Lovely original Kona Kilauea mountain bike which I bought new in early 1997 although its been pointed out its a 1996 model. It pretty much totally original with the exception that a long time ago I added marzocchi bomber forks and replaced some of the Kona own brand curve stuff with Shimano XT. Itll come with the handbook and I do have the receipt somewhere although I wont offer that just in case I cant find it.Its in good used condition and rides nicely as youd expect from a quality bike. Its nice and light at around 11kg and the forks feel nice with 50mm of travel. Ive only been riding it on cycle paths with my family for the last 15 years so its been having any easy time. The only things it would need to make it pristine is some touch up of the paint, some new tyres as they perishing and theres a little play in the front wheel bearings.
Its a shock tech carbon front hub which has off the shelf sealed roller bearings. They can be bought very cheap and take less than 10mins to change. If I was keeping it I wouldnt bother as theyre still nice and free. Kona Race Light Columbus cyber mtb frame. XT rapid fire shifters front and rear.
XT V brakes front and rear. Shock Tech carbon fibre front hub. Mavic X517 rims front and rear with stainless butted spokes.Continental cross country folding tyres (the rear has started to delaminate). Its a great bike which Ill be sad to see go but Im hardly riding anymore and I need a clear out. Collection from Bridgend South Wales.
