TOTAL: Roughly predicted 7.9 kg, so should end up around 8 kg. Maybe more if I finally decide to install some fenders on it.
did I forget something ?
Now the build is starting, the frame has (had) a nice matte finish:
Untill I rubbed a little acetone on the chainstay to install a protector. The matte finish is peeling off !!!
So, it will end up as a black, shiny bike ...
Pics to come as I gather the parts progressively...
I'll have to check if the zillion skewers I already have can fit on a 135 mm rear with thick alu dropouts.
Or I'll go KCNC Z6 mountain, or something like that...
EDIT: I had a reply form the seller, a bike shop in Toronto, CAN. He said the frame was a prototype from Kona made from Easton tubing (he didn't know the alloy though).
My take is it's an unfinished prototype. The finish is likely a primer, and they never applied either clear, or some paint to finish the project.
Under, there's kind of a shiny, black base coat. Not as nice as a finish paint, but I was expecting worse.
I'm happy with the frame. It appears to be pretty well made. The welds are nice and even, not one messy spot.
So, I'm starting the building back, gathering parts as they come...
