Hello everyone, I’m going to rise to the gauntlet laid down by Captaincowley and throw my hat in the ring with;

Matttymm’s 1997 Kona King Kahuna.


Really pleased with how it’s turned out, close to catalogue original with some more modern twists.

I think he's overstepped the mark and should be banned to a month I haven't entered.😠
It's not his fault.Due to his location/poor roofing he's been crop dusted regularly since birth and has grown 3 of most things.🏕️🛩️💨👨‍🌾🌫️👹🦵🦵🦵
Nice to see a bit of Ti,and Ti doesn't get much nicer than that.Stunning bike Matt,be careful leaving it in the hedgerow if you're gonna be standing in the middle of that field all day!🦅👨‍🌾🦅🦅

If I do get banned, can I request the August special BOTM to be “97 Konas in Somerset”

I’m amazed at that response captain that you’ve managed to keep it to less than 2000 words and I’ve not fallen asleep half way through reading it. 😉😉

Glad you’ve been able to recognise a field mate given you’ve only ever seen them in pictures or on TV. Has the sun gone down yet in Grimsby?

Thanks for the support though. 😀😀 and your kind words in there.

Darwin could probably explain it better than I could....

Matt discovered early on that a bike was a much more effective means of escape than burrowing.Though he has to be careful of his spines on the back tyre when descending.Note both pedals in exactly the same position.He nods down the lanes like a rusty oil derrick,sounds very similar too.Particularly funny if you ever see/hear him in the granny ring.A sticky resin secreted from his toe glands secures his claws to any pedal,just like SPD's.
He's also able to steer with his tongue,handy when trying to flee/fight off over-amorous suitors.Hence the high bars.No mechanical brakes,parachute style scrotum.
