A while ago (sept 2016) I decided to build a Kona Hei Hei, thought about what to do for ages and settled on trying to recreate Steve Peats 1993 Kona Hei Hei. Firstly because it was a pretty cool bike and secondly as I wanted something that would be a challenge to source the parts for. Started...
Picked up a super nice 1995 GT RTS-2 the other day, one of the made in USA ones.
It's in super hope with very little use by the looks of it. Planning to build up XTR, Spins and Mag 21.
The previous owner has removes the '-2' from the top tube so will fix this as the build goes on.
Has a GT...
Wondering if you can help me get the exact specs of Steve Peats 1993 Kona Hei Hei. This is what I have at the moment:
Steve Peat 1993 Kona Hei Hei
Frame: Material 3Al/2.5V titanium, Sandvik
Stem: 150mm Ti Velocity
Fork: Marzocchi XC500 (51mm)
Fork Boots: Lizard Skin
XTR M950 FD
31.8, Top Clamp, Top Pull
Looking for one of these to finish off my Yo Eddy, Everyting else is 950 so hoping to tie it all up with this final part. Could also trade some other XTR/XT parts if you need something let me know.
Happy to pay postage to Melbourne Australia 3001,
After some Syncros Cranks and 10th anniversary rear hub.
Will consider a groupset if you had one and wanted to keep it all together. The abive will make up what I am missing on my RTS build.
I am in Melbourne Australia so need to be happy to ship down under.
just picked up this RTS-3 front end and I am trying to place the year.
my guess is a 94 or 95 but a couple of things have me questioning this, for one the frame is marked as '7000 aluminum', but this colour is not listed on bikepedia, any help would be appreciated.
I have recently came into possession of the following book while building up my Zaskar:
Sutherlands Rock Shock Front Suspension Handbook
and I thought I would offer to scan in what every you guys need, it's basically the bible for rebuilding a bunch of vintage Rock Shox.
It's a big...
After riding this a lot of the past few weeks I have just noticed a small creek from the rear suspension bearings. I am wondering what my options are here? Pull is apart and clean etc. But what if they are toast does anyone have a set lying around they want to sell me, (long shot I know).
Just [picked up a 2001 GT Zaskar - Race frame. Seller said it was originally the terrible red and white colour way but has been stripped and powder coated.
also has W stamped into the BB
Is there a serial number formula for these 2001 models that I can try and...
Hi Guys, just got my hands on one of my dream bikes. A 98 Zaskar LE, going to be building this up with XTR M952 and as much correct stuff as I can find. This is how it looks at the moment. I have a NOS Judy shock the same as the one in the pic that will go on the bike.
Can anyone tell me where...
I am looking to sell this a set but will consider splitting if no takers. Has all be recently pulled off a Proflex 955 that I am rebuilding. I rode this before stripping it and everything worked.

just got ahold of a 1998 Zaskar LE frame. I am wondering what the best option for forks is? Want very good quality. pretty new to the MTB game so not sure what I should be looking for. Not fussed if it is period correct or something more modern. Will be running XTR M952 V-Brakes.
Just picked up this 96 Sex Too, pretty good nick has a mix of XTR and XT. Rides pretty well but needs a clean up. Will try and get the rest of the XTR bits I need and then upgrade the fork.
