Thanks Forum..new bike's a Beaut

After a long time making a decision, US Post delivered my new hardtail yesterday. It was an Ebay purchase, and I am very pumped that I now own such a nice bike. "I am not WORTHY!!" comes to mind. It is an 05 Kona Kula Deluxe with an interesting setup and some nice upgrades. The nice thing about the 05 Deluxe compared to the 06 is that it is specced like an 06 Primo....which definately cost more than I can dish out for a bike. Bikes in Canada also seem to cost more period. The bike has a Kelly Rigid fork and a 29 inch rim. I plan on putting it back to stock and already have a new Fox 100 RLT and the original rim. Nice upgrades are an FSA carbon bar, Chris King Patriot headset and, Thompson Elite post and stem, as well as a SRAM X9 rear derailleur and shifters. These photos with bottom of the barrel digicam do not do it justice.

You're right. The photos don't do it justice at all.
