Great to see this again 8)

Funnily enough I was out on my Hot last week as well, that doesn't get out as much as it should either! I'm still undecided whether to put gears on the thing :oops:

Funnily enough, I have exactly that fork on my 1996 (green) Explosif. I think it goes quite well, but admittedly not as well as this perfect colour-matched design. I must confess though that I preferred the Hot in the form in which it won the Kona of the Month poll Doug. I think the black parts and the fatter tyres made it look more macho.

Excuse my innocence, but is the idea behind the PORN sticker on the top tube something about the 'bike porn' concept?
