The difference are the rim. You got mavic rims with CK hubs. You can tighten your spoke and getting a stiff wheel.
The sun rims are not as strong as the mavic, and the friend who builted my wheels had to do it with care.

You could lace them up on 32 front, 36 rear then. Or just stick to steel spokes. My impression is that the ti spokes works a bit like the revolution spokes. So if the runs could do with revolution they would be ok with the ti ones.... And did I mention how nice I think your bike is.

In my opininion, the better ano color for titanium is purple.
And kona used purple and apple green in their logo.
Newsboy had tried purple parts on his kona heiHei and it gave me the idea.

For the combo, it's titanium and it was made by Moots.

I'm not a big fan of ano, but this is very tasteful!
Good job you did'nt go for the usual parts like seatpost and stem/bars.
BOTY would be your grand slam. :D

Gorgeous, the purple anodising looks really bright against the frame as well.

Just amazing, makes my Hei Hei look very, very tame!

Well done on finding some Ti P2s, they're at the top of most of us Kona fanatics wishlists :D
