No problem. I like the build!! I've got a Kona in progress hopefully it will be together soon. I like the riser bar w/ the rigid fork.

cheers. I tried flat bar w/ bar ends but it didn't "feel" right. I hope to use this on some 10 hr enduros this year..... obv with different forks (looking at some new sids?) keeping it to max 80mm travel.

Any recommendations? would love to ride mostly retro but not sure when it comes to suspension forks.

I have my period 94' jersey at the ready!
