roland-green-4832Here’s something a little different for #tituesdayswithkona. It’s Roland Green’s 1997 Factory Team frame, he rode this during his second year on the NORBA circuit. Despite the Columbus logo this painted bike is indeed Titanium, Sandvik made in fact. It was repainted and rebranded to give the Kona Factory team the lightest and strongest mountain bike for competition.roland-green-4840
