KONA are well respected brand from Canada.
They are normally associated with mountain bikes but also have a very good heritage in producing exceptional bikes throughout their range.
They have been producing road bikes for a number of years and their ‘Jake the Snake’ cyclocross bike was often considered the ‘Go To’ CX bike such was it’s quality. It was often used at pro level so became a good foundation for their road bikes.
Amongst their range of road bikes were models like the Zing (carbon road bike); Paddy Wagon (single speed); and ‘Lisa’ – which was their women’s specific bike. They also made a carbon version of the bike as well as TT bike too. All of these models were very well spec’d and was often considered a far better alternative to women’s specific bikes from Specialized, Giant or Trek.
The high spec and good quality frame material was one of the reasons why these bikes were preferred to the bikes from larger manufacturers, with the Kona being made from very good quality Italian Dedacciai aluminium.
This particular bike has an improved spec as we have upgraded the wheels, tyres, handlebars and stem to ensure a much better ride.
Along with the better components are an array of new parts that include a better saddle, bar tape and chain.
The bike comes fitted with an almost full Shimano 105 groupset, that includes a more versatile 11-28 rear cassette. It is fitted with an excellent set of FSA wheels that are shod with brand new (colour co-ordinated) Vittoria tyres. These wheels compliment the bike as well as match the rest of the FSA components. These wheels retailed for appx £350.
The finishing kit, as mentioned above, is all FSA that includes a pair of upgraded aero bars, improved stem and seatpost.
Replacement Tenn outdoors bar tape complete the refurbishment.
