Kona Unit – First Ride

I ended up doing about 18 miles on the Unit last night.

Kona Unit

A few minor issues came to light. The chainset still creaks annoyingly, I need to change the grips, the chain jumps occasionally, and the forks are scarily flexy. Other that that it was fantastic fun to ride, a much better fit than the Kaboom it’s replaced. Anyone want to buy a 19" Kona Kaboom?

    sweet! CHain’s too slack, that’s why it keeps coming off. hth. ;-)

    that’s assuming it keeps coming off. If it keeps jumping, I reckon it’s the same problem.

    The chain doesn’t look very slack.

    Where has the nice weather gone? It’s rubbish today :(

    Still nice here, I’m trying to clear the back bedroom out though.
