Kona Major One

I hope I'm not thread jackin'
I'm just so stoked for my new SS CX rig!

But yesterday I raced the Liberty Bicycles Off road Squeezer MTB race yesterday.

Took the top step in the single speed cat! On my GF paragon w/ magic gear 34X13. It was a small cat. with only a few strong SS'ers. But I placed 37th over all too. Not bad!

Then after the podiums my number and 4 other peeps # got pulled from the hat of 775 other riders. THE BIG BIKE DRAW!

Here's me waiting for the other #'s to get pulled. Check out the prize!







Here's me jumping for joy after all the other peeps got eliminated!




Here's me holding up the Kona Major One!


The only bad thing about this awesome prize is, I just bought the Specialized tricross Singlecross, last month.
Not really a bad spot to be in though.


The Major One is spec'd out better than my Tricross Singlecross. geometry is different and stuff.

I have yet to ride it. Tomorrow at CX practice with the gang.

This is how I raced mine for a couple seasons. I recently put drop bars on it so it would have the same position as my geared bike, but I do recommend the moustache bars.

Rebuilding mine this weekend after a nice repaint by IF.

IF Steel Planet X with track dropouts
Meteorite Metallic flames over Gloss Black
Campy Record brake levers
FSA crank (38x16)
Will build a rear tubular for it next year, so Fango Clincher on the rear, Fango tubular on the front.

Pics soon.

Nice! I was thinking of doing something similiar-what levers are you using with the v brakes? I have some avids I wanted to use

Dia-compe 287v levers. They are designed for use with v-brakes and work pretty well. I did a full season in Portland on them and didn't have any mud issues - although we only had a couple really muddy weekends.
