Looks awesome, and better with the canti's.


I agree 100%. And as much as I like Magura's, I think the cantis really suit it.

Thanks everyone for the comments!
I agree about the cantis and whilst they are not as powerful as the Maguras, the lever feel is much better.
It now has m900 shifters fitted. Part of me thinks a 94' Kona should have thumbies, the other part doesn't like the empty brackets on the brake levers :oops: :D
I've got a ti Titec stem on the way which is a tad longer and has some rise, should sort out the low front end and get rid of the black stem which I think is at odds with the rest of the build.
I would also like to fit a long travel kit to the forks, again to raise the front end slightly as currently the forks are a bit shorter than the P2 I have.
