    I'm afraid not, but it's not something I'm concerned about with this bike as I have almost always ridden the bike loaded, fairly slowly. If you're looking for lightweight definitely look elsewhere though!

    Sorry for not following up; frame is sold pending arrangement of delivery. I will post back on here if anything changes

    Thanks for the interest all, had a few PMs too and just waiting for some responses from a couple of people now.

    2017 58cm Kona Sutra frame and fork (plus BB, cranks, chainrings and headset).

    I'll be sad to see this bike go as it's been a solid tourer, commuter... and more recently 1x 'gravel bike'. Tyre clearance is up to 2.2" with 700c, geometry is relaxed and it's a seriously solid frame so it'll go anywhere. The paint has some marks on it, particularly on the chainstays but otherwise it's in good condition. No issues with the BB or cranks, the headset works but is on it's last legs so I'd suggest replacing it (1 1/8'). I replaced the forks last year with black Kona P2 fork as I managed to cut the steerer of the old set too short (muppet) but there is plenty of steerer with this one (60mm).

    Careful of the sizing as the 58cm is ST length; see Geo chart below.

    I'm looking for £200
    Preference given to collection from White City, London but will post if there aren't any takers for that.

    Sounds quite mad; "I'm not going for the traditional derailleur design, it will be internal in the frame. The rear fork will have the derailleur hidden inside, so you won't have this big derailleur hanging to the side. Then the front derailleur will be inside the frame also."

    Most sizes were gone on their website in about 2 hours! Mental. I managed to get my Large Mehteh from Woods Cyclery in New Forest though... might be worth trying some of their other stockists?

    Yup, same here sadly. Not too surprised given my lack of ultraracing experience and the fact that they gave a few entries to GBduro2020 entrants, still gutted though!

    I'm still planning to ride the route in early summer though as it looks great

    It's a 2017 version and has the 73mm BB and loads of tyre clearance;

    I'm 187cm tall so it's a pretty long frame for me but I've loved it. Will post a link in the next few weeks when I get round to selling it
