Kona Kula Two Nine

I realized I’ve never posted a pic of my new bike. Built her up three weeks ago on a Sunday afternoon. Rigid fork as it’s a hell of a lot cheaper than buying a new suspension fork, dics brakes some and disc ready wheels.

Go figure. This is the shit I already had in my garage: Some XTR, some XT, some Avid, some whatever. The crankarms and saddle have been with me for ever on countless bikes. When you’ve had it around for years and years, you know it’s the good stuff.

Rigid is fine for now. I haven’t been on anything all that technical or terribly challenging with eminent death, dismemberment and danger – danger – danger. I’m more of a smooth single track type of guy these days.

Kona 29er

Yo, I make a 29 look like a 26.

You may notice the road pump on the top tube (it just plain works) and continuous rear brake housing held down with electrical tape. A touch of class.

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  2. I have my continuous rear brake cable zip-tied to my top tube. That way my frame is free from the stickyness. But nice all the same.

  3. better watch out homey, that shit just may end up on bikesnobnyc. sure would like to see that commentary.

  4. The pannier connected to the electric socket on the wall is a nice touch, I guess you can’t go too far before the cord is all unwound but it beats doping for that extra little bit of assistance when you need it most.
