I have a Kona Smoke 2006 which I use for commuting and touring.
It was cheap to buy with budget components but it has a steel frame which Kona do well and more importantly it fits me.
The bike is in it's original form with all stock components.
Fitted is a cup/spindle BB which needs tightening every few months, so I thought it time to fit a replacement and while I'm at it, a new chainset.
I want to keep the BB square taper so I am considering a Shimano UN54 mated with an LX triple.
Will these be a direct replacements? As it's all Shimano Mega 9 I'm assuming it'll fit no problem.
I'll measure the spindle when I take it out but I think it's 113mm.
The rear mech is a Deore Mega 9 mated to a HG30 8 speed cassette.
More advice will be needed as I proceed...
