Caldera it was
Return to the bike
Kona History: I was teaching overseas in Singapore, and felt a tug back towards mountain biking. Picked up a Caldera, and rode it whenever I had the chance. Had my tough times over there, but heading around Bukit Timah also grounded me. The trails may have been limited, but it lit a fire in me and I carried that back home after my contract ended -- along with the bike. It served me well here, along with scaring more seasoned riding friends I tagged along with (at the top of CBC: "you're riding that? Ok, let's take things easy…). I made it down that ride relatively unscathed, and the Caldera's since been put in storage, but it's always going to be important to me.
