Kona Lava Dome – the quest continues


Chris's Kona.

Chris's Kona.

In response to my shout out for a midnight blue Kona Lava Dome, Chris from Aldershot got in touch to offer me first refusal (or swapsies) on his purple weapon.

Unfortunately, according to the hazy pics on Bikepedia, I reckon this is 2002 vintage, officially after Kona lost the plot with its frame designs. Let’s keep it old-skool, Chris. But good luck with off-loading the rig – and nice shed by the way!

    That’s definitely not a 2002, the 2002 was pale purple. It’s a 1997/1998 version, last of the steel frames iirc… My brother bought one in ’98.

    Oops, apologies did some checking and I was out by a year – it’s a ’99 Lava Dome. Kona called the colour “Positively Purple”.
