    There is a Rockhopper under there, honest guv

    Hey Richard, Nice build! When you say, Wheels: Rims were OK-ish especially for the price, but needed a fair bit of work to get them in shape. Is it the truing that needed the extra work? I'm looking for a nice set of 26" wheels, the ones you used look a lot like the Mavic XC717s I have on...

    Help Identify Mid 90's Rocky Mountain Frame

    It's definitely not a 98 Blizzard as it doesn't mounting holes for the anti-chain suck device under the chainstays.

    Seller of retro marzocchi decals

    I bought Bomber Z2 decals from Gil @ RetroDecals. If he doesn't have them he can design them for you but it'll cost more.

    Wanted Xtr outer cable.

    Legit curiousity.. what's the difference between XTR cable and non-xtr cable? i recently came across a bike with Shimano outer grey cable - is this the fabled unicorn XTR outer? Is there any difference in the inner sheathing?

    Kona Titanium Frame Serial Numbers - List on Page 9:

    Thanks for your hard work maintaining this thread, Pip. I'm not sure if this is the right thread for general Hei Hei discussion, but I thought I'd throw this in here. I was curious about the weight differences, if any, between a full 3-2 titanium Hei Hei and a HHKK with a 3-2 front and 6-4...

    Kona Humuhumu stars and bars, tell me all you know about it.

    Dayum, that's a nice pick up. If that's really a P2 Ti fork.. ;) It would look really nice holding up the front end on my Hei Hei.

    '92 Explosif - Modified. Unpure.

    Nice build! Would you mind measuring the radius of your 27.5 wheel/tyre setup? I'd like to see if i can do this on my frame, but the chain stay bridge distance worries me.

    The unicorn bike paradox

    Yeah.. that's exactly it. My unicorn was a '95 Kona Hei Hei Titanium, so I went n+1. Life is good, I'm in a happy place. I'm done. Then I did some research and found out here from @Pipmeister and @Mortonm that there was a '96 Hei Hei King Kahuna with different tubing... Now, I'm done, but...

    1999 Kona Hei Hei... 98 Oem+ Rebuild.. Update 02/10/21

    How are you liking the P2's on the Hei Hei? Wondering if I would be doing a disservice to such an awesome frame by putting a rigid fork on it, and also if my old man stiff bones would be able to handle a jarring ride..

    ** Show us your Modern/retro Kona **

    Wow, that's nice. I'm on the hunt for an M970 wheelset myself.. bought a front hub without questioning the seller enough and it showed up as a centerlock M975 front hub.. Here's my 95 HH running an XTR M970 brakeset and a modern 1x11 XT M8000.

    1996 Kona Hei Hei - The First King Kahuna

    Nice.. orange would go well with that. I'd love to get a Z2 in orange - my fav colour, where'd you find it? I went with a purple chainring, my daughter's favorite colour.

    1995 Kona Hei Hei

    Thanks! :) Yah I did that on the Kilauea for a while using it as a winter bike, and I stupidly used electrical tape instead of zipties to secure it to the frame.. I don't really like the look of zipties or electrical tape. Pipmeister showed me about using a light clamp with a threaded stop -...
