Kona Kula 2-9

Bring on EFTA '08.

Building my new race bike up in March was probably a bad idea but I couldnt wait...I have an addiction. And now I have to wait probably many months before I can ride it on least around here. oh well, at least I can stare at it a bunch. I think this is the first bike I have ever had that actually looked like a race rig.

Only thing its missing is a black seatpost to get it looking perfect (gina agrees, so a purchase must be made), plus my current post is an old clunker and I can probably shave some more weight. Not that I care but I already shaved so much weight off I might as well keep goin. This rig is easily 2-3lbs lighter than my last bike and mentally it feels like 10lbs.

I think I am going to leave it un-cabled so I don't try something stupid and ride it in 3 feet of snow and mud for now and maybe try and take it south to ride down in MA once trails down there are ready.

The red is added for pure SPEED


  1. is that water bottle cage carbon?

  2. nope. space age composites. CF is so 2005

  3. Excellent, the red will definitely make you faster
