Very nice 8) I didn't like the look of a Syncros stem when I had my Hei Hei but it suits the chunkier tubes of the Kahuna :wink:

Take that leaf of your front tyre though its really bugging me :lol:

Thanks very much for saying so, but a few things I'm not happy with :roll:

Cheers

It's a superb-looking frame, no doubt about it. You don't often see them with the decals in such good condition, as they peel off titanium so easily. I suppose the only negative is that some people find the decals a bit too pretty to suit such a macho frame.

How do you like it to ride though? I think I would definitely be a Hei Hei man myself, if I could afford either, but how much stiffer do you find the KK? And how does it compare to say the 97 Explosif for stiffness?

It's now back as a frame :roll: and the Explosif back together, once it's rebuilt I want to be able to ride both 'back-to-back' to compare a) size for me 18 to 19 and b) the difference in the 'ride' :wink:

Cheers
