Nice build. Plain, simple, understated and classy. Those crossmax's look awesome on it.

glad you like how the bike turned out :D

small update - although the 8speed FD worked fine with the 9speed drive gear, I don't like the solution with the shims, so I was still looking for a matching FD - and was lucky, that I found one that quick and NOS it was too :o and this for very small money 8)

Nice one, it took me longer than i thought it would to locate an m952 fd in 28.6mm for my 98 kili.

Stunning build - and the best thing about an 853 Kona explosif is that they ride even better than they look!

This is tight - I like it a lot! Love the monotone scheme. 22lbs you say? Seems like you've set the bar :wink:

That's lovely and makes me want some old school Kona steel.

Looks gorgeous in white with black bits, really subtle and classy.
