So, I raced my Hot for the first time last night and it handled like a dream.
Quick in the corners, climbed like a Mountain Goat and just overall handled the way it was supposed to. I changed out the Machine Tech Levers for Red Critical Racing levers and I think that just about locked up the look that I was hoping for. Steel is real!

Wow, blast from the past.:)

Looks great!

What are the threaded holes on the flat section of your left seat stay for?
Never seen that before.

I was told that this frame had been a Kona Factory "team" Members.
Supposedly it was sent back to Teesdale and fitted with the disc mount and then repainted.
I could never confirm this but.......:)
