    Paddy Wagon Pics (Owners Club)

    Well I did a search of every thread with paddy wagon in it, and couldn't find a dedicated one to pics of them from owners.
    Hard to gauge their popularity or how common they are. So i thought I'd get the ball rolling. if this is a double up or unwarranted then mods please feel free to merge/move/delete.

    I never really liked these frames from an aesthetic point of view because the top tube is not dead horizontal, and looks a little awkward. A cycling buddy has one and rated it as a solid consistent ride despite my ribbing about it's looks. A recent need for a basic bike to commute on and a clearance on these in a LBS saw me consider one of these over all the other online generic low end turds we have available in OZ.

    Already swapped out the saddle, post, tyres and put a Velocity wheelset on, and will swap anything that wears and breaks as time goes on. Changed the rear to a 15t for 75 GI.
    The look of it is slowly growing on me, but most important is the quality of the ride from the frame. Welds are neat, geometry is a nice balance for daily use and I can comfortably fit 28's with room for fenders should I need.





    So come on out the rest of you! Pics please. I can't be the only Paddy Wackin rider.

    Title needs more "MEGATHREAD"

    Kona's world headquarters is a short bike ride from my house. It's a little office in a business park in a small farm town. Pretty humble digs for a decently sized bike company.
