Thanks for comments... On the flicker photos it is with a black saddel
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!!


staying to the lime green also saves me a lot of time polishing! It is more than enough with the bars that I am polishing for my ritchey at the moment! ;-)

Yeah keep the forks in limegreen. To be honest I don't think the saddle matches the color (at least on the pics)of the frame and I would probably stick with the black one myself.

I think, there's to much colour arround the frame involved which puts the frame in the 2nd row, but this frame should be the "star" of the build. If you can, keep the colours simple - it dont need more. Just my opinon :)

Could try to put on a black seat and black bars and see how that would look... think I will stay with the golden rims. And it could also be interesting to se how it would look with a black fork. I ran it with a black sid xc at a time... looked ok.But the disc taps was kind of wrong... Cant find any pics...

But here is some pics with black saddle and more shiny components (xt/xtr)

Great looking Explosif, I personaly like the Bombers the colour they are, they seem to compliment the frame and wheel colour very well in my opinion. To much black stuff on bikes nowdays as its an easy option.

Getting an opinion from a real kona lover is greath. I think u are right about the saddel. It will get the black one fitted again.
