Rare, weird, heavy, unloved. We. We're made for each other!

Sadly I snapped a chain stay pivot a couple or three months ago and built this with the xt etc.

The kona will not be split as it has a very special significance for me these days.

The shed will be raided. The ugly duckling will MFing live again.

Hopefully. :facepalm:

Edit: I have everything required to offend. I love this bike. Must be the gloss is making my eyes water as I type, honest ;)
