I bought this in August on eBay from a retrobike member and I know it’s done the rounds on here over the last few years with people suggesting it could be a Kona Explosif but the only thing I’m sure of with it is that it’s not a Kona...

    Do crown races come in different sizes to suit different bearing size? I fitted a Kona threaded headset which has 1/4 bearings in the bottom. Should a standard crown race fit or do I need one specific for 1/4 bearings ?

    Cable liner for 2mm cables

    Does anyone have an idea where you can get any cable liner for the exposed cables along the top tubes. There’s some in ebay for modern cables up to 1.6mm but I don’t think it’ll work on 2mm cables. Any suggestions are welcome.
