    kona kilauea 1999 steerer tube?

    I'm about to buy a 1999-2000 Kona Kilauea on craigslist (birthday present rebuild for my wife). It currently has an old junky suspension fork, plan on replacing with a rigid fork. Can you help me figure out what size (diameter) fork I would need? If I buy a threadless fork (like a p2), can I match it with a threadless stem... or is that impossible on these bikes?

    This is the bike, is that a 1 or 1 1/8 headtube?: Classic Kona Kilauea Mountain Bike

    Thanks!!

    That parts spec would indicate a bike older than 1999/2000. The newest part on there is circa 1996 (xt derailleur) and everything else looks older. But yes, it should be a 1 1/8th.

    I think you're right. More like a 95/96, I bought it anyway as it was in pretty good shape.
