Winter Training Outside, yes, outside - Kona Singlecross

After months of my long suffering - and by now deeply concerned - mother holding the webcam in front of her gleaming frame (just so I coould check the geometry, you understand!)... the Golden brown Kona Major One Single cross and I are reunited - thanks to and with a grudging smidgen of gratitude to the lady manning the check-in at Manchester Airport!

Without further ado... here she is:-
SRAM cranks, brakes & hoods. Mavic rims. Vittoria tubs. Sigh. I never dreamed I'd  own a  winter steed like this,
Getting a pair of solid clinchers made by Frank Esch (former German cyclocross champ'.)
Chris King headset, Thompson stem, Zipp carbon bar (may swap this with the Deda on the Serotta. Sealed cables too.
Thompson seatpost, Fizik Arione saddle. A very comfy cockpit.
Double single-speed cogs - a very nice touch. 
As soon as Herr. Esch has finished giving her the once over I shall be hitting the 100's of km of trails surrounding our little village of Neunkirchen-Seelscheid. The cheap but tough clinchers he's building will be flip-flop.. oh, to ride fixed again... I love it!
