IMHO they look their best with a Ti seatpost and stem and dark components, particularly Black, Have you weighed it bare yet?

Gonna keep my eye on this project. Was watching it on ebay too. Way out of my price range. Im just a printer. Lol. If it was mine, it would be none other than xtr all round with ti post stem and bars. Otherwise it would be like buying a mercedes and putting a vauxhall bodykit on it with citreon wheels. Lol. Good luck with this one. And i like the pic, winning it by 89p.

If you look in my 'sig' you'll see it's under the 'previous' heading, so long gone unfortunately.

I have a 1999 kona explosif as well and also watched this kona king frame on ebay. At one stage I considered selling some of my collection to fund it. Look forward to following this build.

Obviously this is a nice frame but thats huge money to pay for even a great frame like this!!

What is special about the KK frame over say a Hei Hei or a maybe a Merlin which you could buy a bit cheaper?
