Hi all,

Bought my Kona Explosif in 1993 at the bike-shop where I had a part-time job while studying. I refitted it with a Manitou M-Sport fork and forgot where I put the P2 - tsk tsk. The M-sport fork based its suspension on elastomer and they kind of collapsed around 2005. A month ago I decided to rebuild it as a single speed and put on a temporary fork. It still rides like a dream but the steering is wrong due to the temporary fork so I have been searching the forum for a "new" Project 2 fork. Found it but in a wrong colors so I have to repaint it once it arrives. I will post a new picture once the new fork is in place. If anybody out there knows the color code for a champagne colored Project 2 fork like the one on the picture let me know.

Cheers Niels

I'm not a great SS fan, but you've worked that quite nicely...

...the half-link chain does the job really well, and removes the necessity of an ugly tensioner 8)
