Thans for the nice words on the bike.
And Yes, Im totally into those TNT hubs too. Could be temted to try to find an old tnt crankset too. But that got to take som luck to find that...

Do any one know if TNT made some Quick Releases for the hubs? I got a similar hubset back then in the 90es... but I can remeber have been seeing any TNT QRs.

The number on the head-tube is a danish serial number. And yes, normally it goes in the BB tube. I dont know why they put it up there... maby just to make it look crappy ... :-)

Nice one Jakob, I love the color too. Maybe you should polish your cranks, they would match the TNTs perfectly 8)

Thanks a lot... I have though about that. They show some wear from bing used on my DH bike for some time...

I have put on a new seat in matching colours... what do you think? Too much or ok?

Lovely colour kona. Looks aboslutely sweet, especially with those forks.
My 2p, I would personally go for a black saddle, but up to you, you've done a great job with the bike :wink:

Thanks for comments... On the flicker photos it is with a black saddel. May be better. Just cound not keep myself from getting this "retro-wannabe" Kore saddel for it.

I have actually been wondering if I should get some black lower legs for the Marzocchi or even polish the ones I have now (the green ones).... would that be a sin?

Was too lazy :lol: Had a look now and I stand by my thoughts, but the Kore one isn't that bad either so go with whatever you like.

I would definietly keep the forks green though, I love that lime colour!!
