    Cove Hummer

    Can anyone tell me the first year of production for the hummer? Does anyone know the relationship between the Hillside hummer and the cove? What I'm specifically wanting to know is what sized fork A-C was the 94 made for?

    ^According to the Hillside site, 'twas '94 that Deep Cove (working with the Hillside designer) first designed the Hummer, which was contracted to Norco to be produced. It seems he has more info on the Hummer than his own Hillside frames, but it sounds like they're pretty much the same design.
    ^More info on the design of Hillside frames, geometry, etc.

    My frame is at a shop right now, but if you have specific questions about the frame I can go check mine.

    Thanks for the response I can see by your other postings that my frame has a similar serial number. My real question is about suspension adjusted geometry. Since 94 was when Kona changed their geometry, is this reflected in the Hillside. The frame is currently got a 440mm suspension fork and I want it rigid and need to know 395mm or 410 ( as Kona changed to in 94 Thanks again John
