Looks like the "Kapu" (Gesundheit)? and the "Dolomiti" are made by the same Taiwan factory.

I guess they are both technically KOF but somehow I feel we are stretching that definition to a dangerously weak degree. Maybe KOF also means "Kapitalizers Of the Fad"?

With the Bianchi Dolomiti, the introduction of the new retro Rauler in two models and this Kona that a friend is thinking of buying we might be seeing
   a resurrection of sorts in the industry. While Kona doesn't come with a lo ng history of making bikes, I believe this might be the first lugged bike t hey have?made, it gives one additional hope for the future and the offeri ngs that might come. Do they qualify to be a KOF? I do like the discription
   of the bike: "New this year to the Kona Road program is the Kapu. A beauti ful, old school lugged frame that harks (yep... used the word "hark") back to when frames were meticulously crafted in only small batches by guys name d Giuseppe." http://www.konaworld.com/08_kapu_w.htm ?
