Inspired by raidan73 (over on the Kona page), I did what any sensible retrobiker would and spent what was left over of my holiday money on some Charge Splashbacks. Made a few other changes too, seatpost has been swapped for a Ritchey WCS as I couldn't get the saddle where I wanted it with the Titec post and fitted some uberbike lock on grips for a bit more comfort. Pretty happy with the result :D

I recently built one up.. went with a carbon Ritchey WCS fork. Couldn't find any P2s. I kind of like the Mango color..

Quick update as I've changed a few things here and there as I've actually got round to riding it off road a fair bit! :oops: The road cassette and Ultegra mech have been swapped out for an XT M737 11-28 cassette and an XTR M952 rear mech. The front mechs been upgraded to a XT M738 as I finally found one to fit. Also managed to find a 22t Race Face ring to match. Seatpost has been swapped with my X-Lite Clikon off my Chameleon and the bars have been replaced with a pair of Syncros risers for a bit more control. Absolutely love it, just need to find a King headset and I might just stop tinkering (maybe) . . . . . . . . Gaz

That's lovely, the new colour is much nicer. It's a nice build too...I can't believe that your hubs are still red, my old front Bulb is pink now.

Finally managed to get some amber walled WTB VelociRaptor's for her. Gone back to the flat bars too. Happy Gaz!
