For sale: 1999 Kona Explosif 16”. Reynolds 853 frame in stunning phantom grey metallic paint. Kona Project 2 forks (normal drop outs, not BMX style). Currently shod with Scwalbe City Jet 2” slicks for summer commuting duties after theft of my usual commuter and now reluctantly decided to sell. I intended to build this up into a large BMX but never found the time, so it remained a slightly eclectic mix of parts from previous bikes or purchases as stop gaps. I would consider selling as frame and forks subject to a reasonable offer.

The frame is near immaculate (a couple of scuffs and stone chips) and the whole bike is consistent with light use. I've only done about 1,000 miles on her.

Frame: 16" Kona Explosif, Reynolds 853
Forks: Kona Project 2
Headset: WTB Momentum w GreaseGuard
Cockpit: Titec stem, Hell Bent wide but bars, bar ends, WTB grips
Saddle: Selle Italia Flite two tone red and black
Seatpost: Kalloy extra long
1994 or 1995 XT Rapidfire shifters and levers
1994 or 1995 XT V brakes
1994 STX RC front and rear mechs
1993 175mm LX crankset 26/36/46
Not certain about the bottom bracket - could be LX or XT
Front wheel: 1994 STX hub laced to Campagnolo Zark rim
Rear wheel: 11-28T XT cassette, XT hub laced to Mavic 217 rim
Tyres: 2" schwalbe City Jet (in amberwall)

Whole bike: £300
Frame, forks and headset: £250
