Got my hands on a 2006 Kona Kula Supreme frame that's never been built into a bike :mrgreen:

It's an 18" and weighs 1,350g on my scales

Will keep you posted as the build starts

Love the bike, then again I may be biased. :)

Still my favorite mountain bike. I have probably built 5-6 mountain bikes since I got this one, and yet this is the only one that I will not sell.
