I've got my hands on a 2006 Kona Kula Supreme :D

Got some Stans' tubeless crest wheels on Hope 2 hubs
Conti Xking tubeless tyres
2008 Reba forks
SLX brakes with KCNC rotors (160mm)
SLX groupset with Hope X1 front ring
KCNC scandium flat bars
KCNC scandium 90mm stem
KCNC scandium seatpost
Fizik tundra saddle
Egg beater pedals

What sort of weight bike do you think it will build into? :|

Somewhere around the 10kg mark, but that's just a guess, build it and see!

Just weighed the current bike at 10.6kg
It will be split for parts & re-framed onto the Kona. If my maths is correct, it could JUST be a sub 9kg bike. Will keep you posted
