Cool pics and must say those old Kona Sex mtb's look almost modern untill you examine the brakes 8)



The cable front disc is very good so at around 15 Stone I'm not complaining.

The rear sucks, mainly because I still haven't sourced a pivot arm for it so the setup runs at a Kant (is that a real word) yet I like the LX cantis and will run it like this until a pivot appears.

Thought yesterday about getting a disc tag brazed on the back but immediately dismissed that as I've already done it on an Explosif and havny built the bike yet :oops:

Got original Headshok forks fixed. Edinburgh bike coop mechanic used to work on them and they still the tools. Damper pulled out no bother and new spring popped right into place. Was happy to pay but only wanted a pack of biscuits, but I threw in a case of Tennants as well. Not always a fan of the coop but guy couldn't have been nicer.
