    Kiluaea, cool eh?

    I went for a wee pre-class ride on my Kiluaea this morning and remembered why I love this bike so much. My other bike is a Turner 5 Spot but if I had to choose one bike, I think I'd stick with the Kona. It's just an awesome bike.

    The shots below are from the big hill behind my university. Considering this is in Seoul, with a population of about 12 million and some of the highest population density in the world, I'm pretty lucky to have this set of tracks only three minutes ride from where I live. There's enough twisty, tight, up and down singletrack to keep a rider happy for at least a couple of hours.

    Looks like some excellent riding! Do people also walk those trails?

    What year is your Kilauea? Is it the Reynolds, Colombus, or Tange tubing model? I really want one of those frames!

    It's a '98

    I miss my '98 kilauea. It was Reynolds 631, 853's little brother. After it was stolen, I upgraded to a '99 853 explosif. definately my favorite.

    Cheers top_ring. There is some very good riding in and around Seoul. Lots of hikers in some places though, but they are friendly and we are careful. There are many tracks in Seoul like this one below - lots of hikers and rocks. I prefer dealing with the rocks as it's easier to predict where they will go.

    It's a great frame, and the only original part left on the bike. The bike has a long story as it was actually stolen over three years ago and I managed to reclaim it about 8 months ago after seeing it by chance.
