First frame I ever purchased and built up. Also, first year Kona and many other companies began to do sliding drops; an innovation that probably began here in the Springs with Eric Barr of Groundup Cycles. Pretty light frame with dedacci cromo but the paint chipped easily and the headtube ovalized. I was maybe dropping 5 footers onto flat concrete...oops. I dealt with it a few years and rode in a lot of places. It was quick handling and a good bike. This is the picture just before I tore it apart and hung it on the Graveyard Wall of the basement. R.I.P. Kona.
