One of the nice things about the old Kona bikes is that even the bikes at the lower end of the range were all chromoly, so this bike is a good weight even for modern bikes (just less than 27lbs) which makes it easy to climb hills on and handle.
Thank you for all the replies.
Unfortunately that Saracen wouldn't be suitable, trying to keep away from suspension and keep it very simple but thank you anyway.
The Alpinestars would be too small but is rather nice.
You've all given me a lot of things to think on, a steel frame would be nice and simple, I've also been taking a look through some old Trek literature and they did some small frames around the early 90's including the Aluminium and carbon frames so I'll keep an eye open and see what comes up on Ebay.
Adding this to provide a guide for Kona's frame fits for the time (this is 1998 or 1997 iirc) but applies to earlier frames too as they didn't alter them.
Just standover will change a fraction with rigid forks.
