Poopy forks, no thanks.
Also seat angle is ridiculous.

Rotor cranks are so nice. The engineering is 1st class!

Maybe for you normal size humans.

It's nice but that's a lot of cash for 4130 isn't it?

Wow, at 6ft 3in (190cm), a bike where I wouldn't be on the biggest size. That's a properly short ST too.

For whatever reason I don't love these Konas. Something is missing from the aesthetic.

Nah they’re not I’m 5ft9 and ride a medium (long) ti version. I have a longer body and short legs so I prefer this type of frame. So I don’t find the length an issue at all.
It’s 10mm more in reach then the large Hello Dave, shorter chainstays and a lower bottom bracket. (Steel version)



Wish these guys all the luck with these steel versions..

It's a cool bike, but more than anything the photos are just garbage. The rider is probably super tall, so there bikes will always look a bit shit. Do the Chameleons have really slack STAs?

The website says 72.8*, but with that kink in the seat tube, the effective is probably a lot slacker. The over forked front probably isn't helping either.

The photos where taken when my town was on fire. The sky was red. Seat angle hadn’t been messed with yet. It’s been adjusted. As has the post and lever angles. I hadn’t even ridden this yet when I took those.

Sounds perfect. Nice build.

Noticed your seat is about like mine and no comments. Lol. I don’t know about you but I put my seats on so they’re comfortable for me to ride... not to look cool in pictures.

That bike looks fun as hell. I loved my z1 and the z2 is a great fork. Just a bit too small for me.
