since people seemed interested in the two kona frames i recently sourced, i thought i'd make a thread for them.
i got this one because i really liked the geometry of my paddy wagon back in the day and i couldn't find a honky inc (factory disc version) that wasn't overpriced.. this will be the runaround bike. rival hrd group and 650x42 tires.
to fit the tires i need to cut the stays and i'll also add a disc tab.
yesterday i got together with my best mate and we started cutting everything up..
this is the frame/bike i didn't even plan/want.. the £6.50 special :D 2002 true temper ox frame with ritchey dropouts (non-slidey) and disc mount. i have some bits that i'll be using on this, eg. a lefty fork (to be modded with a 28.6 steerer) and some 650b wheels.
we drilled out the rivet from the lefty's crown and tapped out the steerer - we turned a holder for the clamp and precision-angle-ground a channel so the clamp's notch would fit :)
