I like that build a lot! Looks balanced w/ classy traditional choices. Love the suntour seatpost and the whole front end of the bike. IMO first class vintage build.


Thanks for the nice words! I made the change since the duller metal finish is better in keeping with the two-tone paint than the XTR post I later sold on - it also complements the XC Pro shifters. Why I didn't do it before, I don't know!

(US catalog space lists the 93' Hot with a XCD Suntour post)

Haha thanks! I'm not actually sure what I should do with the patch :roll: - maybe frame it!

It’s great initiative that Kona are running to give back to their followers, in producing articles on owner's builds that standout from the crowd. I'm not aware of any other manufacturer doing the same thing which is testimony to the brand.

Other than Raidan's Kona 1990 Titanium, now in different hands, it's the oldest bike to feature on COG, so far, all of which are in direct contrast to the modern rides documented there. See also Alasdair's fantastic collection Kona Team Explosif

Perhaps in time this will lead to more retro content from Kona.. For example, I'd love to see more unique one-off frames, such as a Custom painted 1989 or 90' Explosif show early work from the Art Department..
