    New question here. Good deals on a Kona Unit bike or frame online?

    I think i'd like to give the newer (>2010) Kona Unit 29er a try. I've seen mostly good reviews everywhere. Theres virtually nowhere around me to shop for one. Just curious if there are any good deals out there that im unaware of. I need an 18" frame.

    (I found one for sale on mtbr but the guy hasnt replied in a week)

    Thanks in advance.

    Bikeman Kona Unit Single Speed Frameset with P2 Rigid Fork, 19, Orange, 2012, i don't know if you'd consider this a good deal.

    Yeah, thats about the only frameset i've seen for sale. Not terribly expensive but $100 less would be spot on, especially since i plan on running a suspension fork. So its not a bad deal but i figured id ask around just to be sure. Thank you though.

    I am currently on vacation and went to the LBS yesterday just looking around. Found a frame clearout section and saw a 2010 Kona Unit frame for $200. No fork. Good deal? And what is the axle to crown for this if I decide to go rigid? Thanks!

    fish - that seems like a great deal. Is it NOS? I believe the fork is ~470mm A/C, which means you've got plenty to choose from (Niner, Salsa, Surly, etc.)

    That's funny, I wanted to buy that frame, but they don't ship, and using a courier would be way too expensive, giving me other options with that price. Check inside headtube and seat tube and BB shell for rust, since it's been on the island for the last few years. And if there's no rust, buy it! $200 is a steal.

    Thanks phsycle, yes it is NOS. The thing that is holding me back from buying it is that I have to build it from scratch. Maybe 800 more later I have a full bike.

    I checked the frame and it is mint, I love the color too. Today is my last day on the island, now I wish I didn't saw it.

    Ya, I have 2010, and I wanted to buy another frame as a spare. lol. This cute girl at LBS has 2013 Unit, and she said she wanted my unit but my unit was too big for her.
