Is it possible, to integrate a "Retro"-part on konaworld.com? I've got a Kona Nunu since 1999 and I'm looking for more of these wonderfull bikes of the early years. So I'm really interested in old stories, old pics, old catalogues and stuff like that and I think, there are more people who are interested in those details.

I remember there was some trouble with Koga in the beginning of the 90s because of the trademark. That's why Kona-bikes were sold as "K-bikes" in Europe in 1991 or 1992 or so.

Kona was - in my opinion - one of the most successfull brand in the early 90s, showed in many competitions. What about these stories and pics?

Maybe a dream come true and I can read old stuff on konaworld.com some day. wub.gif

I didn't own any Kona mtb's BITD (I started mtbing in '86) but did meet Joe Murray while he was in the UK (and designing for Kona) in 1990.

Also, in about 92/93 did some great rides in North Wales with my father on hired Kona's - the one I had was a Lava Dome and he had a Fire Mountain.
