The Unit is now built and briefly test ridden.
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.
