    Hello there, and welcome to Retrobike. Thank you very much for adding some pictures of your Hot to the Kona Hot Serial Number List. Yes the bike is a 1994 Hot in 18", and a fine example in Burgundy. You may like to start your own thread for your bike in the appropriate section...

    Kona Serial Number Lists: Hot: Ku: Titanium

    Okaaay, just a quick update with regards to moving into Malvern, and in the longer term, how we are going to administer the Serial Number Lists. A bit out of focus, but here is a picture taken from scrambling on my bed, and looking across at my Work Area - pretty cool I reckon :cool: : I am...

    Kona Serial Number Lists: Hot: Ku: Titanium

    Thanks Alasdair. I am off to Malvern later this morning, and will be staying there for a time yet to be determined. I didn't know how this was going to pan out, but I have been given a Temporary Doctor there, who wants to meet me. I assume that I will also meet a Macmillan Nurse at some point...

    Kona Serial Number Lists: Hot: Ku: Titanium

    I didn’t know the best time to do this, or indeed how to put this into words, but here goes; To summarise; as this bloody awful disease progresses, I will be less able to contribute to the site. Firstly, there is my general knowledge of all things Kona X.C., which it could be said isn’t quite...

    Kona Caldera Serial Number List - update June 01/07/22

    Normally I could put something together rather better to do some more effective comparison, but I'm not so tickety-boo right now, and have left the harder work to whoever may feel the need to wade through these pictures. Yes you are correct regarding the tubing that was used for the confirmed...

    Kona Caldera Serial Number List - update June 01/07/22

    I’ve been trying to compose something here for a few days now, and I am struggling for a couple of reasons. Namely, I’m obviously a bit under the weather and on some fairly heavy gear to help with that. I'm finding it somewhat complicated trying to figure out these different types of tubing from...

    Intrsting Hei Hei on facebook (canada)

    Some newer pictures have come to light of this unusual frame: Going by Cable Stops and Dropouts alone, it has to a 19” 1993 or ‘94 or ‘95 frame, but with rather more modern 1998 / 1999 Down Tube Decals, some generic “Kona Custom” and “Hei Hei” Decals, and the very interesting “Police” Decal...

    Kona Titanium Serial Number List - update 01/07/22

    Okaaay, back to some Titanium...... I have updated the Titanium Serial Number List with a superb addition from Sándor. This time it is a 1999 17" King Kahuna with an intact Orange painted Head Tube - good call. Pip

    Unusual Kona models or colours

    A frame can be made from a mixture of tubing. For example, a 1998 Kapu frame that I have on file uses Reynolds 853 Main Frame tubing, but the Seat Stays and the Chain Stays will probably be Reynolds 725, or even generic 4130 non heat-treated stays. The Ritchey stamped Seat stays that you...

    Kona Hot Serial Number List - update 01/07/22

    Ah, rightyho. thank you for that conformation. I have a really good Samsung Monitor, and a blinking expensive HP Computer with and upgraded Graphics Card, but despite all that.... I appear to struggle with seeing detail very well 🧐🤔🧐 . Although I do need to consider that I am on fairly hectic...

    Kona Hot Serial Number List - update 01/07/22

    Thank you very much for the pictures of your Hot frame. I will add it to the Kona Hot Serial Number List, when I have confirmed a couple of details: I can say that it is a 1993 frame built by Tom Teesdale, but I am not very good at figuring out a size from a picture of a frame only, but I have...

    Kikapu

    The frame is 2005 Kona Kikapu, and would be best listed in the "eBay & Marketplace Watch 1998 -->" section. Pip
