Either or really... although that said, I like P2's best when they're color matched to the frame, so personally I'd go for Pace's - disk only too!

Mmmmm, Explosif.....

I'd be tempted to go for canti as well!

Thats a really nice frame. I never had a '96 but I think it has go double ovalised top and down tube like the '97 - pure steel gorgeousness.

Gold for gold and do what you want with it old chap.


It's not the ovalised tubes like the 96, it has a fluted downtube just like this HOT Image
I think this would have been pre 96 for an explosif??? Anyone know anymore?

I think that 93 was the only year they did those downtubes - certainly mine are from that year and are fluted. Nice! :D

http://www.konaretro.com/ would be the place to find out for sure!

Definatley go with rigid as a stick forks and 2.3 front tyre.
As youve got disk mounts you might as well use them.

Stewart and I have debated over the year of that Hot. The 1995 Hot definitley had the ribbed downtube as did the 1993 Explosif. V Nice 8)
