Hello future Singlespeeder,

I'm reluctantly parting with my Killer Kona Unit. It's a 19" frame which will do the job for people about 5'9-6'1ish. Built it up with a Recon Gold TK last year, and about 2 months ago set up new wheels using white Stan's Arches on some slick red ano fire-eye hubs with wheelsmith butted spokes. Fresh new Nobby Nics on there as well, which are set up tubless and great for the long sloppy/snowy months ahead. If you're looking for a great no-nonsense Singlespeed bike, this one is for you. It's a really fun ride, and works perfect on faster flowy trails, but you'll be amazed at the stuff you'll ride on it. I'm selling cause I bought a house with limited storage, and now that I'm house poor can't afford to maintain multiple bikes the way I'd like. That said, I'll fully ignore low ball offers so don't bother. The 2013 Unit retails for close to a grand plus tax, and this baby has wayyyy nicer wheels, and a bit of squish on the front to boot.

Also, if you're interested in going fully rigid I can throw in the original P2 fork for an extra 30 bucks. I'd rather not switch the forks out if you wanna keep it rigid, but if you can do it quick we can negotiate.

Some of the bits and pieces are stock, but updated parts are as follows:

Rockshox Recon Gold TK fork
Stans Arch Rims
Nobby Nic 2.25 (tubeless & basically new)
Fire-Eye Red Annodized Hubs
Shimano SPD pedals.

Thanks for reading, and happy riding.
