Bit late but the Winter hack has been completed!
The Explosifs are officially dry and weekend muddy use only...my new daily use is a Hammerite Black 1994 Kona Kilauea with some spare parts thrown on.

Here's my '97 Kona Hahanna!

She's my urban fighter ;) It was a singlespeed with a magic gear of 34-17, but then my knee started to go bad. Now she's a 1x9 of 34t up front and an 11-34t rear. The forks are DMR Trailblades. I love the ride so solid and the shifting is so crisp! I've never had such clean shifts even on my bikes equiped with XTR!

Anywho enjoy! I'm lovin' all this retro Kona love!

Up soon will be a '91 Kona Fire Mountain once I clean her up!

If anyone decides to part with an 18" Explosif frame, please don't hesitate to knock on my door with a price gun and photo's. 8)

Edit: This is recently sold on, but I shouldn't just beg here without adding Kona content!

Does anyone know if there's a way to remove the rear brake bosses? I don't mind the welded on mount being there. I just want to get rid of the threaded portion.

Cheers :)
