Excellent build. My only niggle would be that I would prefer silver parts on it myself, as per the original design, but if you're going to turn it black then Ringle is a pretty good way to go about it!

Yes it is definitely a 96, and it looks like a size 16 from here.

Ti might be replacing the Ringle stuff, and yeah after measuring it again it is a 16" :lol:

Nice to see you got some Marzocchi's on the front end, the perfect looking boingy front end for a Kona IMO :wink:
