So, sort of impluse purchase
This really has to be the last one in the stable as I have no room at the inn.
I really wanted a Kona Hot with the famous stars and bars livery. The chances of that happening and within a sensible price range are marginal. So imagine my surprise when I went through my usual searches and up popped a fairly decent looking A'ha frame, from the 1997 range - my absolute favourite year for Kona's - in 18".
Initally I was worried it would be too small, but after checking the geometry, it's pretty much a 19". The reach is the same, the stand-over height is slightly more.
A few messages later and a deal was agreed:
I pick it up in two weeks when I'm back from a week long work trip. As you can see it has the original cranks and chainring but not much else. Soooo, tips and recommendations for the build are VERY
much appreciated. It'll be used on road, so semi-slicks are the forte - I'd like something fancy but that doesn't take over the beauty of the paintwork.
There appear to be very few on RB so if you have one or had one, how was it? What was your build? Any stories are welcome!
