Here we have my workhorse Kona Explosif from 1995 with prototype 1996 paint - owned since new by me and ridden/raced on three continents. I could get it resprayed but I like the patina of age... I did all that damage myself
Complete - latest incarnation, all components have earned their place with the stem for example coming from my 1992 Rocky Mountain Blizzard (RIP)
Dropouts - track ends fitted after the orignals snapped at the chainstay in 2006
(Look... no tensioner
Campag road hub radial wheel - built for laugh but now 6 years old
XTR cranks and Jericho Suffering - 33tooth because
Dented top tube - done in 1995 when it was two weeks old
This frame was meant to be a stop gap but once I'd dented it I couldn't sell it... and here we are 12 years later.
If the trails are dry this is one of my favourite bikes for the local forest. I'm so glad I never sold this baby
I don't believe in cleaning my bikes, the layers of muck are a protective coating
and I'd far rather be out riding
Lets see if it gets more than ZERO points this time.
He's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy.
95 Kona Explosif Singlespeed/Fixie - 100% Thrashed since new and it's still very well loved (and it looks it).
