I'm new to this forum, though I already read and learned a lot here!
English is not my mother tounge so bare with me for any glitches in my english...
Thank you for the many interesting threads which helped me to identify my new rig:
Introducing my "new" Kona Hei Hei:
I was in need of a new frame because my '96 ibis mojo (which I bought a smidge too big at 21.5") was really starting to hurt my back. Though I loved the mojo I had to make a decision, which was made easy by an offer of a friend who had a 20" Kona Hei Hei hanging on his wall, and which wasn't ridden very often because of all the other ti bikes in his stable.
We came to terms and the frame changed owners. Before that, I studied most of the Kona Ti topics on this and some other forums in the interweb.
The Frame is obviously '94-'96, but i was curious of the specific year.
Though the frame was stripped of most decals, 2 have survived of whom one gave the all important hint:
I couldn't find any pictures of this decal on other than '94 Hei Heis. It doesn't always seem to be in the same spot though.
After some more Google picture search, i found a very interesting blog entry from a guy who owns a '94 Hei Hei with all decals still in place. But see for yourself:
The bike is camouflaged to fly under the bicycle thief radar but that seems to have helped the decals to survive.
Anyway, this seems to confirm my belief that i have a '94 Frame. If anybody can confirm or disapprove my findings, i would be grateful.
And if anybody wants to know how it rides, i can only say:
Cheers everybody and Happy Trails
