and here is my kona hahanna, not sure what year i think it might be 99 or 2000. i got bored and put all the stuff from my saracen protrax on it for a laugh and now i REALLY like it. i know its only a low end frame but with the full LX and nice wheels its well light and rides nice :D

frame: kona hahanna
fork: rock shox judy xc (with speed springs)
groupset: full shimano deore lx
wheels: mavic 238s/lx hubs
USE seatpost, wtb seat, transX bars, spds

love the trailstar, i ran mine with 24's but have gone back to 26's now, no real issues with the smaller wheels but i got 24" dmr rims and theyre mighty wide/ heavy, were better for manuals tho 8)

Don't do the white rims...it'll make the bike look like every other jump bike/BMX around at the moment
