So, after many years of sitting there in the garage, my old Kona Hot is being reborn. To many work trips and deployments have kept it on the wall.
Bottom line- I LOVE this bike. It is tight in the corners, stable at speed, climbs like a billy goat with its ass on fire--frame has been refinished. Has a new Fox fork waiting for it, still running Vbrakes on my Mavic Crossmax ceramc wheels.
So the question: The XTR grouppo was the best at the time, still in great shape, running a 3x8, with Gore cables. Can anyone think of a reason to upgrade the grouppo or any part of it? Besides that it is not sexy like some of the CF stuff out there. I have the money, but no real reason besides that it is old.
What would you guys do?
If I dont, I will be building a SS 29er with the money. Happy New Year everyone!
