I mean it seems odd as I have that exact frame and fork, and it has a quill stem.
What's going on with that stem? Surely the fork is threaded and a quill stem would've been standard on that frame?
Arrived, really impressed with these. One-piece 6061 aluminium, serviceable cartridge bearings and only ~300g a pair. Plus, bright green.
It rides really well, it's a bit lighter than the other frame and I definitely prefer using the Kona forks as opposed to any form of suspension fork. I haven't tested it properly as I just whacked a pair of road pedals on to go for a spin, hopefully this weekend I can give it a proper thrash.
Anyone have any suggestions for flat pedals? Or ones to avoid? Never mind, bought these!
New bottom bracket fitted, everything working well but need new pedals.
(Also built the stars and stripes frame up with the old Bianchi parts and a new Shimano BB).
Alternatively, if anyone has seen a half-decent cheap pair online, a link would be appreciated.
Where are you located? I'm actually in Italy so can keep an eye out for you, if you like. There are occasionally very good quality bikes for sale, for within your budget. The only issue is, you can't see them in person.
