What is the bar height?
Same bar height as my tracer with a 150mm fork. Like the poo-poo brown and the low placement of the Kona sticker. Get that hanger. Lets ride.
How much does she weigh? Is that your new SuperD slayer?
Yeah, The headtube is pretty tall so it's hard to get a low bar height. I do have a spacer under the stem though. Although I am noticing that I like my bars a little higher these days, so I may still go a touch higher. Kona is actually coming out with a production steel AM 29er hardtail in the near future that is set up for an internal style headset.This will be my everything bike, including XC races, super d races, epics, laps on the new trail, ect. It weighs around 27lbs.
Talked to a Kona rep today and it looks like a month or more for the geared dropout. Looks like it will be a single speed for a while.
Buy a file, a drill press and a chunk of Boeing Surplus aluminum.
I'm actually thinking about taking it to a machine shop. But if it's going to cost $100 i'll have to wait.
The new Kona is now being turned into a rigis single speed. My new frame will be here next week! It's a real AM HT this time!
