My trusty Unit finally met it's match two weeks ago in the most destructive wildfire in Colorado history. It didn't give up easily though--despite the high temps of the burning garage, and a brick wall falling on it, the frame and fork are in remarkably good condition! I always knew it was a tough bike and this proves it! All of the aluminum and magnesium parts on it are gone but the chain and BB spindle are still there. It was a very good bike, and it will be missed!
However, like a phoenix from the ashes, my riding buddies and the MTBR community built me a replacement already which takes some of the sting out of the loss. Here is the karma bike--built with an amazing set of spare parts that people in the Colorado Front Range forum donated to build one of the sweetest bikes I've ever thrown a leg over. Last night's virgin ride was one of the best rides I've ever had, and I'm blessed to have such an awesome group of friends!
I don't plan on leaving the Kona family though. I've always wanted a fast XC bike and the King Kahuna is calling my name!
