Kona Dew 19 inch alloy frame bike, 24 speed gears, 700c wheels with quick release hubs and a new sets of brake blocks fitted last month. Overall mechanically sound and rideable and could do with a new set of tyres and a service, back brake and gears a bit stiff. All original components apart from the saddle which has some tape over a split and like the rest of the bike a bit scruffy but it’s only cosmetic.
Frame is good straight and true with no structural damage to the tubing or welds, all bearings good and running smooth. As you can see from the photographs the paint work is scuffed and chipped from general use and from the chain used to lock it up. On the + side the Kona handle bars and gear change levers escaped the scrapes and are in good condition and the wheel rims are straight and true.
This one cost me about £550 around 6-7 years ago, selling as I just got another new bike with the cycle 2 work scheme.
Similar used Kona bikes done up and looking pretty with new paint work are selling on ebay for £250 - £400, so this would make a nice a winter restoration project if thats your hobby. Otherwise just a scruffy quality bike needing a bit of tlc that can be ridden away as it is and the way it looks at the moment will be last in the queue to get stolen.
Collection will be from Ealing in West London
