It is done

The Unit is now built and briefly test ridden.

Final Spec:

Kona Unit frame
700C Kona P2 forks
Hope XC headset
On-One/Planet-X Wheels with Panaracer Cinder 2.25 tyres
Truvative Stylo cranks and Gigapipe BB
Shimano LX disc brakes
Easton EA50 bars and stem
Planet-X seatpost, Selle Italia Oktavia saddle.

The ultra-short forks combined with 180mm cranks seem to be a recipe for disaster, I suspect one or the other will end up getting changed at some point.

The LX brakes are a doddle to set up, hopefully they’ll be as reliable as my 4.5 year old XT ones.

Proper test ride later, probably.

    It’s very bike-like but battleship grey! Good camoflage for the north sea! Needs a good Sturmey-Archer 3 spped hub really. Doesn’t the LBS do those nowadays? I used to have a 4 speed one.
