    Vittoria Freedom tyres : Anyone know the date of manufacture?

    I fitted a pair on one of my bikes but they don’t seem to run perfectly ‘round’. I might try them again but I’m not in a rush.

    Chainring sizes - 50t/40t/28t

    I had 48t triple bio pace on a Kona a few years ago. It wasn’t a problem and I rode it for 5 or 6 years before selling the bike.

    1991 Kona Explosif - The Purple One

    I used some antibacterial hand gel to get some grips on. Seems better than hairspray.

    Splatter is the easiest part I’d say. Just get a 1/2 inch brush spray paint into to cans lid and flick away. I did find that you’re better off using a little at a time to get smaller spots of splatter, as the paint starts to go off quickly and starts to string together more.

    New paint arrived and I’ve splatted it and given it a couple of coats of Kerin lacquer. I’ll leave it to harden for a day or two and then get it put back together.

    1990 Kona Explosif now completed

    A bit of progress. It’s had a coat of primer and black paint and the decals have arrived from Gil. The neon pink splatter hasn’t quite worked on the forks so I’m not risking the blue I bought. I’m waiting for some different blue and pink paint to come to try it again.
