly not readable in the photo) ays 531 then its a decent enough frame, certainly at Lavadome / Palisades / Rockhopper sort of level.

If 501 it's Kona Hahanna sort of level - still a proper bike, but nothing to get excited about.


I'm not the hugest fan of Konas but even I'll say that BITD you would never have compared a Kickback to any Kona, they were worlds apart. Kickbacks were generally seen being ridden in town and were three or four sizes too big for the riders seen on them. Konas were usually seen on the trails or at the racetrack :)
