Kona Cinder Cone 1995

Posted on
  • Picked this up locally a few weeks ago. It's in OK condition. lots of marks and a small dent in top tube that I'm not bothered about.

    Plan is for a canti front rack and child seat on the back for full Dad-mode.
    1x9 speed.

    I will build up from bits from the bin that I already have and deore level parts.

  • A few bits have already made it on.
    Ordered a matching fast track tyre for the rear.

  • Whats the function of the extra clamp around the seattube?

  • Just a cable guide for the rear brake. No idea why they didn't just add a guide on the frame.

  • Indeed, annoying if misplaced

  • Definitely. Luckily I was able to find one before bodging my own.

  • Best ever Kona graphics imo. Great frames but quite low at the front

  • Are fork/stem stock?

    Look great!

  • Yeah they look like it.

  • Lovely color and font type

  • Yep although they look a different colour to others I’ve seen online.

    1 1/8 threaded too.

  • Exactly what drew me to this one!

  • Yea I agree. They went a bit tropical after this.

  • The clamp is the Kona ‘dog collar’

    The seatpost should be 27.0 also. Did you cram a 27.2 in there?

  • That’s the one!

    No I had a dodgy AliExpress ‘27.2’ Seatpost in the parts bin that measures 27.0 so it’s a perfect fit. I’ll probably replace with a silver one eventually.

  • Got these matchy gold deore lx levers

  • Brakes and gears all cables up, need to sort out a dodgy chainline. Then just waiting on the rack.
