That's good news.. This reminds me of my 90s steel stump jumper I finally gave to a neighbor that helped me for a full day of yard stuff. I hated letting it go, but perfect place to steer it from my non use. Also gave his wife my wife's hardly used GT Karakorum. My wife only wants to ride her Madone.

Nice project you got going there though...

I'd say 9/10 on the cranks/rings and bb







Shoot me a PM if you're interested

Thanks for that data point.



Stoked to see this come together. I must have imprinted on this era of Kona in my early biking years -- they just look so good.

Some tweaks needed, but we're rolling! (No test ride yet)

Things needed for sure:
  • Adjust chainline inboard (move ring to middle position, maybe adjust BB)
  • Get a chain keeper or narrow-wide ring
  • Mount up the front rack
  • Stem top plug/cap

Potential changes, pending some saddle time:
  • Bars feel low, but I'm also unnnnnfit
  • Bars feel super narrow, but might adapt easily once I get riding
  • Gearing
  • Grips

But yeah, that's full functionality! Accessories and stuff to come, more updates after a test ride or two.

What would y'all change/add?

The stem looks long. NORBA-race appropriate, maybe, but probably not for current riding.

Maybe a little shorter stem and some more modern bars with a little more sweep back, and some rise built in.

Oh yeah. It is era appropriate reach. And maybe like one size too big for me. I think some higher/swept bars would be enough actually. I'd like to keep the stem if I can - the built in hangar is nice!

Oh, and I'd like to swap in bolt ons for all the QR parts.

Moved the chainring over to the middle position since it was bugging me. Ready for a test ride tomorrow!

That's a zippy little bike!

My back is begging for bars with some rise and sweep. The clamp area is pretty wide though, so might not be so simple.

Alright! Got some VO Postino bars that I had floating around mounted so I at least get a bit of backsweep, if no rise. If this is more rideable I'll run it for a bit to see if they'll work or if I need something else again. And mounted up the Cetma rack - always a hassle (the rail is removable, not sure how I want to run that yet).

I do want to grab a non-QR seatpost clamp when I can - looks like I'll need a 29.8mm. And also replace the QR wheel skewers as well. Saddle and grips also might get swapped out. But totally usable, if not 100% dialed in. Just in time for a stretch of rain

SO much better with the swept back bars - absolutely a good, rideable position.

Still things to shuffle around, but it is a heck of a fun ride so far!
