Finished the build on the Cindercone refurb/conversion, rides really well, pretty light too, just waiting for period stickers now. The forks are Fox rlc's set at 80mm, but would prefer some more modern 80mm air forks.

The top cap isn't quite right colour, but the bars and headset are spot on, the decals will be Green too. I'm amazed Kona don't just do these frames with a disc mount, it just rides so well, my neighbour has a load of the modern ally disc framed equivalants and there is just no comparison in handling and feel to these. Would like a Green Ringle post in 27.00? Anyone?

Canadian made Race Face Air Alloy, 23 inch 5 deg. They made them in a range of colours, really nice too.

Whooohoooo, the Aussie Football colours :D

Keep your peepers open for some Middleburn cranks with the green spider, that would work well with that bike.

27.0 green Moby's though are as rare as hens' teeth, good luck.

Love it - but I think some P2's, perhaps in green would set that off a treat.
