Hi Kona,

We're looking at a buying a pair of Kona Sutra's for our honeymoon for a UK end to end tour, we've got a couple of questions

The front racks used to mount via a band clamp to the fork as there was a braze on missing, is this the same on the 2011 model?

We'd like to get the bikes logo'd to have our names on the top tubes matching the 'Sutra' font, can you tell us what font this text is in?

Thanks!

I'll ask the art guys if that's a recognized font.

For the rack if you follow this link http://files.konart.net/2011/hires/sutra.jpg you can see a closeup of the fork and the rack fixtures. No clamps on this one.

Hi, the decal font isn't an off the shelf pattern, it's a custom one. Even you found all the letters on all the bikes that us that pattern and re-arranged them they won't link together like script.

Our Art guys says though if you send me the names and an email contact he'll see if they can concoct something.

If that won't work then the best bet is to let the decal guy see the bike, and match by eye from what they can do. Some people I know will just paint instead of creating a decal but for that you really need to be a pinstripe artist.
