New addition that I just finished building up. The drivetrain is XC Pro and the cockpit is a bit of things laying around. Had a Judy on there but scored a non-sus rigid fork off of Ebay and am getting used to the direct sort of ride. It's my first Kona and liking it alot!

Yeah, but every Kona has one of them! This is something a bit different and I reckon it works nicely. Good stuff. 8)

The number of bikes you have Andy, and you don't have your favourite? Go get one! :twisted:

Thanks guys. I haven't used thumbshifters since BITD and it's taking a while to get used to them again but I love the simplicity! I wanted to do P2's on there but trying to find non-sus corrected threadless P2 forks is proving quite difficult and/or expensive. I have a Kelly 410mm rigid but it looked and felt a little "long" in the front so it's waiting for a frame to go on...
