what kind of rims on that Roast and what is a "Kona A", never seen one, also never seen a Roast, now I'm not the most familiar with Kona, but those seem really cool.

TWO CHAINS?!?!?!?

I could see how it would prolong the life of the drivetrain, but that's just weird!

I wish I had a digital camera so I could post a pic of my current main mountain bike. I just gutted my Giant and gave my old 97 Schwinn Mesa a full XTR set up with an XT crank. Its also got a kore stem, a hellbent bar, and Mavic 221 rims. The RST fork will be replaced after I get a new car. I also ordered a new Salsa seat post clamp because the old one is worn out. Its rather rediculous, because I have at least 1500 bucks worth of parts on a frame that only a fool would pay 200 bucks for if it was new, but hey, it does ride nicely.

What's a "sold" frame? Not produced anymore?

Know he means that it is sold frame only. Sold being a verb.

The definition of sold as a verb is the past tense of sell. I don't understand how that makes it different from other frames.

Ohh I'm sorry. I guess I read his post as "the kona a is a sold frame only" not "kona a is sold frame only."
