A few years back I got on the bandwagon and uh, bought a Kona Bandwagon.
Here’s a little pic of the model for those interested:
Since buying it I’ve been perpetually upgrading parts, as you do, aware that not much I do is going to change the overall ride with a frame that is that freaking chunky, and heavy as sin (it’s basically a MTB with horizontal drops). It rides pretty smooth, and does the job alright. I use it only to travel to work and into the city (Adelaide —nice 'n flat) for — max 15km per trip.
For the last few months I’ve been scoping out frame possibilities, but I’m curious as to what I can expect moving from the frame I have to something sleeker, lighter, with a more, uh, aggressive stance (track geometry)?
So yeah, has anyone taken this model for a spin (or similar frame) and able to give me a comparison? — I’m a loner and have no friends with fixes to test-ride.
For the record, I’ve been eyeing off Colossi and Leader frames (although there’s a lot of chatter online that doesn’t have much good to say about Leader). Looks are important, it is a fixie after all…
