    Pass my shades, I’m going for a ride
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/115603660331

    I‚Äôve got a yellow Flite in the garage that would go beautifully on that ūü§Ē

    Surely it’s actually worth more than they’re asking with some of those immaculate retro parts on there!

    I used to call mine rastabike, but it had a bit more yellow, orange and red on it then (nothing like that one though) ‚Äď I‚Äôve toned it down a bit now. This is the current look

    Old Kona hardtails are so nice. Wouldn‚Äôt mind a set of those Manitous for my retro Fisher Sugar too. Quality kit from yesteryear ūüĎćūüėä

    The bike is ‚Äô97, the forks are 2000 X-vert Supers (slightly long for the Kona @ 105mm, but it rides fine) ‚Äď the elastomers (they are spring and eleastomer) must be shot, couldn‚Äôt get a sevice kit over a decade ago. But they still work ‚Äď at least well enough for what I use the bike for. There‚Äôs a grease port on the back of the legs, which has undoubtedly helped

    I’ve swapped elastomers for Leffe corks before.

    Old Kona hardtails are so nice.

    Until they snap by the dropout, I‚Äôve done two and I only weigh 65kg ūüôĀ

    3 x 8 speed drivetrain… with no front mech.

    He’s got another similar bike, possibly even more colourful with the yellow Sachs not-gripshifts.

    Also selling two Klein Mantras, there’s a bike I’ve not seen for a while.

    I quite like it TBH, my 90s Kona was relatively boring there’s something to be said for having a splash of colour on a bike…
