I can't see a set of black HS11/22s being a bad thing, even a set of HS33s come to that. Can never have too much brakes!

Looks awesome with the big boots on it! Sensible too as I imagine it damps a fair bit of the rough stuff.

lovely early Kona. I think it would deserve some skinwall tires and then be close to perfection.

Best

That's what I expected everyone to say, but I'm loving the rugged all-black look 8)

I chucked the blackwalls on there as they were the only tyres in the shed of that size, and was really pleased at how good they look on it. Not that bothered about 100% originality, although the orignal groupset and wheels are what made me pull the trigger on it., I wanted something on there that would, like shogun said, damp out the rougher stuff, we have a hell of a lot of rocks poking through the trails here and you get a lot of pinch punctures but also quite a bit of gravel and roots so if you are too high on the p.s.i. the front washes out.
I'd love to go a bit bigger to get a kind of fatbike look going but the 2.5 catches the rear mech and the 2.35 only just squeaks in.

Hey Spanky, have you got any links to your Konas ?

I seem to be devolping an addiction, there are other makes out there but there's something about Kona.....
