Yeah, the Kona is butted cromo , so should be utilitarian tough. The sloping TT is not to my liking aesthetically , but the ride is really quite good. At least it doesn't have a unicrown fork, I hate those things. I had an 09 Bowery from new some years back and this thing poops all over it for ride quality, and at 9.6kg for it's size it's not a heavy old pig like a lot of the Plain gauge internet specials. Spec of parts is Ok for the coin, and can be upgraded as it wears. Took it for a run on my usual commute route today to see if it suits. The 42/16 saw me spinning a little too much on the way in, but was spot on for the elevated ride home. May change to a 15 on the rear yet and see if it's any better.

Here's my ride

Not everyone will like the frame as it's a Potential Of Hydrogen PH01 but to me I like it...for a first bike to own it is great for me...as it's something that I can use to learn off in terms of parts and maint...

A lot of the original parts from the PH01 are now gone and been replaced, still going to do a few more things to it before I move on to building my own "Proper" bike...

Well here it is hanging on a bike stand at work...

Wow, that's one tight rear end Brian, how long are those chainstays? Triple triangle frame always catch my eye.

Now, onto the brake. Who set it up with the QR open? :?

Hey i can see the bikes, the photography's good enough :) . When you have a spare hour or 10 just have a trawl through this thread and the bike gallery thread and you'll soon get an idea of the ingredients for a nice pic.

The Felt is my pick, especially the neat little saddle bag, looks cool.

Unknown (probably Aussie) maker, big, solid. Put the Suntour Edge cranks on for now to see how it fits, going for something more suitable soon (and not 53!). BLB sealed bearing hubs on deep V running a 17T fixed one side, 15T fixed the other. Got some platforms and SGB straps to alternate with SPD's depending on mood. Got a drilled fork that will fit straight on for braked use.

Yep. Identical geo and size as the bent one. Seller (most excellently) shipped this one down free as a replacement, and we agreed to bin the other one. Swapped the fork, headset and BB over and plugged the rest on. Stripped the paint off the fork when I was convinced it was fully chromed, so it looks good with the red frame.
