Once again I’ve found myself bike lusting. I have the Rivendell listed for sale again, this time with a potential buyer. I have made some changes to my fixed gear, and it is a blast. Never thought I would say that…
Anyway, with the Riv potentially gone, and I want to spend more time in the dirt, I have been looking for single speeds to join my ICT in the garage. The ICT now has some suspension again, and it is a good time in the woods. Adding a single speed would be a great option. Enter the 2017 Kona Unit.
The Unit has always been a bargain in my book, and has been on my list of bikes for some time. This model year brings 27+ tires into the fold. The frame could also accept normal 29er hoops, and I have even read that it can take 29+. Haven’t seen evidence of that, just read on bike forums that its a possibility. All that for $1K. Not bad.
Long story short: If the Riv does sell, I am picking up one of these.
