thanks :D

the stinky is a right blast to ride, puts a grin on my face everytime i ride it.

had a play round local woods this morning on it, was awesome.


one question, anyone know the year of the kona A, i've tried but cant find one with the same horizontal dropout configuration.

yep thats the one :D :D

rides really well, did have a set of pace forks in the front, but they developed a major fault (locked up on full travel), so got given the p2s to use.

may use the pace forks if i can sort them out.

the kona A changed a bit today, has 130mm marzocchi drop-off comps and a front hydralic disc brake.

i love these bikes as none are shed/wall queens, all get used/abused as intended.

stinky - play bike, when i wanna play in woods or down hill.

A - wet weather, commuter, all round hack bike

cindercone - when i wanna go on a ride and the stinkys outta action

general maintainence and the odd clean is all these bikes get, till the crap weather.

i'll get a photo of the whole collection on thursday morning.
